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.

Here are the factory emblems we removed from our YJ. Meant to put them back on at some point, just didn't get around to it.



If those are what you are looking for confirm over pm please.
