I had originally sold my push bar to help pay for the 04 edge grill and header panel I wanted but Im to damn picky and didnt want aftermarket and couldnt find a set and then saw this pushbar on craigslist for wicked cheap so I jumped on it.

Looks great Jazz! Now make sure to keep a coat of wax on them, makes cleaning them heck of a lot easier.

To bad 2 of them are already ruined!!! Went to a local car wash, the type where it gets pushed through and cleaned and tehy dry it off at the other end and before the truck was even wet the guy spraid acid on the drivers side wheels. They tried to clean them with Mothers but they still look like *** compared to the passenger side. They want to try polishing them again on Monday after they get a different kind of wax but I told them that unless they can make them look just as good as the passenger side wheels then I want two new ones!

yeah no way they will make them like new.

btw when you wash it, make sure you dry them with a towel right away it will make them stay clean for a long time.

Well, the car wash's insurance company is going to pay out for the two wheels they damaged. Insurer had me go to someone local for a quote witch ended up being about $150 more than I paid for the wheels and mounting and balancing so LOL, err in my favor LOL.

Im not sure on tires. The ones I have do still ave some life left so Im looking around to see what I like best but so far Mickey Thompson Baja and Cooper Discoverer STT look really good. Also looking at Pro Comp and a few others.
