I like that stubby front bumper.

I need to tint my windows too. Anybody ever tint plastic windows?

I've seen plenty of jeeps with tinted soft top windows but they were bestop tops and i think they might have bought the top with time windows already tinted.

Can collapsing plastic windows be tinted after the fact? I would think the constant collapsing would cause the tint to release from the plastic or, at the very least, get scratched. Maybe not.

Yeah thats what I have to find out. I have to look into it. Maybe I can order just the windows already tinted or find some on craigslist.

My sailcloth top with tinted windows cost around $500 and is better than the mopar one, or keep a look on Craigslist people selling the tops all the time just have to ask them if they have the tinted ones

That stubby bumper with the tire looks kind of like mine from Durango4x4 Tire Carriers

I'm on my 3rd one now, had one for each jeep and will have one for the next ones too. Great quality, can open the tire carrier and stand on the end of the beam, with a 44" bogger and it hardly flexed.
Mounts everything to it ( make your own adapters to mount stuff and save a few grand )

Saw on summit 16x8 crager's for $49.97 a piece and was going to order them until I realized they were 6x5.5. The 5x4.5 in 16" are $75 so I will wait a little bit. Probably plasti dip the stockers on Thursday.

your rims aren't 5 on 4.5 they are 5 on 5 with 4.5 backspace... Unless they changed something mid year in production... But havn't heard of anything...

the sahara and rubicon rims don't look bad if you can find them cheap...

With as much running in the rocks and unknown that I do , I just stick with the cheap steel wheels. Picked up the last set of 5 for $225 at 4wp... Think they are rock krawler ? by pro comp.. They work handle some decent abuse ...
My factory aluminum ones finally had too much rock rash and wouldn't hold a bead below 20 psi anymore...

I'll have to look. I thought I saw 5x4.5 somewhere. I don't remember now.

Rubi wheels are crazy overpriced on Craigslist out here which is why I'm not going with them. And I like the look of black wheels on this color. I just want something cheap an black for now and then when I lift it or further down the road I will get some better ones.

Yeah I just checked all JK are still 5 x 5 with 4.5 bs.... .Only difference is the 16 , 17 or 18" rim... Some sites are still full of crap on their measurements...

I can pick up rubi rims with the stock tire less than 1k miles for around $500 a set here. The shipping would suck though...

5 on 5" cragars look good on them and I would look at treadwrights for tires.

16.5's aren't worth it , its one of the sizes that's being canned... Started it a few years ago and there are less and less manufctured for them...

May want to keep the stock set just to use for troubleshooting the deathwobble from lifting ...

With as many double beadlocks and tires that get pushed out by TWF and others 16.5's will not die in offroad tires for a long long time.

Not buying tires until these are done. So probably next year at least.

That will come when the lift comes. But that won't happen until I need tires and that will be after these bite the dust. So thats why I just want a cheap set of black rims for now.

I'm afraid a stock Jeep will only do the opposite.
