I could get used to that look... I'm not sure if I'd keep the KM2's that are on the rims now or spend the $ to move my Kevlars over (depending on which had more/better tread!)

I was thinking the all Aluminum (instead of Black Rings) would look better, but if the price is right I will do whatever makes sense.

If I end up getting these rims, that might be it for a while... Fenders are still probably #3 or 4 on the Priority list behind Better Steering (Hydro Assist on my Currie), Poly Cage, Tire Carrier. That is of course unless I really wreck my stock fenders in Johnson Valley in a couple weeks.

Suspension and Under Armor probably comes after all that stuff, unless I find someone willing to throw me a bag of cash for my 4.5" RE TriLink Long Arm on an offer I can't refuse!

I'm thinking another year or two depending on my financial stability and situations between now and then. If I quit my job like I'd really like too, all of those things (and maybe my Jeep ownership) is in Question/Jeopardy.

Yeah, you are right. The silver would look better with all of your aluminum upgrades. I just know how good that green looks on black rims but those are solid green jeeps I was thinking. Those al racelines looks good on a minivan man they are bad arse

Would be easy enough to swap out the rings I suppose.

this is what i was thinking of but I agree now that the aluminum ones will look better on your rig. These are the ones that I want.

After getting the "How To, Especially For Dummies Refresher Course" on how to set Nutserts without a tool the other night (Thanks Blaine ), I was able to get the back 5 Nutserts set and the Mac's Versatie Track Mounted at the back of the tub! Now I just have to do the front one... will work on that tomorrow!

(Please Ignore the Black Gorilla Tape covering the 2 holes that I screwed up first!)

I like those wheels just as they are. I like that JEEP also.

Here's another picture with center caps installed.




If I remember correctly the aluminum rings are over $100ea. when bought separately.

Borrowed a Bestop Cargo Rack from a friend to see how it might work inside my rig...

This is just about everything I'd take with me on a run (with Basecamp) as far as tools, recovery gear, spare and fluids. About the only thing missing would be a small cooler for lunch. The Action Packers up on the rack will interfere with the back window, but will more than likely remove the side and rear windows when I hit the trail. I think this will work fairly well as long as everything is strapped down well.

Man I want to make it out to JV sometime. Maybe this fall or next year, whenever I finish the 60/14b project.
