Which lugs did you get and where did you source them? What about a locking lug?
I don’t use locking lug nuts. Ordered the black lug nuts off of amazon (dpaccessories is the manufacturer). They are splined which I suppose is more secure than a standard lug but.

Fixed one of the few things that I really didn’t care for on the new design yesterday....goodbye cheesy logos...

What do you guys think? Do you like it clean or with logos?

I think the logo breaks it up a bit. Looks plain without it.

If I where to remove my logo I would replace it with something personalized for me. Like a come and take it sticker, or a Russian Bot sticker.

I am a big fan of debaging. Looks great so far.

I’m curious if you have thought about smoking the two led’s on the fenders. I think with the dark loom smoking those would look bad ass

Love those Method wheels. I'm not seeing fitment for the '18 JL on Tirerack, yet they're on your rig. Same Back spacing and offset as '17 JK?

Also a clean slab of sheet metal communicates "lightweight" psychologically.

Consider removing Rubicon too as Jeep as got the later JK and now JL noses far to clustered with ''designifications" The hood vents I'd repaint to match body colour but would rather sahara/sport hood on my rubi if I could.

granit looks best on interior too where painted sheet metal intrudes into cabin and will blend in, unlike Mojito or Nacho.
This way you leave all contrasting accents to the aftermarket bits you're most fond of, and, incidently, give you the, "I'm a tasteful, understated guy" look, but directs your eye immed to the anodized alloy bits such as dampers or coilovers, force 55 d-ring-thimble-hook-whichever-thingy, maybe some dynatrac pumpkin covers, a set of satin-finished race-tech wheels, genright aluminum front bumper (jk bmprs fit JL I'm told)... that's my dream JL - and one on sound visual design principles I think.

I'm really into granite on JK/JL w/ colour-matched top and fenders, although my order would see it with the hardtop and fabric top both. This may surprise you: my fabric top would be tan, as would my seats. Last, I'd tear out the bottom black plastic section of each fender, that's the part with lights contained. Soooo nasty looking, and if you go look at EJS 2017 jeep prototypes the one that looks like an offroad pope-mobile (white with clear plastic everywhere) you'll see the front half anyway is JL with same windsheild, grill and fenders - except with the fender's bottom plastic section removed and it looks pretty good and gives awesome clearance.

Same backspacing as JK, but lug nuts will be 14mx1.50 instead od 1/2-20.
