Finally - New Wheels & Antenna
 
My new wheels finally came in and I also changed out my OEM antenna. I'm pretty stoked. Thought I would share a few pics.

Thanks guys. New rock rails with side steps are next along with new F/R bumpers, bug shield and seat covers. The MOD bug has struck my pocket book...LOL.

Antenna X?

Looking good OP ;)

Bought it while I was in Dallas at the 4 Wheel Parts store. I believe it was the "Big Stick" antenna. Here's the link to get it online. I got the 15in version.

AllSales Manufacturing Part 4215K - Big Stick; Antenna

nice! looks great.

I like the short black antennaes. I got one of the 14 inch antennex for my 12 Sahara. First day there were sunspots and I didnt think it would work, but now its as good as the original. I didnt like the long silver look.

ESP 03-18-2012 05:43 PM

Really nice choice of wheels. Very classy.

Sueby 03-18-2012 05:53 PM

I really like those wheels. :thumb: Looks sweet.

Same here. Preferred the shorter black antenna's as well. Mine is a 15in though. So far so good on picking up radio stations.

does the 0 offset align the tires better with the fenders? Love the look of you Jeep

The tires stick out around an inch or so past the vendor flares. My wheel's 0 offset gives me a 5 backspace. Stock wheels are around 6.50 BS.

Sweet ride... Are your tires stock Rubi?

If so very nice fit!

M0wens, would you mind taking a pic of the tire fender alignment?
