I think he was talking about the guy that posted about selling his jeep. The post is now deleted.

[QUOTE=yeller03tj;3347711]Like I said. I apologize. But if you look at it from my view......


haha...that is some really bad timing. If you didn't know about the deleted post, it would have fit perfectly.

As far as the OROs, they were pretty sweet, honestly if I had a black jeep i might have kept them, but decided to go for a more red traditional style. Kinda felt like with my jeep being the color of dirt, when the litedots got dirty and the sunlight....I didn't feel real comfy.

b4


after


with the turn signal on


The license plate & liteplate light from oro are mounted on a hitch mount and wired the light to a 4 prong trailer plug so I can unplug & remove if i need to use the hitch.

Another productive day! Removed third brake light, flush mounted the license plate, installed 5 Alcoa aluminum rims, put 2 duratracs in the rear and the other 3 are old style MTRs. Also adjusted the t case shifter linkage so it would work with the t case drop.... Then promptly took it out, stuck it in 4 low and crawled up the side of a dirt pile to the point of nearly falling on its side!

The picture is with my old ATs. Was as far as I could climb up it but the new tires allowed me to drive up and over that side.

Also got stuck on a snowpile in the cabelas parking lot today... Next time I post in this thread it'll be about a tummy tuck... Put the girl in the front seat, put her in reverse and I pushed the jeep off. With the hell of a Dozer JKU driver who couldn't get enough of it.... Said he was renting the jeep....

Mine were Procomp LT305/60R18 Xtreme M/T tires. They were just rough, looked good, but for a daily driver they weren't doing me anygood.

I agree, maybe all the XJs and ZJs on JF throw the ratio off mentally

Well the real problem is that green is the best color.

I didn't do them myself. Anything electrical that needs to be run to the cabin, I prefer to have professionally done. They are fixed.

Ever thought of flush mounting the tail lights? It's a cheap and easy mod. I did it. The lights were like 20 bux.
