Rubicon #1

Stripped and sent to the paint shop where they will strip down to a shell and have it back hopefully in a few weeks! Heres the current pics, I like it better stripped, just add some 37's and call it good!

Rubicon #2 still waiting for parts..

The 20 inch wheels don't look good in my opinion - too ghetto - not 4x4 enough if you know what I mean.

I think those wheels actually look pretty cool, look better with 37's on um tho. :grinpimp:

Can't wait to see it flat black, I have talked about doing that to my jeep, or going nato green.

I agree about the tire/wheelcombo..I didn't pick them out. They did turn out much better than I thought they would and there is plenty of sidewall for trail running, just not real rocky AZ trail running! I think 35's would have been perfect.

Bushwacker JK fenders? Those things are terrible to install. Took me like 7 hours the first time and I vowed to never do it again.

Also, loctite the bolts, I lost 3 or 4 on the drive to SEMA
We have installed many have it down to a science:laughing:

Checked on the Jeep today painting should be all done and reassembly begins thurs and Friday, Maybe I will sneek in some picks!!

No, they repainted the jeep flat black and then hit it with a clearcoat to protect the finish.

I like the flat black one. I might suggest painting the exhaust black as well as the door locks. Man I wish I could justify the Hemi swap. Nice build.
