There's something you dont see every day. What size tires/wheels are they? Always fun putting on new wheels & tires. Thanks for sharing, Enjoy!!

You are too kind. My TJ had to spend the night at the tire shop while we wait for my wheels to get powdercoated. They had it on the wrong lift and no way to move it so on went these things. I drove up to drop the tires off and saw her all embarrassed parked where everyone could see with this setup. It made me laugh and I had to post the pics. Made for a great photo op right? I hope it looks a little better when I pick it up tomorrow :)

Hey, Jeeps are fun to mod the way YOU want. If we all had the same taste it would be boring. Can't wait to see what you end up with!

Here's a better picture of it.

If you look close you can almost see some blushing on her cheeks.

Pimp, thats probably the best way to describe the look. That said we decided in the end to go another direction. I think she looks a little better now. With the new tires, and wheels powdercoated I can finish getting ready for the paint job. Thanks for the comments.
