    Like:

    -colour
    - rims
    - tires
    - it is clean

    Dislike:

    - liscence plate cover in front
    - a pillar lights (only because I like the folding windshield function)
    - faded fender flares
    - stock side steps
    - white walls on tires facing outwards

    And it looks a little like the back end is higher than the front, but I am not sure.

    Ideas:

    - look up the thread about heat treating fender flares, it will make them look like new.
    - you should definately upgrade the front bumper, maybe put a winch in there.

    Likes: Clean appearance, lack of rust, colour combo, Tires, Quick Disconnects.

    Impartial: Wheels. I don't "like" them but I don't dis-like them either. They're not bad, whatever suits your style.

    Dislikes: T-Case drop, Faded flares, chain license plate frame, front bumper ends, factory "steps".

    At the end of the day it's your Jeep. If you're happy with it then keep on keepin' on.

    sdeff did not want the white writing on the side walls facing out however had no choice as everythinng from 33's and under had the white letering

    as for the TS drop i hate that too, i get hung up on anything and everything...

    Since that pic i have added new 7inch flares, delta H4 conversion, vent scoop and hood defflector, braded brake lines, zone adjustable discos annd thats about it....

    i had trouble posting the pics of her stock, but its was basically just a stock black 05 tj sport

    lol...kk so youve got the white out or in?....bc i was told as you stated it "can" be done but now recomended.....like chugging a 40 of forty creek "can" be done but no recomended....

    .I dont do enough hardcore wheeling to justify having the letters out to better my performence....

    I don't mind the look of the white lettering on the outside, but if you did want to change it, you could. Don't know if it's recommended though. You'll have to check to see how much it'll affect your street and off-road performance.

    As far as the rest of the Jeep... Get rid of the side steps and that little plastic thing at the base of the front fender flares and get some rock rails. If you don't want to spend the $$$ on an after market bumper, consider just a stinger that mounts to the factory bumper. It'll be for looks only though. A CB antenna will complete the look.

    Switch side for side (would have to be re & re) but you CAN do it.

    yes i saw a guy on selling mini bolt on stingers, look pretty cool...I getting a body to weld up a small light bar that will bolt under the tow hooks..

    as for rock rails im looking at the rugged ridge combo side/rock gurds..dont know the exact name but there black and have a textured finish to them
