Really? I just gave away a set of 4 ecco's mounted and balanced... Didn't know anyone would actually pay for those. Although they are way better than the industrial strainers that came on my XJ when I got it. Not sure what those were called, but they were pretty ugly... Anyone know what they called these wheels?

Yeah I threw my ecco's with 235's on Craigslist cheap and got 0 hits.

Lifted, Locked, Stiffened

Icons are by far the best stock XJ wheel with Ecco's in close second. Idk why anyone wouldn't want Ecco's

He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

Did a little testing today, only video I got. Sorry for the poor quality it was my Android, at least it decided to work today. Both front tires lock and pull. I wouldn't have ever tried some of the holes we hit today even with the locker, if I didn't have the winch but it blew through like it was made to. And these are just ATs with 28 psi in them. Can't wait til I get some real tires.

You guys like those better or the ravines? I have a set of 5 ravines at home in almost perfect condition. I've debated selling them but keep thinking I'll run them someday. Really like the look of those wheels.
I need 16 rims and Ravines are 15". I need either Icons or Moabs which I like Moabs better.

Moabs are wider. Icons are 7" rims. A guy in Flint has a set (5) of grey icons with tires for $150...

I like Eccos. What can I say. Think those are the 10 hole in the picture.

Today I changed out my steering damper. 20 years old, 51k miles. After getting the factory taper bolt out of the drag link, I himmed and hawed about how to get it out of the old damper eyelet for a while. Then I realized the new damper came with a bolt-on replacement in the box. Felt kind of dumb about that. But its done, and I got to hammer on some stuff. So it was a good day.
