Those are Dick Cepek's? I'd be pissed... I'm sure they're a hair more than the $50-100/each steel wheels many of us run.

That's crazy man, I'd be in contact with them for sure. Mine have held up to two and a half years of wheeling and daily driving so far and still look–aside from some scratches–brand new...

Where did you get the metal cowl mounted part of your intake and the cost?

For rear especially there can be multiple times you may need to adjust, unless you blast out all possible mods and dial it to perfection all at once.

For front I am currently in the process of constant fiddling between caster and pinion, trying to get drivability sorted out.
I don't have near the patience to do this stuff. Which is why I really wish I lived close to people that do this all the time. Not your typical offroad shop.

I'd gladly give a couple cases of beer to set everything up right. Then I would finally be satisfied that I haven't screwed anything up.

I got fortunate to meet and know jeepers who have done it all before me...makes it seem a lot easier when someone else can explain it all and you can see what they've done and how they've done it. That's not to say some of it's not painstaking, but is also rewarding at the end of the day.

Can you afford the car? Have I provided you all the information you need on the car? Do you like the car? Then buy the car.

Yea they're Dick Cepeck dc-2's... I paid 95 each almost 2 years ago. I'm not real happy this will be the second time I've had to send a wheel back.

I had this one replaced last year after chasing a vibration for almost a year which turned out to be an out of round wheel....
the 4 that are almost 2 years old still look new, this one has spent probably 5-6 months hanging on the back of the Jeep..?
