BlackOps Jeep, your Jeep looks totally awesome. Where/how did you get paint done and how much did it cost?

Also, love the Pizza Cutter Tires. Have 235/85/16 Duratracs on the way myself.

Even still, you can utilize the American flag and go a tactical look without military stickers.

Thanks. I actually used Plastidip, about 14 cans. If I ever decide I don't want it on anymore, I can just peel it off. It's like rubber. Cost is about $6/can so do the math. As for my tires, they are P265/75/17R's which works out to about 33" (32.8 to be exact). I do plan on going to 35's later this summer too. Probably with beadlockers as well.

I think plastidip might hold up better there than it did on my wheels. Flex and what not seems to strip it off the edge of the rims. I'm getting aftermarket MB72s in a week.

Do What You Want

I have a 2013 JKU Oscar/Mike Jeep. I happen not to like the big decal and the smaller one that came with it. I took them off (by the way, the big one is not easy to take off even with it heated. I had to use acetone to get off the residue). I like all the other stuff the Oscar/Mike came with. Now if people see my Jeep and it still has the Officail Oscar/Mike placard on the side, do they say "that's not an Oscar/Mike Edition?" Who cares. I did what I like - do the same for your Jeep.

Using the military phonetic alphabet, using the letters OM or Oscar Mike, is code for On the Move or On a Mission.

In this case it's the name of the Jeep 2013 Freedom Edition Wrangler.

I only used Charlie Mike.........It Means Continue Mission. Usually said after an interruption or hiccup in whatever you're doing. This phrase is derived using the phonetic alphabet (Military Alphabet). Instead of saying Continue Mission, Charlie Mike is said instead so everyone over the radio can understand and know what you mean.

I entered my Jeep in a local car show yesterday and as I was leaving a salesman from the Jeep dealership handed me an Oscar Mike hat.

Well . . .




I won.




In the Rock Crawler/4WD/Jeep category, there was an absolutely immaculate 1980 CJ-5 that was totally awsome that should have gotten the award but for some reason they gave it to me.

I didn't do anything special to it, besides washing it.

All the proceeds of the event went to the United Way so I figured the entry fee was going to a good cause.

I sure didn't expect to win.

(Can you tell the event was sponsored by Catapillar?)

Where the heck can i get one of those? I am in the military and have not seen one of these things yet, but I want. I am partial to my TJ, but for one of those, i might be convinced to join you guys on the JK side.
