Hi all,
Would really appreciate some guidance. I am a relatively new JK Unlimited owner having bought the Jeep in Aug 2011. I am at the stage now where I would love to start modifying the Jeep. I would like to start by adding some wheels and tires along the lines of the BF Goodrich All Terrain type. The jeep is currently a factory standard 08 JK Sahara Unlimited and I wondered:
1, What size should I get (I want the off road look)
2, Would I need to get spacers or get the Jeep lifted (I plan to get it lifted as the next thing I want to do)
3, If I removed the front bumper and back bumper to put a tube bumper on like the quadratec ones - is this possible on Euro spec Jeeps? I think I read somewhere that it causes a problem with the lights??
4, Where or where can I get tires and wheels? I have looked everywhere ebay, outbackautomotives etc and must not be looking in the correct place!!:(
5, Does anyone know of a place preferably in South Wales or close that can carry out work on a Wrangler - lifts etc??
Sorry for the huge amount of questions any response / help would be greatly appreciated!!!
Thanks for your time.....
Matt

Hiya matt,
Sorry for a lack of response I've not checked out this part of the Forum for a few weeks.
I had BFG all terrains on my 2009 JK if I remember they were 265/75R17 they looked good, with them on there is no need for spacers or lifts.
No to sure about the tube style bumper but have seen UK JK's with the XHD style bumper fitted, for wheels or any jeep accessories have a look at G-Force autos in Halifax, 4playjeep in Leicester or jeepey mart if you google them all they should come up, not heard of a jeep specialist in South Wales but you could try Devon 4x4, 4playjeep in Leicester or FTE 4x4 in wickford Essex they all do Jeep modifications.
Hope that helps.

Hi, want to make an impression, get a Reptile fastback hardtop from a company called "360掳"(Based in the south of france I think).
Fits straight on the wrangler unlimited and changes everything. I think they're the only company in europe that makes them.

Hiya Matt,
Cool South Wales got a (Rare) Red weather warning for bad snow, and that's why god invented Jeep wranglers enjoy the empty snow covered roads, I'm on my way down to South Wales. :dance:
