Re: Last call for the Black Ops Bumper Group Buy!!!

I would certainly be willing to order the bumper and pay upfront if we could be assured of receiving it within a reasonable amount of time. I suspect many people lost interest because of the amount...

Re: LT275/65/18 vs P265/60/18

I've had Silent Armor 265/65/18s (31.5" diameter) on for the last 12K miles, and am very pleased with them as a year-round tire, including on snow and ice here in the Northwest. This size fits...

I'll see if I can get some decent pics in the near future, although I've had trouble posting them in the past. Will try again.

Re: Chinese Running Boards?

dslide, those vertical pieces frame the ACC, which is much appreciated by those of us who have it. And since urethane is relatively flexible, I'm guessing they are also necessary to help retain the...

Re: Aries 3" stainless nerf bars on 2011 GCO

Re: Anybody tried the Rocky Road Roof Rack???

Re: what do you think of these 22" wheels?

To each his own, but to me wheels this large look a little silly on a Jeep. You will feel every pebble you drive over. Might be OK if you never get off the pavement, I suppose.

Re: Roof rack

The Rocky Road roof rack is very sturdy and should be capable of carrying more lumber than any of the other racks I've seen or heard about to date.
