Maybe it has something to do with the earlier moabs and the current ones having different finishes and therefore might have different id or part #'s.

Don't buy these wheels from the dealer. Go to Ebay Motors and search for "Rubicon wheels" if you really want them. You'll save big coin.

03 Moabs have a different finish then the 04 model Moabs. the 03 was a more rough finish and the 04's are a smooth finish.....don't know if there are any other differences.

A LOT of Rubi owners have changed their rims for something else.... DO THIS.

While you're there, look how cheap H2 rims are! Like $50 a rim or less. Rediculous...
