I can't believe that I just spent a crap load of money on seat covers. I could have probably gotten a winch for how much the covers were. Hopefully there are as good as everyone talks about.

Im looking for a cheap but nice set that i can throw on my TJ to sell it with so i can keep my grabbers.
Maybe, I'm a little confused though, are you just looking for wheels? Merrick came and grabbed the aluminum outlaw 2 wheesl of my expo this weekend and exchanged them for his black steel wheels. If you wanted them, the only catch is find anything to trade me with to keep it on the ground and rolling. Don't care if they match or not, don't care about anything as long as they hold air. You come grab them, pay to have them swapped, bring them back. Not sure if that's up your alley though...

Side note, holy crap am I busy the next two nights in a row!!!! 1st on the to do list tomorrow night is splice some wires, set the fuel pump back in the cell and see if it fires up. If it does, bolt it all back up and we should be a go for Sat. Then after that, holy crap on the expo stuff!!!! I wrote out a to do list for tomorrow and friday night. Will prep race truck sat morning. If I can pull this all off I should be looking pretty darn good on the expo build! Hoping I can work on steering real build or at least mock up on Sunday!

Oh man, I almost hope they don't make that! I would have a tough decision to make, lol. I have resisted trading my car for a GC thus far....

No clue, Merrick may know. They just kinda showed up on my exploder that's destined for doom this past Sat morning. They're ummmm black and round and 15" in diameter, beyond that, I have no clue anything else about them other then if they stay on the ride, they'll end up being donated or scrapped or something in about a month. Find any picture of Merricks TJ before this past weekend, it's those wheels.

I have no idea what the backspacing is. I bought them on Craigslist a few years ago and put them on and they worked for me very well.
