Scored a brand new set of 5 Dick Cepek Torque 17x8.5 wheels for $600 total. I'm pretty excited about them, I wasn't going to buy wheels yet but I can sell the new spacers that I bought and only have a $400 difference over stock, I can't pass on a deal like that. The cheapest I can find them online was $145 per wheel plus shipping.

You better put some wide tires on them to try to help protect that silver face along the edge if you're planning on wheeling....that edge will get messed up pretty quick! Other than that they're sweet!

Loaded up a WJ with suspension damage on a trailer and towed it 15 miles to get it fixed. Good work out for the WJ.

The wheels are 8.5" and the tires I ordered are 11.5" wide so they should be ok but we run on a lot of gravel bars, chances are they won't stay scratch free! Lol

Took the WK wheeling in a creek, and over some large rocks, have to say I'm impressed the 3.7L and QT1 made it through it all no problem.

I'm glad to hear that. I haven't put my 3.7L WK through any real offroad tests yet and I was pretty nervous about how it would perform. I should ahve gotten the Hemi/QDII

Got it dirty. It has to be either spotless or muddy. I hate the dusty/I between look lol. I'm still trying to get used to driving with a safe mode transmission so I had to pull over 4 times on the way home just to turn it off and try to get it into gear. Did manage to climb a "curb" though and make it to the park before I got home
