Commando green does not photograph well, but I stopped by and looked at some in person a few weeks back and actually really liked them. What is the deal with the Red letters? Do they come that way?

Smooth and quiet, already been through a tank. Only lost around 1.2 mpg. We'll see how they do.

Love the red letters on them but mine wears off a little more each time I go wheeling. What psi are you running yours at?

Found good use of my stock tires and wheels, They work great on my Wife's 2011 GC. It has a leveling kit on it and they Rubicon tires and wheels fit great with no rubbing.

I installed my rugged ridge XHD bumper and Warn x8000i winch this weekend. Install was very straight forward and I am very impressed with the fit and finish of the rugged ridge product. I got in on the Amaxon $200 price error on the bumper so I couldn't go wrong.
The Warn winch was a left over from my last TJ. Its been sitting in my shed for the past 9 years. Works great and looks like the day I got it.

Now, How to customize the bumper? Leave it plain or add the Rugged ridge add-on bars, ends or maybe even a stinger?

Didn't go to the trails in the back, it seemed ok. I didn't even think about it. We'll see on those tight trails in Citrus.
