Re: Stone white WK2 pictures please...

Take a look at my profile. Maybe you'll get some ideas. White is the best color to modify because every small detail stands out that much more.

Re: My 2013 GC so far...

Mine are 17" Rockstar XD series -12mm offset, 5.88" backspacing. That backspacing is recommended for the 2013 wk2's. My tires measure 32" and don't rub at all. I like those Raptors that'll look sick....

Re: My 2013 GC so far...

Turning radius wasn't compromised at all. After doing a lot of research I went with the biggest tire I could fit without a lift or leveling kit. Love the look of the Nitto Trail Grapplers. 265/70R17...

Re: Yup, Mopar 3.6 CAI is here ;)

Re: Plasitdip'd grill.

Looks good. I like that you removed the front Jeep badge also. Why not the back badges? I'm plasti-dipping my side door moldings this weekend. Should tie it all together nicely.

Re: wheel offset / backspacing question

Mine are +12 and perfect. They stick out a good amount and give that rugged look to the Jeep. Yea the lower the number the more they will show past your fender.

Re: Backspace help.

I went with a 5.88" backspace with 17x8 rims and a 265/70R17 tire, but no lift on my 2013 wk2. I would imagine it being the same across the board. You'll just be able to have bigger tires with a...

Re: Bushwacker Fender Flares WK2

Love this, but I'll wait until they're a little cheaper. Definately painting the screws black though.

Re: Overland Summit meets Plastidip

P.s I'd lose the front Jeep emblem but thats just my opinion. Looks a lot cleaner without it and there's no mistaking that Jeep grill!

Re: Overland Summit meets Plastidip

Re: 17" tire size

Re: Plasitdip'd grill.

It almost acts like a protectant to the grill bc its more like a rubber/plastic than paint. I have none and I've had it plasti-dipped for over a month now with a lot of driving for work. It's great....

I agree. Tow hooks on a Jeep seem like a no brainer. I love the roof rack I have on mine. I added it when I added my rims and tires so its hard to say if my MPG changed directly bc of the rack. I did...

Re: 17" tire size

I would go 17" rim with more tire sidewall. More rugged look. I like the tow hook idea might do that soon. Whatever you decide its going to look good either way. Good luck!

Re: wheel offset / backspacing question

I had 17x8's put on with a 265 tire on my 2013 wk2 with a 5.88" backspacing. I think anything over 5 you will be safe with. the lower backspacing will push the rim out further though so not sure what...

Re: Plasitdip'd grill.

Oh yea you're gonna like it a lot. I did 5 coats. The more you do the easier it would be to take off if you ever decide you want to. 5 was perfect when we did mine, but I'm never taking it off lol

Re: 17" tire size

I have 265/70R17 Nitto Trail Grapplers on mine with no rub. No lift either. I've read that this is the biggest you can go without issues. They measure 31.56". I'll attach a pic of mine.

Re: Plastic dip rear

Btw back rear chrome piece pops right off, its only a few clips on top and bottom. Front grill chrome also pops off with about 6 clips on top and 6 on bottom. Makes it a lot easier to plasti dip.

Re: Plastic dip rear

Here is my 2013 stone white with plasti dipped rear in black. To give you an idea of what it looks like. IMO I'd go with black. Gun metal is unique though, you don't see that very often.
