I tried from inside and it came out darker then it really was.
Tried from the outside but it came out brighter then it really was.
Took me 20 minutes just to figure out how to turn off the flash on the little digital camera. LOL.

That is always my problem, finding a welder to help me finish my project!
This was my last project that needed welding.

Yeah I wouldn't trust myself welding something as crucial as that. Floor pans I could probably weld but I've never welded anything that thin (I'm used to 1/8"~1") but he offered to come by and weld em all up so I'm not gonna turn down the free offer.

What's everybody's opinions on these? Are they worth the $150? I'm thinking about picking em up Thursday if they're still available.

Its a little bit harder to find tires with 16" wheels. They cost a bit more as well. But the wheels look nice.
I beat my Jeep up too much to get stuff that looks nice. Lol

I sold the stock 16" wheels on my Rubicon for 15" because of the higher tire prices and most tires for 16" wheels are E rated and too stiff.

Those are the '98 Grand Cherokee 5.9 wheels which also came on the 60th Anniversary XJ's.
Personally I don't care for them but that is me.
That being said I don't think that is an unrealistic price.
Is that for 4 or 5?
See the thing with me is that I have to have a full size matching spare.
Gets used when I do my yearly tire rotation.
If it is only 4 finding a 5th one could be a little challenging.

It's all 5. My only thing is, I like the factory canyon wheels but they're getting up there in price around here.

I like the Canyons but just so you know, I didn't know this until a couple years ago, the ones a TJ are different then the ones on a ZJ.
I think the TJ's are wider. 8" as opposed to 7".
Somebody here pointed that out. I thought they were all the same.
I think that is reasonable for the 5.9 wheels.
I paid $80 for one set of 4 Icons, 16"X7", and $100 for a second set of 4.
Hoping to get them on my XJ someday but want to pick out the best 5 and get them trued first.
