I have Ravine's on mine, in my area they can usually be had a little cheaper than Canyons.

Guy in the club just e-mailed me and said he had 5 Ravines, also a 15x8, but wants $250 for the set..... May just have to wait a little to do this, for a lower price and a different situation.


--

Unfortunately, the Audi's clutch will need to be done this summer which is going to cost me a whopping $2,300 in parts & labor (oh, the joys of German sports cars) so I'll need to focus some cash on that. So far this year the Jeep has gotten:
  • Adams CV/SYE Kit
  • Currie Front Arms
  • Magnaflow/Banks Complete Exhaust
  • PSC Steering Box
  • TnT Tube Fenders
To the tune of (ironically) just over $2,300. After these fenders are on, she's going to sit as she is for a while hahaha. I'm off to have a beer to digest those financial numbers one more time.

That's actually a good price if the are in really good condition, atleast here in PA. Just keep watching for an exceptional deal. Good luck!

Ryan, how's the prep working coming along on those fenders? Bit early for a beer by most people's standards...but I strongly approve!

Good to know. I'll keep you updated.

Joe the prep work is great. They've been sitting in the shed waiting for me to get the existing fenders off. The bondo is cured, the seam sealer is cured, and now it's just a matter of the test-fit installation to drill the holes out for the under hood components. CrawlingForward is coming over tomorrow to assist with that process, but I've already got the driver's side fender off and sitting in the driveway.

Once those holes are drilled, it's a matter of figuring out my electrical situation with the turn signals, and prepping them for the final paint job. Other little things will include cutting down the A to Z rocker guards so that they end just before the flare begins on the front fender.

The beer thing was a joke I just hate actually knowing how much gets spent in such short periods of time. It's much easier to not pay attention to it... although I am on my third can of cranberry seltzer of the day

Whew. It's 90 degrees out.

I finished half-installing these. They're held on with 1 bolt on the firewall and 3 on the front grill. They'll look a lot better when they're color matched.

The only problem is that now I need 37s..... It's funny how quickly 35s look small.

Underhood stuff (i.e. washer fluid resevoirs, horns, etc) need to be mounted. Because people do things differently, TNT requires you to drill your own mounting holes so you can re-arrange everything. I needed to mock up the installation in order to drill the holes, which I wanted to do before I spent a billion hours going over the paint job
