I agree with you here. But I go further than that. Anything added to the outside of a factory stock Wrangler looks gaudy to me and detracts to the rugged look of a Wrangler. This includes a tire cover, side steps, lights, anything. Bought my Wrangler used and it came with mounted side steps. I would remove these in a minute but my wife would scream bloody murder if I did. So I'll just have to live with them. But everyone should do whatever they like to their Wrangler. It's their vehicle. It's just that I wouldn't do any of it. I purchased a RAM 1500 Tradesman instead of the sport model which came with chrome, for the very same reason I wouldn't add anything to the outside of a Wrangler. Inside, a whole different story. I plan on adding a few amenities, but nothing for looks. Only things for functional purposes.Not me. I like the look of the wheel and tire without cover.
