Gettin' my JK back today!

I had to head out of town for a few days so I finally had a chance to get new tires on the JK. I ended up going with 33" BFG ATs and since I went with a larger tire, I needed to get at LEAST a 2.5" TF BB. And if I was going to do that, I would at LEAST need to get 1.25" wheel spacers. And if I was going to do that, why not just pick up some wheels and sell my Rubi wheels?

So, Jeepers Den finished it up and I get it back today! 2.5" RE BB, 33" BFG ATs and American Eagle Series 063, Matte Black wheels.

Thanks and yes, I skipped the spacers. I haven't sat down and done the math but if I can sell my OEM wheels and spare, I can make up a lot of the difference between buying spacers vs. selling the OEM and applying that towards the new wheels. Plus, the new wheels are sick!
