No forgiveness necessary, we all started in the same place.

I would say go with the black. If you check the TJ pic threads, you will see several dark Wranglers with them. They look great on the dark green.

Personally I would stay away from the "Authority", but the Goodyear Duratrac is an awesome tire IMO

Definitely not tubes!

Remember that this is just my opinion and I could be wrong It comes down to doing what you want. That is the beauty of the Wrangler, every one is an individual. So make it your own.

Just ordered that bumper. Its my Christmas present from my gfs mom. They say I'm hard to shop for but its a myth. I'll try to put up some pics when I get it up on and everything.

Scoutandchief, just wanted to give you some feedback. I have the smittybuilt front bumper that Dwfoulk1s posted a link to. Honestly I ABSOLUTELY LOOOVVVE this bumper. It is completely durable and I am being honest when I say I have plowed over trees about 3 inches thick with it, and other than the tree leaving marks on the bumper, no damage what so ever. It is great for mounting lights on as well as I have 6 total mounted on it. I would highly recommend it!
