      I'll snap a few and send them your way josh.

      Are you going to Wuste? If so we should set up a shoot with the two bagged R's.

      Wheels and tires are here but need longer wheel bolts and hub rings. We test fit them and the front bumper sits on the ground with the new wheels!

      it seems to have settled a little better but it is still holding up on something. It is definitely not the frame though which is good news!

      Nah no wuste for me. With my work schedule and family I only get to make it to SoWo each year. You going to that? Best show in the country and getting bigger and better each year!

      No SoWo for me, its in the peak of guiding season and I can only take off enough for my annual moab trip and Wuste!

      They are 18x8.5 and 9.5 (depending on how they sit I might get a bigger lip for the rear and put the rear lip on the front...

      Whelp... the wheels are on. I am going to throw some camber on the front/rear tomorrow and I might have to pull the front fenders a bit but I am loving how they look!

      THIS IS NOT AIRED OUT ALL THE WAY. Also, I am not a photographer... but there will be some bitchin videos of this coming up soon!
      Tweaked the first one a bit...

      18x8.5/9.5 et 43. The rear is as flush as you could possibly imagine but I am thinking I will put some camber in both front/rear to tuck and not trash my fenders... or run spacers up front.

      Wow Luke, that is really looking great. Amazing what a difference the wheels make.

      I hope to see you rolling around some time. Maybe we can meet up some time after my R arrives. I won't be in the same league, but I really like the look of your car.

      maybe if you wanted to ruin your fenders/tires. thats the beauty of air. goes down when you want and goes up when you need to drive. just look at the rear wheel, you cant really drive with it like that.

      The car is on Air Bags, meaning by the push of a button you can raise and lower the car
