Default Jeep JK getting some upgrades

Our customer's JK is coming in for some more work.
Upgrading the 35's on 18's to 38x13.5's on 24's!
We'll also be installing front and rear gears.
Next we are taking the Jeep over to our paint shop and having his new fenders painted black to match his Jeep.
Stay tuned for more!

I understand, but as a shop we have to be open to customer preferences as long as the customer is paying for the project. But I do understand your likes and preferences, because on a personal note I do believe more tire/ less wheel is what I think is right. For example I have 40's on 17's under my Jeep.

Yeah, it wasn't a knock on you. Just amazed at what some people want on their Jeeps.

Yeah man, no offense taken. Just a nice discussion about other opinions on Jeep builds.

As much as I hate thinking about 24's on a Jeep, I kind of want to see what it looks like. Is that bad?

The tires should be arriving today. But I'll keep everyone up to date and follow up with some pictures once were done.

Our customer is opting out of the 38's. We purchased him gears specific for 38's and he has more than enough clearance to run 38's on his Jeep. But the customer believes that is to much for him.
We found him Nitto Trail Grapplers M/T in a size equivalent to 36's. Before 38's on 24's was still going to give him some meat on the side wall but now it will be a low profile looking tire.
But again you guys will see pictures once its finished.

Just got finished putting the new wheels and tires on the Jeep. The 24x14 are seriously huge and the tires are extremely wide. Let me know what you guys think.
