Thanks. I really did spend hours reading threads and opinions..I love these AEV wheels in matte black, Duratracs are clearly a Jeep fan favorite and 33" for 95% road driving is perfect. the 2" lift is not extreme, my wife and kids can still pile in but it's a definite bad-ass improvement. I hope this helps anyone else doing research as I did.

I was originally considering Pintlers, but the Savegres have been growing on me. I like them more and more with each install that I see. It seems that everyone has Pintlers. Now I just need to decide between argent and matte black for a Billet vehicle. I had my bumpers powdercoated to match the grey in the stock Rubicon wheels...so the argent might be a good choice...but I do like that matte black look.
I don't like them. Infact so much so, i would be willing to come trade you my stock wheels and tires next week as soon as my Jeep comes in. Since we are both in CT it should be easy to meet up and swap them.
