The first thing that I thought was I like the color and then read on down and seems to be everyone elses thoughts as well.It is a lot like the sunburst orange that I didn't like at first but now that it has been out a while now I really do like those colors now.It is sharp!

^^ Mustank owners, what can you say? If they had any style they would own one.

Anyway, I like that front guard! Does that just bolt onto the front bumper after some drilling?

The grill gaurd bolted right to the winch plate. I thought I was going to do some welding, but Warn made it for the plate.

The coupe is my storage shed right now. "stock" 5 liter, Tremec 5 speed, 4.11 gears. Can't find coupes anymore.

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

Im not sure about the bs. They are MT Classic II's. I got the gaurd from 4wd.com. Bolted up in 5 minutes.

I'm thinking about ordering the beadlock rings for the tires. Nice or too cheesy?

I do like them, but not sure if I want them. Kind of pricey for something that is useless.

if you like the look of beadlocks, buy some real badlocks.

yes. IMO a full size spare tire is more important than faked beadlocks.

yup.

question. I never had any wobbles with my 32's and now with the 33's, I have a wobble at from 40-45 mph. Took it to the shop, did alignment and it still wobbles. Guy there told me they used weights for steel wheels and that I should re balance the tires. Speeds over 45 are fine. I don't want weights on the outside of the rim, but they told me thats a true balance. Should I live with the wobble, or bite the bullet and have them re balanced hoping that it helps?

@orange05tj:

does the steering wheel shake at 40-45 mph? that sounds like unbalanced tires.
try to put th rear tires on the front. perhaps they are balanced better.


@bpowa:

hey stop...!
i have a ruNICOn sticker on my hood...

i had also hat that after i was wheeling some weeks ago. there was to much mud on the inside of the rims. the whole front shaked at 35-45 mph that much that i was afraid that something could become damaged.

The shake sounds like a wheel balance problem. Look for a place that has a Hunter Road Force wheel balancer in your area. I hate to say it but the guy is right. You will get a much better balance with a kind of weight that attach to the rim on both sides instead of the kind are stickied to inside only. However this does not mean you cant get it balanced out with the sticky ones, it will just be harder on the tire "tech".

doesn't have the sticky weights. They are attached to the rims. I hate the sticky ones, they always fall off.

No its not. With a GOOD balance machine you can get it very well balanced with only inside sticky wieghts.
