    Nice Madscotsman. Any plans for mods? Always thought they looked nice with a 2 inch lift. And I like BFGs TKOs with RWLs for some reason look sweet. But than again, I'm a 60s 70s muscle car guy. Always liked RWLs..

    My plans for mods are a Westin Safari bar for my Bosch Rally lights and an LED lightbar, Flowmaster, K&N intake and a modest lift. Thank you all for the kind responses! And JKBob, I, too am a child of the '70's, so I dig old muscle cars.

    Awesome. Theres just something about RWLs on certain vechiles.
    My Bosses daughter has a 90 YJ 4 inch lift with 35 BFGs w/ RWLs.. it works really nice with that jeep. Personal opinion. I think they would work with your jeep.

    I agree JKBob. On the right vehicle white side out is a good look. The YJ I'm almost finished with I've decided to go WSO on the tires.

    So true. Theres just certain vehicles that the tire helps make the car.
    Could you see an Olds 442 with black walls. Hell no. 70 Chevy Camaro or a Firebird. Charger, Challenger or aCuda of the 70s. With black walls. It's the same with Jeeps in my opinion. CJS, YJS and TJs. With the right build. Look really sweet with RWLs. It's the Era. Raised white letters were like adding a little shine to your vehicle. It made it pop.

    Back to Jeffs jeep. Again, just my opinion. 2 inch lift, with 33 inch BFG AT KOs. Will turn your rig into a head turner. Here's a shot of my XJ. It needed that tire to set it off. And I think it will set yours apart too. Just my opinion. :)20170317_195144.jpg

    Hey Madscotsman. Would be awesome if you kept us posted on your build here or in the Builds Thread. I'd really like to see what you do to her. And don't forget the pics. Lol.

    The build will take place over a period of time, but I definitely keep everyone posted. Now, if I can only figure out how to get the CD player working again...

    At my job. We have what we call WIPs. Work In Progress. All jeep builds are WIPs. And some seem never ending. Which in my opinion.....is not necessarily a bad thing. Lol....:)

    Good luck with the CD player. After the CD player in my XJ started eating my CD. I just replaced it.
