First couplke of Mods done (20" - Tint - Chrome)

Hopefully this photo bucket thing works...

Today I got the 20" Black/Chrome wheels, the Jet Black Limo tint and the chrom door handles done...

Monday is the 10K HIDs, stubby antenna and grab handles.

Then next week is the DUB grill (but painted mat-black to match the wheels contrast)

Although not my style from a 4x4 standpoint.............
Ya know.........I think it looks rather trick.
Your mods are quite tasteful IMO.
The color and stance work well with your chosen wheels.

Some time back, a member who's name escapes me, posted a black XK with what I think were 26's? Someone else will remember.
Anyways, that just looked tooooo strange to me.
Made the brakes look like they came off a go-cart.

Regardless, as a street fighter look, I like what you've done.

Thanks my man...I actually got some off-road tires to fit onto my 17" stocks as well, so when I do take it off the street and to the dunes or a camping trip, it'll go back to that original 4x4 rugged look you loyal Jeep guys prefer

I know exactly the guy yo are talking about, and I actually though they were 30" wheels and he had to cut the body. It was pretty crazy, but just like some people may not like mine...to each is their own eh?

The Auto customization shop actually ordered me 22" originally, as I was worried it would just take to much away from the Jeep brand...so had him return them for 20" as a "meet in the middle" tastefull compromise IMO.

I'll post more pics when I get the HIDs/Gas Cap/Stubby and Black mesh grill insert

I like the color your Commander. Match well with your mod.

Any rubbing at all?

I didn't do any backspacing that I am aware of (unless the guys in the shop did something, but I didn't order any parts or pay for that...so dont think so).

Just went with the 20 x 8.5" 35mm with a 275/45/20R and no spacing that I am aware of and all fit just fine
