Thanks! The funny thing is I'm kind of doing the same thing once I sell my 85 xj I will be-able to get the rest of the evo stuff like tire carrier and so on I want but sadly I will have to wait on the lift.

Thanks! Yea I would have to agree I love the older look and hope they never get rid of them, but if they do I'll settle for the new version that is if these ever burn out.

Ray it was very cool to meet you today, even if it was for such a short time. I was in a rush if you couldn't tell, trying to get my work scheduled on my rig and get a ride to my hotel with Mel :icon_crazy: Your JK looked badass man! Nice upgrades and you got the best too. The hood sticker was the icing on the cake brother. Keep saving and building up that orange beast. Hope to wheel with you soon.

When we put on our stinger, the first thing my wife said to me is "Its so much easier to drive now!" I was confused and asked how? She said " no one cuts me off, pulls out infront of me, and I can start coming over and they MOVE out the WAY!" She can't waite till we get the rear tire carrier. then people might stop tail gating. :D

Love the color of your JKU. It looks great. Good job so far. :rock:

College students are always busy. I have 4 test next week that i need to study for like crazy well only about 3, because one is pretty easy. Thank the person who invented a financial calculator! :wings: But i understand how busy it is from one student to another. Anyways pics look great even with the sun still out they are pretty bright. Any idea of how the package looked? if not i'll just go by and look at all the lights there.

JKRay
10-11-2012, 02:33 PM

Look real clean Ray. Good job.

I asked about this in another thread, but since you just painted, I'll ask you too. What paint did you use to paint the wells. Did you prime before or just go with the black?

Thanks! I used flat black spray paint I bought from ORiley's. I first sanded the paint to get it good and scratched up to give the primer something to stick to, then primed then painted took about 45 minutes to complete.

Can't tell from discussion, did you cut your stock flares, or buy flat style? Love your jeep, already has a RUBIcat feel to it. Keep the mods coming.

Youre welcome. Thinking of cutting my flares too so i was curious. I've painted my fender wells too, over time gravel might sling up and chip the paint. Just thought I'd give you a heads up for the future of your wheel wells.

I was figuring that may happen but that's the good thing about painting it, it's cheap haha thanks for the heads up

Awesome rig and I really like those tires but they don't have them in a 265/75/R16 or 285/75/R16 that I'd want :( They have a baby 245/75/R16 and then a monsterous 305/70/R16...the 305 would be too wide to fit on my steelies so I'd have to go up to a 17" rim for better sizes. I know you have the 17" MOAB style Jeep rims, what size did you go with? The 285's or the 35x12.50? If I can pick up a cheapo set of those rims around me in Texas I'd go for the 285/75/R17s tire for sure!

Thanks! I went with the 35x12.50 inch tires I love the tires but don't like how they are a pain in the butt to balance so I won't be getting them again for that reason. On the rims you should be able to find them on Craigslist or here pretty cheap.

They take way too many weights to get them balanced and at higher speeds tend to shimmy but it could just be my tires. Other than that I love them.
