Thanks for the thumbup. I was looking around for 1.9 rims that will look good with the body. I was wounding weather to go with custom all black rims or more scaler white rims? What do you all think. BTW - rig crawls great with 2.2 tires, I'm not sure how my current set-up will run with 1.9.

For some reason white rims just give it a little bit more realistic look.

My vote is for white.

Looks killer man. I'd stick with the black wheels personally. White wheels do look sweet on some rigs, but I think the black would look better with the yellow body.

Default All Black rims

Thanks for the comps. Ya, Im looking for new all "Black" rims to go in the rig. I'm trying to find rims that are scale 2.2 look, but also in aluminum. Any suggestions?

What do you all thing about these?

Default LED Light kit

Here is the LED light kit to buy. Use our orginal light housing from your FJ40 to mount on the defender.

Those wheels would work well, but I'm partial to something that's a little less offset for a more scale look. I run Pro-Line's beadlocks on my CR-01. They suck the tires in a little bit and they look very realistic once they're mounted up.

Did you mean the "Eight Shooter" or the "Epics"? Are those PL metal or plastic? What tires are you using? Thanks for the advise.

Check out my the black rims. I think it does look better than silver beadlock.
