quadra drive I.....and headlights

Ok so I heard this, that with an all wheel drive system, say only one of my tires goes bad and needs to be replaced. I heard that if I do that without replacing all four, I will mess up my drive system. is this true?? Also, I really want to paint the inside of my headlights. I've seen some jeeps on here with that done and It looks so sad. Do I paint to match my deep beryl green, or just a flat black?

To the tire question, as long as you buy the same size and type (all terrain, mud, etc) you'll be fine.

I agree with Overboostin on your tire question. With Quadra Trac I you have 3 open differentials so there is nothing to wear out with just a slight variation of tire speeds. However, expect a lot of flack from some tire installers like Discount Tire who will refuse to sell you 1 tire unless the tread depth is less than 4/32th inch difference between the old and new tires.
