Re: Almost all new wheels...

With the wheels? Yes, for now. I have to see what else I will do on the outside. I like the look of the OEM Overland wheels a lot. I looked at aftermarket and nothing grabbed my eye. I kept gravitating to the look of the stock 20'S

I'm thinking of doing something with the grill and rear brow. Either carbon graphite or colored matched.

Re: Almost all new wheels...

color matching rear brow is the way to go, IMO.

Re: Almost all new wheels...

Got the wheels mounted and took some quick pics. I know this just the OEM look
But wow does even this little make the jeep look bad ass. Some guy in a porsche suv pulled up to me on the street and was totally checking out the jeep.
I'm extremely happy. Also, the wheels look even better in person. Have a more polished and shinny look.

Re: Almost all new wheels...

Sometimes I find that an upgrade original rim is a great option. They have the backspacing right, they're hubcentric, etc. and those definitely wake up the look of your truck.
Nice pic's

Re: Almost all new wheels...

I'm considering this option... Any scratches on the OE wheels when you got them?

Re: Almost all new wheels...

I guess I will be your two twin soon because I usually go for the OEM wheel upgrade in most cases.

LOOKS really GOOOOOD.

No scratches at all. They were in awesome condition. After winter is over here in Chicago, I am going to polish them even more to make them stand out even more.

Cool, And I will be your twin since I am looking to do some of the mods you did. Like the grill and lower chrome piece. How hard was it to do those things? And did you get the parts from justforjeeps?

I heard the polished Jeep wheels have a clear cost on them so you really can't polish them further.

Anybody know if this is true?

Thanks for the info. Anyone on here know the actual part number of the polished overland summit wheels? My dealer's parts department can add all the stock mods I'm doing but I need the part number.
