Your good. They indeed are the 07-12 rubicon wheels, they are 17" and I also do have the adapter plate which also acts as a 1.25" spacer. They still rub on the LCA at full lock but it isn't to bad. They are 275/70/r17 BFG A/Ts which comes out to like a 32.5x10.5.

I agree, I didn't fully realize how bad it looked without the backs, until I took the fronts off too. I'm really glad I have them back on.

So heres pics of the top installed on my jeep

Thanks! I have never been able to find out what kind of bumper this is. The light is a 50" MicTuning from Amazon, yeah i know, i cant justify 1600 for a light ill hardly use. It works great though, and the real measurements are about 48". I'll post a night shot as soon as it gets dark enough here.

The only time ive ever been upset that daylight savings time moved sunset up an hour! Haha

NIGHT SHOTS!!! in order, these are my headlights(dim then brights), my flood lights, and last is my spot bar.
These are all brighter than they look. I can drive by my flood lights alone, in real life, they shine about as far as my dim lights in this video.
These are screenshots from a video, I will post it once I can upload it, I had some trouble earlier... Go figure... :] enjoy!!!
