I have a Lift kit installed already, So Im not sure if you would have problems with the them rubbing if you tried installing them without a lift...depend on the tires.

If you get the wheels with the 255/75/R17 tires that come on the JK rubicon's, You will need some lift and maybe even some minor bumper trimming. But i don't know what's the biggest tire you can fit without needed a lift or trimming.

-GenIII Projector Headlights run about $140-185. I got mine for $145
-Projector Fog Lights Are $60
-17'' JK Moab Wheels are anywhere from $275-$500 for a set, which usually includes 5 wheels.
For the one's I got I paid......what for it..................$125!! for a set of 5 in amazing condition. I had to drive 320miles total to pick them up but it was worth it.
-And painting everything depends on if you're painting them yourself or at a paint shop. I was gonna paint mine myself but my dad knows someone who has a paint shop and will paint my 5 wheels and my grille for $85, so I went with that.



**Update**
I have to wait till Monday to paint my wheels bc the person who's gonna paint my wheels is out of town till then. He gave me a good price so I'm gonna wait.

Here's my stuff, just sitting, waiting to be installed/painted.

Semi-Gloss Paint it is...Just have to wait till Monday for the paint guy to get back in town. Decided to get them done professionally instead of just me spray painting them in my back yard.
