Glad you like the tires.. :iconbiggrin:
Just my $.02, but your rig'd look a skosh better with some herculiner up the sides, to play off all that black in the wheel wells now..

I was going to go with the same dark grey as the bumpers when I do the herculiner and install the plastic door moldings.
Do you think the hood can support the extra spare? If I put diamond patterned steel on top?
