Street Clean

So I bought my 2012 JKU a few weeks ago and honestly aside from the occasional beach trips and muddy job sites I encounter from time to time, I doubt I'll be doing any major off roading.... So a lift and huge mud boggers arent really in my future...... but I did see a Wrangler that caught my eye.... Its the project kahn wrangler..... I think its done in good taste.... Looks clean and not gaudy..... Now I know these Jeeps are off road beasts but i dont think they are only built for the offroad anymore than a Vette is only built for the track......That being said I wanted to get some opinions and suggestions on this look..... Has anyone seen anything similar to it?

Debadged w/ ugly street tires/wheels.

Other than that it's stock.

Looks like the Euro jeep. Tell by the bumper on the front.

Didn't they know they need small wheels with big tires, not the other way around?

Welcome to the forum, enjoy you new jeep.

Does it look nice? I dunno, I can see someone thinking it does. I can't help but think that more than anything, though, the look just misses the point.

Do not like it at all. That is a great look on a Toyota Supra for back in the day, but totally falls short on a Jeep. But hey, to each their own.

You probably won't get much love from predominately off-road jeep owners, but to each their own. If that's the style and purpose you are going for, I think it looks pretty sharp.

Enjoy it how you want to!

I'm not a fan of those wheels, but the overall color and such is very nice....

Tire selection gets rather limited when you run 20" wheels too, Wranglers just look and drive better with smaller wheels and more rubber....IMHO

look nice but why buy a Jeep if you are only going to slap street wheels and tires on it?

Because I like the versatility and the look..... I can put what ever wheels I want on it, take the tops off and ride down to the beach in a great looking ride and not have any worries.
Right?

I think they took it a step more and lowered it.
