You know it. Hopefully she will hold up to her initial beatdown. The Yj was just point and shoot, this will need some coaxing

Does the other one still make the cool looking whitefish symbol 50' up the trees? On a side note I've got a flashlight we can zip tie in it's place.

Today, I finished cutting down all my mag inserts (which proved to be a complete pain in the ass) and I finished up paint. I began mounting the tires on the rims...

I then went to bolt the second one on the jeep and found that the bolt pattern wouldn't fit my JK. I checked the first two when they arrived, and didn't think to check the rest as they all should have been the same. I guess not. I checked them all now, and it's only the one that is wrong, but it still is a major kick in the dick. Now I need an entire replacement rim along with another new center. I'm also still waiting on my 5th tire. I had it ordered, but called to check the status of it today and now I was told it was on backorder even though it was supposed to be in stock when I ordered it. WTF?

Edit: Quick note about the vendor. I sent an email to the vendor about two minutes prior to me making this post. Within about 5 minutes, my phone was ringing. It's not every day a vendor calls you at 8pm to fix and issue. Obviously he was going to replace the center, but he even offered to send me a new rim too no charge! He said both the rim and the center will be shipped first thing in the morning.

Moral of the story, two thumbs up to C&M Performance!

That setup is gonna be badass JR, looks great. I did some hardcore wheeling tonight. Drove jeep from the shop to house garage. New steering pump is ready to be picked up in town. Swap that out this weekend (hopefully pulley comes off fairly easily). Then replace starter and should be ready to roll!
