I've already posted these somewhere in the thread but so far this is pretty much the transformation.

I think I like my hood latches the most out of everything.

HORRIBLE mod.

Yeah, i love my jeep. Though my mirrors are peeling... What would make it look more "manly"? Bed liner or plasti dip. And can a 16 year old even buy them without an adult..?

No, you need to be 18 to buy anything paint wise out of a spray can

Another thing you could do is take the little flare extension off as well. IMO.

Are you talking about that foot long plastic piece at the bottom right behind the front fenders?

I hate those things. Why are they there any way?

Wow! Thanks for the compliment! I thought I would try it out figured it would at least give me something unique. It worked out better then I thought it would haha... Also, I noticed today that it works well with my trail rated badge and the locks on my doors. Kinda gives it a flow.

Quick refresher question... If I add 1.75 spacers... Will I need any calibration? And if I put 32's on it how much turn radius will I lose? Also, will someone explain back spacing to me?

You won't really lose any turning radius, you will need an alignment , back spacing is how far your rim mounting surface is in the rim. Example, 4 inches will stick out pretty good

No you wont loose radius. You could do 33x12.5 and you would still have the same radius. And best way to tell you what back spacing is is it Google image wheel back spacing. I would do it buy I'm on the app right now lol.

I use the Harley mirrors for mine...but it does take a few extra minutes to bolt em on/unbolt em and when I'm in a hurry, that can be a bit of an annoyance. I want to try these out...seem to be similar to using Harley mirrors, but a little faster/more convenient.

Lange Originals 025-692 - Lange Originals Quick Mirror II in Black for 76-06 Jeep® CJ-5, CJ-7, CJ-8 Scrambler, Wrangler YJ, TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec

I have a set of relocation brackets sitting here...I bought them and then saw how the passenger mirror is basically useless with the doors on and was like, "Screw that!" so I never installed em. I'll probably end up just giving them away one of these days since nobody's been interested in buying them to try even at half price. lol

Question. So if ur in a hurry in the first place... Why would u be taking your doors off? Lol

And I bought the mirror relocation brackets... But I stripped the darn torx bolts on the windshield... Sooo plan B it is. Think I'm getting two long stem Harley mirrors... Judy windering if u can actually see anything since they seem small

I use the Harley mirrors and they help a little but not much. They just keep you from getting pulled over.
