Yeah, I know spray painting a 2 week old car is commitment.

Lift/suspension, wheels, tires, skids plates, and bumpers all on order! bounce

That is pretty much what mine will look like. Well minus those gay wheels. I am getting a stubby bumper and a plate/tube hybrid rear bumper. Parts (except lifts) for Jeeps are CHEAP!

I think the winch is mainly used for pulling the drug bundles out of the water when they have to ditch them in a chase.
Or maybe when the convenient store is all locked up and them need to get in....

GY MTRs I made this decision based off our local tire tester's feedback. I mean if he has kept them for 4 months, than they have to be a decent tire. They are pricey though.

Oh - I did also get a $100 Visa card for the tires, so figure $285/ea.

Tyler - Did you steal them? Smile

Are the 35x12.50's much cheaper?

Maybe yours use Trojan condoms instead of Kevlar?

I bought mine when they first came out. Before all tire prices shot up. And the 15" wheels help a little bit.

Just about everything came in today! My driveway looked like underneath a Christmas tree when I got home. bounce

I installed the front bash plate and wired the winch (and it actually works). I have been unbelievably busy, so I didn't hunt down the camera. I will try to take some pictures this weekend.
