Very nice, those wheels are pretty sweet, where can I find a set of those at? Great trail pictures, the thumbnails are pretty small though.

Sorry about the thumbnail pics. New to the pic posting thing. Soon as I get it figured out I'll fix it <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />.

Got those wheels through a retail 4x4 shop here in Calgary. Should be able to get them from anyone that deals with Dick Cepek tires/wheels.

Great pics, I love wheelin in the snow, great fun. The last time I got to do it I had to break the trail in about 18 inches, I made it up the hill but one could follow me. The full sized Blazers and Broncos had to take the easy way up. I love the DCII wheels also, I've been waiting for them to come out in the metric 6 lug pattern for my 05 F150. I hope they have them by the time my tires ware out.

Dennis

Keep up the fun, Dennis

They look bigger than 29's, thought you might have got a new set. I'm in the hunt for a set of 33's or 34's to go on the Jeep, but 17" rubber is a bit more pricey than 15".

We should try to do a Edmonton/Calgary sporty owners and former owners run this summer! maybe Defboy will have his back together soon!

Hey Everet...bumpers, rails & skids are all custom. Left the stock bumpers with a buddy so he could form the new bumpers to resemble them. All 1/4" steel...STOUT!!!!

Iron...if yer going to mount new rubbers on the stock JK wheels it's gunna be more $$ for sure. Maybe consider after market 15" wheels so you can use less expensive rubbers <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />.

Sorry to hijack. But I recently saw a post somewhere that they couldn't go to 15" rims on a new JK due to the calipers and rotors being a lot bigger than the TJ.

Food for thought.
