- to do: window tint on fronts

I also have a Sporticon.. LOL How did you do the dipping on the Jeep Emblem and key holes?

I also have Tint in the future and the only difference I have is I put 1.75 Wheel Spacers and a different Rock guard.

Nothing wrong with the Sport or Sport S. Blank canvas. Just hope you opted for the Anti-Slip Diff (LSD) so you got the Dana 44 HD (M220) in the rear.. Lookin' good guys!
Thanks @MORTON. I did grab the LSD and dana44. Not sure i’ll need it but I wanted it in case (and good for resale?)

What do you think of the rough country bar?...
It’s in the mail buddy! Can’t wait for it to arrive. It’ll be a minute before I install it though because I have to install the Mopar Aux Switch Bank first lol

Hi,

I am interested in putting the Rubi tires and wheels on my Sport S just like you did. Since I have no clue where to begin, is it just as simple as purchasing the tires and throwing them on the Sport S? Do i need to regear, adjust PSI or anything of that sort? Thanks!

It's just that simple. You might want to recalibrate for tire size so your odometer and speedometer are accurate. That's especially true for an automatic transmission so it can adjust its shift points.

Exactly like @jmcdtucson says. I went w Rubi take offs to avoid back spacing, spacers etc that may be needed for aftermarket. Plug and play.
