I'm near Orlando too. You arn't kidding when it comes to swamps and tall tires. I run a tiny set of 36's with about 9" of lift.... Sure is scary having water around your calves when crossing a pond. Luckily I've got the snorkel and a master breather for all fluid filled parts of the heep. Even with the steps i've taken, I've seen what looks like a puddle completly swallow people on 40+ inch tires... Sure is an interesting site!

Such a love/hate relationship w/the swamps of Florida...

^ Yea, I have been in the Green Swamp and Richloam since I was a kid. My first Jeep had 33's, it died a slow death out there. Had to move up if I wanted to still play around in that area. I just bought a River Raider Expedition Snorkel, going to add that to this one, and tie all the breathers into their custom box, then see how that goes. =)

I have a set of those badges off our YJ. They aren't bent, but the paint is probably a little nicked and scratched. I'll see if I can find them tonight and snap some images of them. Wonder if it would be worth it to make a mold and reproduce them?

Did some homework on repopping the tags:

Making them out of epoxy resin would be fairly cheap and easy to do on a as needed (as ordered)basis with some minor investment.

Getting them chromed would be expensive on an as-needed basis (as ordered.

I could re-pop them, and sell them as unfinished - rattle can your color of choice, but chroming the plastic on a set by set basis isn't economical.

Would you buy a pair for $10 unpainted resin? or would you spend $40 on a pair chromed and painted black background?

Me - I would prefer they were black. Yet, even so, I would pay 40 for a pair that was black and in good condition. I hate the whole chrome look. Or 20.00 that were unfinished. lol =)

I'll look at making a mold and making you a set of them unfinished. You can rattle can them any color you like.

I'll PM you with cost but it shouldn't be more than about $10 for a pair.
