I gotta ask, what is a whore light? If it attracts women of questionable moral fiber, perhaps I should install some? Although I'm sure the square I'm married too would disapprove.

I have 15x10 wheels but I want new ones and I'm debating in getting the same or if I should get 15x8s? Does anyone know if this will change the look or how far the tire will stick out?

Im sure it will if you got a 10" wheel with 4" backspacing there is 6" of wheel past the hub. On a 8" wheel with 4" backspacing you would have 2" less past the hub

I did them. Few very minor rough spots but overall I am very very happy with the result. Time to see how they hold up now

Then came the end where it became plowed. Except the only way to the plowed side was over the snow mound. Which didn't seem to bad. so I went to drive over it. It was going good. Till I created the nice hard packed top. And sunk into powder with my front tires and high centered.

I flattened/dug out alot of it. But it was all the height of the very leftmost tall mound.

Edit: The pic makes it look alot smaller than it was. It was about 3-4ft from the bottom to the top of the mound.

Its a smittybilt src rack. The front bolts on to both door hings and the back bolts on to the bumper. I am still able to slide the hard top right out the back. The basket is a rage powersports basket. I repainted it with the rustelum bed liner and bolted it directly to the src rack. I also removed the hand knobs on the rack and have it bolted directly on. The basket and rack support both my weight and my dogs weight when I go camping. The light bar fits snuggly under the basket and the rack, actually giving it more support. Ordered the brake lights for the rear bar I am making tonight so I will have to post pics of that.

I feel like I have had a very productive weekend...

I went out with the Jeep club... And they dragged me through some pretty hard tracks...
(I'm stock 31's... There all on 33's with 4"lifts)
Was a good day...

Got my self a wheel ramp to help clean under the truck... Much easier...

Got given a high lift...

wired my spots...

Removed the rubber things on the front of my bumper...

AND

Killed my 'key in' door chime... Fark that thing is annoying...
Also found out that if you turn (anti clockwise) the light switch, it turns on the foot well lights...

Think I might have also sold my laptop so I can get a lift...

I painted my Poison Spyder Rear Trail Corners. They were gloss black, and I wanted to de-shine them a little bit. I used Krylon Fusion Satin Black. I wanted them to match my fender flares, which I painted with Krylon Fusion Satin Black a while ago. I'll be installing them in a day or two.





In between coats of paint, I also installed some Pioneer 6.5" speakers in the speaker pods. Only $46 at Wally World, but they sound a lot better!!
