I am ok with the grill as is right now. What I would love is the Rubi hood :rock::devil:
I have asked Santa (to give her time to make it happen) for a Rubicon hood for Christmas. I really looks great

I have black plasti dipped sport s wheels on billet silver jlus and just bought this rubi wheels/tires mainly for the 33" tires. Should I mount the 33" tires on the sport s wheels and sell the rubi wheels or mount rubu wheels and tires and sell jlus parts.

New wheels & tires on rubicon they came off:

You should mount which ever you think looks best. You'll probably get a better resale value on the Rubi parts, but not a ton.

It costs about $100 more for the tire swap if I go with the sport s wheels and will prob have to redo the plasti dip. I figure I could get $400 for the rubi wheels and $100 for sport s. Agree?

Rustoleum makes a peel coat, which is also the same, but comes in metallic gloss colors. Got a couple of cans at Tractor Supply on clearance so I can test it out on the SRT wheels and see what color we want to paint them.

Anyone considering Powder coat. Cons anyone? I have a quote for $75 per rim. I really like the rubicon base rims but in all black. Those are looking great!:like:
Powder is much more durable than paint, and that’s not a bad price if they do good work. You could always see if they’ll do all 5 wheels for $300. Worst they can say is ‘no.’

My first Plastidip project came out great, I must say!

Came out nice! You going to dip the Jeep emblems too? I did, along with the Trail Rated badge. And swapped the stock antenna for a shorter black one. Got rid of ALL the silver :rock:
