Trade those ridiculous angry-eyes for something a little more dignified, and it'll be gorgeous...

I enjoy looking at yall's build pictures. One thing I can't figure out about this one. Customer rolls in on what looks like are maybe some KMC Machete wheels (hard to tell in the pics), and rolls out on some Raceline beadlocks.....BUT, is running a 1.5" spacer. If putting that much in to a build, why not have properly backspaced wheels? I can't imagine doing that much work on a jeep and having to use wheel spacers.

The spacers were already on when it rolled in the shop. This customer actually purchased those Raceline wheels from another customer of ours. The other customer had a different set-up, so in order to make the wheels work, the spacers were retained.
