I like it, man. Need to take the brush to those letters and get the blue off! Some people might get on you for not having the blackwall out, but I think it works.:thumbsup: Can't wait to get my setup on this week for real, dude.

i actualy didnt have a choice with the lettering. there is an inside and outside part of the tire, and the outside will always have raised white letters.

No choice? Is it just with that tire? Every tire I've ever owned has allowed me the choice.

I have a set of Goodyear Wrangler GSA tires on my jeep that are directional. White lettering out only. Has to do with the tread pattern.

My motorcycle tires are diretional too.

You'll understand when you see the tread pattern.

They aren't uni-directional, but they do have a non-symmetrical tread pattern:



So Zero... does this mean you're confirmed now?!

Allright, got my (i.e. my, Mario and Frank's) BFG's.....they were delivered this a.m....along with my Cepek lights. They're wired up now. Painted the covers to match my truck paint (blue). I know, pics or didn't happen. Wife took the camera to school and left it there. Should get it back tomorrow, so I'll post them then. These lights are WWWAAAYYY brighter than those cheap baja lights. I'll be attaching 2 of those to the basket facing the rear, and the other 2 will be centered on each side. 360 light coverage is my goal. I'll need to be getting me a bigger alternator! lol!

Not a huge fan of the chrome on the lights, but that's nothing I can't fix with a little paint. I'll probably paint them black..

Where are you tapping all the power for the lights ?

I'll be getting a power bastards alternator and Optima yellow top. I won't be turning them all on at once anyways, so I think I'll be ok there for this trip. No biggie....

Right now the roof lights are tapped into the rear fuse block, and the grille ones are run to the battery. They are bright now, but could be brighter. Once I do the above mentioned things, they'll be even brighter....
