Ok so here's the next step...

This is half real, half 3D cad drawing, but the parts should be arriving soon I sent the cad file to our CNC guy.



Need to protect them from this...

Thanks man.
I got close to 10,000 miles on mine, zero issues. Here's a good shot of the center bore and stud alignment:
Oh and stiffeners aren't happening. Too much to get them custom CNC'd.



I know 2 guys locally that are now running them, and I've seen maybe 4 or 5 across the net starting to run them.

click to go to photobucket for video: (open/open fail, but you get the idea)






This one just rolled out of the garage with 2 more cylinders and an exploder rear. It'll be getting different rubber soon...



This guy on NAXJA has them too.

Thanks for the tip WK, I jumped on your bandwagon. I love the look and the rims place the tire perfectly for full stuff no rub. Please excuse the poser shot...


The garage is a happy place...

Nice Mike.
I like how perfect they seat on the centerbore of the hub.
Makes getting them on real easy.

Started thinking and putting those on a TJ with the BS at 4.5 it will put the wheel at the same point as Ravines with an inch more clearance on the inside so you aren't hitting the LCA's. I had a set of KJ 16x7 steelies on snow tires and I had to get 1.25 spacers to get the edge of the wheel back to the fenders and get clearance. I think this is a better solution. 255-75-17 or 265-70-17 could go on those. Getting a set of JKU springs and shocks from a friend when he swaps out his spacer lift for a real lift.

And if you want to get fancier, you can get a set of alloy's with the same dimensions. Swap the Jeep caps onto them. All over ebay for less than $300 a set.

Is it close? Are you going to put washers in the steering stops?

No, I just put some rubber on the LCAs, and didn't turn that hard.

It's lifted and on different wheels/tires now.
