Sell them on Craigslist to fund a bigger set of Craigslist, that's what I did. Got $400 for all 5 stock canyon rims with 4 brand new tires and the factory spare that was produced in 1999. Then I bought a set of JK rubicon rims off a daddy's boy with brand new BFG A/Ts with a full size BFG M/T spare for $800 then I spent $100ish on adapters/spacers.

When you have that sense of accomplishment for picking the right girl friend when she ask you "for my birthday, can we go trailing and mudding with the top and doors off?"

When youre dying from laughter stopped at a red light and the people are looking at you like youre crazy cause its piss pouring rain and you have no top or doors....lol the good (Jeep) life

im new and ive only had my jeep for a little over a month and shes bone stock....ive been off roading more than my friend that has 35s and a 4" lift and had it for 3 years

I've got a 4" suspension lift with 33 x 12.5 with stock gears and got 20.4 today running interstate at 60. But, typically get 15 running around town with a light foot; 12-13 when sporting. I don't want talk about trail riding mpg.

When you get flashed 5 or 6 in a night with others brights cause they think your brights are on.
Anyone else notice that their stock bulbs are extremely bright. My bud driveing in front of me said they were.

If your jeep is lifted, you may want to adjust your lights down. Used to happen to me till I did that.

I wouldn't worry about pointing down.
Point them a little off center towards the shoulder.

Well it's just courteous to other drivers to at least aim them down. I got lenses that block the light from the oncoming traffic.

I don't know what kind of "stock bulbs" came with your Jeep, but the stock sealed beams on my 03 were the worst headlights I had ever driven with. I think a pair of coach lanterns would have given more light! I finally tossed them last year and installed the KC H4 replacements.
