Re: MGP Caliper Covers Installed...

I'm still debating on the "paint the stock caliper" vs "install the caliper cover" mod, I'd do the caliper cover if they were not so large, so I guess I have to paint the stock caliper.

Sick WK by the way! I would love to see it in person some time!
I feel yah bro, but the real truth about big brake kit are the opposite of what you are saying. Big brake kits are for vehicles that need superior stopping power for high-horsepower and the size of the wheel has nothing to do whether or not u need a BBK. If you have big wheels it is highly advisible to upgrade to better pads and rotors, but still no need for BBK.

Anywho...i sent you my # so we can meet up sometime and you can be the judge for yourself.

Re: MGP Caliper Covers Installed...

Well I did video shoot with MPG yesterday for their SEMA video that will be playing at SEMA. The Jeep won't physically be at SEMA 2011, but I already have 3 of my sponsors that will be displaying photos and videos of it at SEMA. So it gonna be nice to have it out in the crowd at the show.

Anywho I snapped 3 more pics yesterday to post up again, so enjoy...

Re: MGP Caliper Covers Installed...

I noticed in your sponsor letter that you wrote that your Jeep has a widebody conversion, care to elaborate?

Re: MGP Caliper Covers Installed...

I would rather paint what's there not just cover up. That said they look ok, better than my rusty calipers lol

Well it doesn't look like it has a widebody. Looks like it's shaved and filled. Your fenders are the same as anyone else's... No need to get your panties in a knot when someone asks you something about your Jeep.....

Actually, I've been on this forum since day one... Literally... Check the join date! Lol My old screen name is .moneen. I've been modding Mopars 11 years now. Doing my own work, with my own money. This is my third build...

It's kinda whack that you were advertising mods that "you" haven't done "yet" to pull more funding...
