    Welcome....Nice cool Willys to start your adventure! The aftermarket support for the JK is HUGE. The mods can start from small/large interior/exterior accessories all the way up to the big ones (lockers/lifts) etc. Take your time, ask lots of questions, read and search and target your choice and watch the budget. Admittedly it can be an addiction (somewhat better than gambling) LoL

    I did a little research on this Jeep for you. It was built by Starwood Motors and 1 of 2 entered by them in the 2014 SEMA show. The wheels I believe are KMC XD series 831s, or they could be the KMC 403 chopstix. Probably 20x12 or 22X12 the tires look like NITTOS. Smitty built body armor and VPR 4x4 bumpers.

    Thanks man!! I finally found them thanks for your help. They are the KMC XD403 Chopsticks. Just sent in a price quote. Again I am new to the Jeep world. Finally was able to get what I wanted. Just ordered some 1.5 spacers just to get me by for the mean time. I want that wider stance. Just don't like how the factory has them so far in the wheel wells.
