Hey, naw they're not stock. They were my chrome Granite Alloy GX-1's, and have since been hit in satin black. I also had custom center caps cut by a waterjet guy to flatten the center of the wheel, as I didnt like the cheap plastic center caps sticking out. They are 20''x8.5'', but a couple people already have thought they were like 18's, I think because the tires are only 245/40 it gives the illusion of a slightly smaller wheel. I wasn't sure about having it done either, but I'm pretty happy with the results, although there are a couple minor flaws. I would say if you like the look go for it, just find a powdercoater you're really comfortable with.

Ha yeah it is a popular look lately, but can you blame people? lol Also my personal reasoning was Chicago/kansas weather and chrome wheels means I had the wheel cleaner out daily, gets old after awhile haah

also, In the process of sandblasting off the chrome I came to learn most automotive wheels dont have great chrome jobs (as it flaked off from a light blasting) so I guess I was trying to jump the gun before the chrome pitted out or any other visible flaws

The front air damn and the side skirts are the mopar kit from justforjeeps! I ordered them already painted, and the color seems slightly slightly off, so if I were to get them again I would order primed and have them painted local.

Thanks,
Yeah, I already got a few vinyl quotes, and I've actually been in the process of getting paint quotes for the roof the last few weeks, it will be either vinyl or painted this summer. I dont think I'm going to do the entire thing, but follow the lower contour edges of the roof from front to back, meaning keeping like the raised side edges where the rack mounts silver and blacking out everything lower between.
