Picked these up off craigs list, 2012 Wrangler wheels. Wont be able to put them on for another couple weeks for a test fit. If its close i might try grinding down the caliper slightly to avoid using spacers. If not i might try and find some 3/4'' inch spacers

I forgot to thank you! So, Thanks for the great idea!
No thanks needed brother

I've been needing to do this as well. I only have 82,000 miles on mine, but I keep getting codes every once in a while saying it is the valve. I checked autozone and they said $35 which I thought was good, but maybe I'll need to go to the dealer instead!

i know the 4xguard website states that the rails for the matrix can be cut down for a more stubby customized look instead of being the whole width of the vehicle, but has anybody done this? I've never seen any pics on here that i can think of and i was wondering how it would look...

Got my estimate back today... just over $3000 for repairs. Quote called for a new Laredo bumper & air-dam at just over $500.

Was thinking of just putting on an SRT-8 bumper on. I'm seeing SRT8 bumpers on Ebay for $400+ plus S&H. Was also kinda thinking of just going black with the bumper and grill. Then painting the forward facing flat parts on the quarter panels & hood a matching black too. Maybe taking the curved parts of the hood and paint them black and have them fade to grey as they get flat toward the windshield. Could be just crazy thinking too...
