this was one of the first things i did was to take the stock flairs off and see if i like it this way didnt know that it would be about a year untill i acutualy got a set big enough to acutualy trim them

Slow Poke Build "The Black Bandit" 219261_2006496250866_1497469850_2241261_5601906_o

UPDATE: ok so my 7 year annivasery was july 30 took my wife out to Cheedars for lunch with the kids and when we went to leave my starter gave me this low growl sound that said "stick a fork in me boss im done" and it stoped cold in its tracks so needless to say in the middle of the restarant parking lot with tons of people all dressed up and watching i changed my starter in about 30 min the guys at autozone tried to test it and it wouldent even budge

Took off my front bumper today much Easter than I thought all 6 bolts were just about hand tight I'll have some pix up in the morning. Also had to relocate my black bomb from behind the bumper to under where the coolant tank would be

Well they are cut for 31"s but in now running 29s (waiting to get bigger) in just cutting to fit the bumper cause I don't have the 97^ fenders wish I did but dont have the cash to go to jy by the way what you asking for the wheels and Tiers off the parts jeep I think my lug holes are wallowed out cause I can't get my rims centered on the hubs (not hub centric) so I get bad vibes ever sence I got these new tires
