New wheels and tires
 
After months of reading, reviewing thousands of photos, asking tons of questions(many thanks to Wolf:thumb:)....finally pulled the trigger on new wheels and tires! I also put in a TF levelling kit and man, I couldn't be happier.

I wanted 35's badly but had to come to a practical decision and go with 33's...the main factors that tipped the scale to 33's were that my wife and baby need to be able to get in, didn't want to spend $$$ on regearing/tire carrier/and other mods to properly run 35s, and this is a DD and will barely see any trails etc.

Went with 305/70/16 Duratracs on MB72 wheels. Honestly, the E rated tire is perfectly fine. I read stories about them being harsh and I don't notice much difference, but everyone is different.

Many thanks to DTD:punk:

Looks good.

I'm not a real fan of chrome on the Jeep, especially the grill, but I do like the way it contrasts and pops with the black.:punk:

Thanks! Yeah, I wasn't sure about the chrome grill but will keep it for now.
