such a great color, makes me wish I had waited another year. I am sure you will have no problem finding a wheel that will look great.

You've probably already seen it in the Mojave Sand thread, but here's mine with "the combo".
33" Duratracs and 15" Level 8 Trackers.

That looks great. My old wheels were 17". Your pics make me want to consider the 15"s

I saw your other thread about your wheels. Can't you just have them refurbished?

Is that on stock suspension?

Yep, that's stock Sport suspension (with the max tow package, I think the spring rates were 17 front 58 rear, so near the max stiffness from the factory).

I measured in my garage and there is about 1" of rake from the front of the pinch seam to rear of the pinch seam. I'm considering getting a 1" spacer for the front to level it out but I don't look at it and see tons of rake like I do with some factory Unlimiteds.

This is my first Jeep and first set of wheels and tires so my sample size is very limited, but the alloy wheel and large sidewall with the 15" wheel, combined with the Duratracs really ride great. I was worried they'd be loud and bouncy but they're great. Smooth and quiet like the factory tires, but obviously better looking and performing.

Haha - must have been in the air today. I also put on my reflective black flags from Pixel Decals. Still not sure if I prefer them on the cowl or down low where I put them.




I also ordered 2 other stickers in their Light Sand and Dark Sand colors trying to see what would compliment Mojave Sand the best for a future hood decal.


The light sand looks pretty good, but I think black or a charcoal gray is still the way to go on Mojave probably.

I have wheel spacers, grill inserts, grabars, and rigid dualy's on the pillars. Cut off the rear third brake light and made my own. Put 1 inch pucks up front to level her out. Bigger tires are next.

Good stuff. I just installed some Grabars as well. That vertical bolt and spacer is a little funny. There is a thread somewhere on folks experiencing some issues with the install. Send in pics when you get them in !

Thank you. Did you see grill inserts for Mohave ? Black or silver ?

Looks like you got silver? Accents nicely with the other trim.
I went with the Red Rock grille screen. Black.
