    Pics like this are why I love this color more and more everyday! It really changes colors based on your surroundings and sky.

    I know right?!? Sometimes when I'm driving and spot another one, it takes me a moment before I know is it sting grey, or the other grey (forgot the actual name)

    Took these on a cloudy day outside the shop. Sting gray is such a cool color.

    Jk version AEV Borahs with 37’s on stock Sting Gray 2020 Rubicon no lift.

    I am very surprised how well it works without a lift and 37’s. Lots of highway driving and no rub going over expansion joints or dips in the road. I wouldn’t take it off-road like this though as I’m sure it’ll take the fenders off :)

    This is only temporary as I am waiting on a lift to arrive.

    Wheels look fantastic - can you share the color/finish? In the photos they look very close to the Sting Gray color, would you say that in person the wheels are lighter or darker than the sting Gray? Thanks!

    The finish is the Onyx color from AEV. On a cloudy day where sting gray looks darker it is a closer match but not the same really. The wheels are much darker then sting gray on any other day and they have a metallic finish. I had the wheels first on Crystal Granite 18my Rubicon that I sold and they were almost the same color as that.

    Oh yeah, I'm doing the 37s, no lift myself. All good with just me and the wife in the Jeep. Problems arise when we fill the back with kids, then I'm rubbing on everything! Fixing that issue with a nice Black Friday suspension sale!

    That’s weird because most of the time it’s my wife and my teenage daughter in the Jeep with me, and just this weekend it was all of us plus two more kids in the back with my daughter. We drive all over Nashville without any rub anywhere.

    I thought for sure it would rub the rear fender well plastic were it bumps out but it hasn’t touched it. maybe the offset of our wheels make the difference of no rubbing for me.

    I'm on zero offset 4.75 backspace and have rubbed enough in the past 2 months that I've made holes in that plastic bump. Weird...
