  1. Yup, I like them a lot. Look good on most any Jeep IMO. And affordable.
  2. Funny that while I only like Rubicon Moabs on 97+ Cherokees (as far as recent style wheels on older Jeeps), I really like Quadratec's Rubicon Extremes and think they would look very good on MJs/XJs. Just the subtle difference of having some detail on the spokes and a little more offset. They are similar to Mammoth Boulders which I also really really like. SCguy has them on his MJ and they look excellent IMO. The Boulders look like a cross between the Rubicon Extremes and AEV Pintlers https://www.quadratec.com/p/quadratec/rubicon-xtreme-wheel-5x5/gun-metal-gray-wrangler-jk-jl-gladiator-jt https://www.extremeterrain.com/mammoth-boulder-charcoal-17-9-J100615.html
  3. Yup, knew there would be the need for adapters..........

  5. Smokey, I agree the current OE wheels need more offset. Not a fan of Moabs on an MJ either, yet I do think they look good on 97+ XJs.
  6. Were you trying to post a picture?
  7. Starting to see more and more OE Gladiator parts for sale as people are modding these rigs right off the lot. LOTS of Rubicon wheel sets and suspension pieces out there, and prices are coming down. Curious if anybody has put a set of these wheels on their MJ and/or have a picture of one they can share. I'm pretty sure I saw a picture recently but can't remember where. I love my 15" Ravines and how they look on an MJ. Most of the modern OE wheels look out of place on an MJ to me, but it also depends on the overall look of the truck and sometimes it jives with me. Hell, I've got a set of Turbines waiting to be cleaned up that I've considered swapping to. All that said, it seems clear that 17's are definitely the most common wheel on Jeeps now and there are a ton of tire sizes available on 17's. There are some super cheap deals on wheels and/or tires out there as new owners are immediately doing substantial upgrades on tires and suspension. After dropping $50-60k on a Rubicon and another $6-10k on mods, I'm seeing several listings with the "just get it out of my garage" pricing on it. Earlier today I saw a set of 4 online with only a claimed 1000 miles on them for $250. For that kind of price it's tempting to grab a set "just in case" for later. Pics are the standard Rubicon wheel and the other one is a Mopar Performance Parts wheel that I think would look awesome on an MJ.
  8. Have you tried chrome cleaner/polish for the windshield and grill/header panel? Like Eagle One Never Dull?
  9. Up to you Aidan, but as noted above by Pete the ZJ drag link has a slightly different geometry and has had reports of binding and other issues. Late model XJs had the beefier drag link same diameter as the ZJ V8 version and has the same geometry as your MJ. Moog DS1238 is the part number for that. ZJ tie rod and trackbar work great, although I am of the same feeling as AZJeff on the track bar, not a fan of the OE frame side mount so it's worth considering a good aftermarket unit that also comes with the frame side bracket to replace the factory design.
  10. I don't know what it's like in other states, but in VA if you lose your title you just go to DMV and get a replacement. If the vehicle is registered to you and you have valid ID, including your VA issued photo ID, they print you a new one. Simple as that. So when I see something for sale that says "no title", somewhere along the way of that vehicle being sold or "acquired", it was either abandoned and unable to locate the owner or it changed hands without the intent to pay sales tax or have it registered as a street legal vehicle. I've never tried to buy a vehicle that had no title, but if I did, even if I didn't plan to drive it on the street i.e. an off-road vehicle, I still want the seller to have a reasonable explanation why there is no title. Just weird to me.....
  11. I just placed an order, paid through Paypal..........we'll see.
  12. LOL.......agree 100%, I get the two of them backwards all the time when recommending to others. Had to do the same just now before I posted LOL!!
  13. Pike, this is correct and I researched the crap out of it before I did it. I have done this on mine with these parts. You'll also need (s) ES2079S sleeves for both your tie rod and drag link (tie rod end). ES3096L will require (2) pieces also.
  14. Pete, it's the tie rod that's interchangeable without any issues. You can use a ZJ GC drag link, but it has slightly different geometry than the MJ/XJ and some have reported some steering issues based on lift etc. The late model XJs offered the same thickness/diameter drag link but with XJ/MJ geometry. DS1238 is the XJ beefy replacement vs DS1310 for the ZJ V8 version.
