    I agree. My original plan was black wheels (I like black with lighter colored rigs, lighter wheels with darker colored), but the Ravines definitely grew on me. They're in really good shape, so why not spend the money elsewhere!

    I don't doubt that for a second!

    Thanks @UpperMI
    I'm seeing that already. Seems to be a bunch of good people in general on here.

    Killer looking Sport, congratulations, especially with those miles! Let me help you spend your $$...that TJ, with those wheels, is begging for a 2" spring lift and some 32" tires. That'll get you over most anything. Not a big fan of the chrome nerf bars, though. Mine had those, they were the first to go. But if you like 'em, carry on!

    Your assessment of the forum is exactly right. Best one by far.

    Thanks @glwood I couldn't pass her up when I saw the mileage. I read your "Bumper finish" thread a couple weeks ago and I'm pulling the trigger on DirtWorx front and rear bumpers tomorrow, so honestly you've already helped me lighten my wallet a bit...thanks a lot!It's funny, I have a build list I'm gonna post tomorrow for comments and advice, and a 2.5" lift and 32s are already on it. As are replacements for the nerf bars (they were installed by PO). I don't care for them either, but the wifey uses them to climb aboard so they'll stay till I replace them. But I would say we have similar tastes when it comes to our TJs.

    Good to hear! I have the Body Armor side rails, easy to install, look good, provide decent protection IMO, and my wife uses those for entry also. What really helps her the most, though, are the GraBars. Check those out.

    Thanks for the links @glwood I've already installed Grabars and have Grabar footpegs. I was leaning toward AtoZ Fab rocker guards w/tube steps, but I'm not 100% on those yet. I'll check out the Body Armor rails for sure.

    And yes @lowranger, yes he is!:)I see already that this crew is very "helpful" that way!

    I got it! He needs to buy one of these. So when we go over and watch him put all those cool parts on his Jeep, we'll have something to eat. Jeep BBQ.png

    Ok, we'll let the smoke clear from your wallet for now, but we can be impatient when we don't see progress, so no dilly dallying mister. Lol!

    Much appreciated...I just heard a BIG, audible sigh of relief from my back pocket...coworkers probably thought it was something else entirely! :eek::risas3:
