    Don't think that hasn't crossed my mind.

    Nice wheels! I dig both colors but theres something about the Chestnut that reminds me of a classic CJ.

    Got the new 15x12 wheels mounted up and this time put the black walls out. I had spun one tire/wheel around and put it next to another and noticed not only did I like the look a bit better, but the black wall gave the illusion that the tire was bigger than the other one. So that's the way I went. I used the center caps from the old wheels and they worked perfectly.

    Also, I had ordered the bumper hoop from Rock Hard and it came in on Friday. I didn't order it with the bumper originally because I wasn't sure if I wanted do that, being that my last two Jeep had hoops. Ever since, the bumper has just looked like it needed it, and it'll give the future winch some level of protection from brush.

    I think these were good additions and I really like the way tires look on the wheels as much as the wheels themselves. They stick out just the right amount for my tastes. About as much as a 10 inch wheel on a TJ. Overall I am pleased with the direction it's going.

    Looking good ...I do like the blue with the chrome wheels...but here's another thought; my buddy many years ago had a brilliant metallic lime green CJ5...I never cared for the color on any other vehicle, but on his Jeep it looked great

    I’d think hard about keeping it the color it came, but that other blue is fine looking.

    It seems the suggestions on color are split pretty evenly between the blue and the brown. With one vote for green.
    Funny thing is there was a Golden Eagle that came in green. It did make me at least consider going with green metallic.
    I wonder how it would look in the new Mojito green from the JL line? It would be different, and probably awesome.
    Now I have three colors to choose from.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
