Do NOT "rough up the finish". There's a protective coating on all aluminum wheels; if you remove it, the aluminum can oxidize (ask me how I learned the hard way...)

As already noted, all you need...

Look at the tire carrier carefully. It could have cracks in it and, if so, should definitely be replaced. You should be able to find them cheap from someone who has upgraded; OEM is some ridiculous...

Yes, of course; they both have breather tubes. Same process for both. And both breather tubes can be extended if water crossings are in your jeeping future.

I have the Mopar and, like everyone else who's posted, like the look.
But it's surprising how much dust and mud still gets in there around the cap; wish is was better sealed.

I think it highly unlikely that your spring is bent. Springs flex but they shouldn't bend; otherwise they wouldn't be springs. Take the spring out and look at it from every angle. Lay it flat and...

You can also mount it on the front side of the license plate holder with a $13 mount and a 3' firestik clears the top by only a few inches. It makes running the coax easier, too. Reception is fine...

After every trip I use a leaf blower to blow out the inside of my JKUR hardtop. Works pretty well as long as you remove small, light items.

I also plan to go with the 255x80/17 km2 once I burn the stock tires down some more.

You can buy individual Teraflex coil spacers in 1/2" and 1" thicknesses if you wanted minimal lift. The 4WD.com site has them.

Of course you'd have to give up some of the bad MB habits that such drivers always seem to have; cutting people off, changing lanes without blinkers, tailgating, driving solo in carpool lanes, etc.
