Eagle Alloys. The Dick Cepak wheels makes your Jeep look like a ghetto wagon.

A "Vanilla kind of guy" would choose these shoes:



not these shoes



And yes, I do have a pair. They don't fit anymore, I'm not even sure where they're at, lol. I believe they have a simple windmill design on them. (1/2 Dutch)

The skinny pedal on the right is my friend. the gas gauge is not.

I have seen those before and always thought those shoes must be the most uncomfortable things in the world to wear.....so do tell do you have to kick up in the lazy boy for whole day to let the dogs recover.

I like the look of the Eagle Alloys,

. . . but I'm most impressed with your photoshop abilities.

I like the Eagle Alloys better for looks but you aren't going to like having to polish those things all the time, especially after winter driving.

Eagle Alloys. Definitely the Eagle Alloys.

On a side note, the Icy Hot Stuntaz should have hired you to do their Photoshop work. Great job!

Precisely why the XJ has the DC's on it, every winter I spend hours polishing the mag' chloride pits/corrosion out of my wife's Eagles the snow tires are mounted on. The DC's are one of the only coated wheels that are also cheap enough to ding up with rocks and not feel bad about it. Something to think about if you live where the roads are treated with anything.

I couldn't put those DCs on my TJ. I can't stand the way they look. I guess I'm "vanilla" too.

I went with the flat black 7069s. Basically the same wheels as my 1069s but in painted black. It'll be SO nice not to have to spend all weekend buffing them out. This winter was murder on the polished aluminum wheels. I'd never seen them so bad.

After the polished Centerlines I had on my Mustang I swore I'd never go with that type of wheel again but the 1069s were cheap and they served their purpose. At the time I bought them (back in Jan '06) there weren't any black wheels that even approached the price I got them at. The 7069s weren't much more in price and hopefully will be maintenance free.
