Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Thinking about getting SRT Rep wheels.,, What to do with my existing wheels? Sell them? Keep them as winter beaters(the wheels are nice but not perfect)?

Meh.....at least its 4wd......I actually kinda like it. I used to be a die hard blue oval guy till I bought a brand new Super Duty x cab in'96. After that fiasco I went back to Mopar and never looked back.

I'm looking around to pick up a 4.7HO WJ to go up. If this happens, looks like I'm getting reps for the DD!
As someone who went from a 4.0 to a 4.7 I can tell you its a nice upgrade! I'm in the UP of Michigan for the rest of this week, then home, then the eastern/southern side of Iowa all next week.

Ooh, those look nice too, I would have considered them if I'd seen them before I got the eagle eyes. I only upgraded my reverse bulbs for now, VLED cree 7w bulbs, they are amazingly bright!

Yeah dude, I wouldn't run the reps in the winter. I hate like hell taking mine off and bolting up the winter wheels and tires, but it's better than destroying a nice set of rims.

Damn dude, those are some bright bulbs! I once ran highbeam silverstar headlamp bulbs for reverse lights in my XJ. I think I could see better going backwards than going forwards. I'm surprised that new cars aren't manufactured with brighter reverse lamps from the factory.
