Eh, the one wheel (that I did first) I put more effort into and it is taking a beating like a champ even with some light wheeling.

The other three, not so much.

I know plenty of people who have plasti-dipped their wheels with good results. My buddy with his SRT-8 WK did his last summer and they've help up to his driving. He tracks the Jeep so I'm sure his brakes get nice and warm.

The product is new to me, so I figured I'd ask. If it holds up well, I might think about using it next time I do a complete refinish on my sliders.

not saying it wont hold up, but the wheel itself acts like a heat sink to draw heat away from the brakes, and it really doesnt matter if its the inside or outside of the wheel, its gonna be the same temp.

like I said, im not saying it wont hold up

Now that won't last. As soon as you use the sliders, expect to have to touch them up.

If I did anything to sliders I'd either paint them and clear coat or herculiner them.

I touch 'em up anyway....hehe

When I first painted my sliders 5+ years ago, I seem to remember doing about 4 coats of primer and 5+ coats of Krylon. I lost count how many times I've touched up over the years

My sliders take a beating for sure.

I put it on to see how wheels look black. Give it a rub and it comes right off. If you want them black just scuff and paint. Plasti dip is good for visualization.

Today I cleaned my inside windows... We'll see how they look tomorrow when it's light out. I probably shouldn't have attempted to do that in the dark, but I'm sure they're better than they were. My husky likes to lick everything when she's in the Jeep. I cleaned dried up slobber off the back door panels and the front armrest when she decided to lay down and put her head there. One thing I like about the ZJ cloth is it is pretty easy to get dog hair off of. I had a hell of a time with my Jimmy when I'd have her in there. I spent a couple hours cleaning it before I sold it to get all the hair out. In here, 10 minutes vacuuming and it's clean.

Also, I like that idea for the discos. When I finish lining my skids I'm going to install the pins for them on the front skid to keep them out of the way when they're discoed. I've been zip tieing them out of the way for now. That way just seems a little more secure than zip ties. Although, you know you drive a ZJ when you can use zip ties to "fix" just about anything. (I should put that in the thread, if it's not already there... I think it is.)

They come with the JKS dicos. You have to have the front skid to utilize them though. Otherwise you are SOL.

They come with it but you need to get the hardware to mount them. I was pretty pissed they didn't include the $.40 worth of bolts and lock nuts to install them.

Mine came with the pins that hold the discos and two allen head bolts but no nuts or washers to fasten them. For a measly 140 bucks you can expect them to just give you everything I guess.
