parted with some $, couldn't wait to show it off

I started on my jeep personalization today and pulled the trigger when I saw these rims. After 100 or so miles, I LOVE the Duratracs too! Had to hose off a week's worth of road salt, but I'm really excited and had to show them off. Now when it gets a touch warmer here in Ohio, I'll take off the side steps and put on the replacement ones I bought last week. Opinions are definitely welcomed, since I got nearly all my info from this forum! Thanks all!

what did you end up doing as a replacement step?

Hopefully sliders otherwise the mod bug will eventually make you purchase those anyway lol...

Sorry, should have specified: they're 31" Duratracs, 15x8 MB TKO wheels, (obviously I've got no suspension mods), and the side steps are Mopar rock rails I bought from a forum member

Ahem...nice spare tire cover....traitor!

Actually...I was rooting for Wisconsin last year...normally an OSU fan, but the whole scandal with Tressel pissed me off. Whereabouts in Ohio are you?

Nice wheels btw... pick yourself up some PlastiDip/spray on bedliner/black paint and paint those chrome headlight rings now.

Good Looking !

I like the simplicity - a real Jeep look - but I agree, black out those headlight rims !

I agree wholeheartedly about the headlight bezels....gotta get that done soon. As for the tire cover, I had to flip a coin between a big red W and Bucky....surprising how many comments a guy can get living in Buckeye country! ON WISCONSIN!!

I'd definitely rather see a big red W than a big yellow M...lol

Finally took advantage of the mildly nice weather in NW Ohio yesterday and today and installed my Mopar rock rails. I was somewhat nervous about drilling holes, but just took a deep breath and did it. I also blacked out the headlight rings, and think it's coming along pretty well. After buying a can of Rustoleum bedliner spray, I've made a list of accent/repair spots I'm going to tackle when it gets warm for good! I HAD to get the rock rails on though, to heck with winter weather- I'm going to work on my Jeep! Oh, and for the record, I'm an Ohio TRANSPLANT, not a native, that's why the Bucky tire cover.....

So many people are saying they love their DuraTracs. I'm included!
At this point BFG ATs have got to be dropping in sales.
Maybe BFG will come out with something new in AT?
