I actually have to agree with Woody on this one. Green FTW. Throw the bronze wheels on. It reminds me of the Camry coupe my mom drove forever in that color. 

Yup all orders placed for new tires and new wheels

A hun? And its green. You need to nickname that rig the "Super Sabre" aka "The Hun."

You could prob remove the vibration dampener as well.

I don't mind the green. Around here it's all sliver, black, or white. My 100 series was white, and had 260k on it when I sold it. As far as I know it's still running strong to the buyer from KY. I also own a first gen Tundra that's just shy of 200k, and I bought it because I had such good luck with the 100.

I have about 65K on my FJC with those tires, it is slightly louder than AT tires. For those in the sports car world, it sounds like R888 or the old Azenis, and nowhere like the nice yoko a052. 

 

 It isn't anything like those crazy MT rubber all the jeep guys run with continous "roar roar"

Will do it next week. Got a weekend offroad trip with the 100 and the 200. Should be interesting.

See, that looks perfect for my style. Good mechanically. Not perfect visually so I don't feel bad if something happened to it in the wilderness. Already has the hitch for a small trailer/my bike rack. With the gold trim, it totally reminds me of mom's old camry.

So glad you went with the blackwalls out

sucks that all that dirt and dust and mud will never wash off/out, no matter how hard you try

Sounds like I'll need to load up the camping crate and head west. Then we can take them both out. 

Onemanarmy: What's wrong with some dirt on an adventure rig? If it was in my garage, It would see dirt often.

Well there is more to life than a perfect, pristine, showroom looking offroader, no?
