You know, I thought they were fakies when I ordered them but they’re true bead locks.
Thanks. They are one of my top contenders. Appreciate the response.
That’s the beauty of this wheel, you can run it simulated or actual bead locks. I’ve been running it as actual bead lock for almost 2 years, no issues....of course I had to clear it with Colby...........:facepalm:.
Here’s the catch, you have to buy the bead lock rings separate at around 100.00 ea.

Nice to have choices :like: So when ordering do they come with simulated ring attached? It appears @Stormin’ Moorman are setup as simulated today but hard to tell. The extra $ for rings is definitely ouch

Yes, they come with a plastic simulated ring that protects the secondary lip used for real bead lock ring......Yeah... a little steep, but still a lot cheaper than kmc machetes..... lol...

I've been looking at the machined beadlocks and they are all pricey. Kinda like these: (they only show pics of 4drs)

Gloomy rainy day, so decided to change diff oil front and rear. Only at 8000 miles, but as much as we wheel it, and as much as I use the lockers, I decided to go ahead to check things out....

As you can see, everything is good, nothing jumping out at me, some filings clinging to the magnet in drain plug, but no chunks or pieces. The oil still looks good, and the front was actually cleaner than rear that’s in pic. Had to get this done without Colby, apparently she doesn’t work on rainy days.....:) We’re headed out, gonna be a mud bath out there today.....:facepalm:.

there back off the bikini top would flap in the wind at 50mph so I had to improvise a solution...... worked!!! I also had to lengthen the straps on the windbreaker so they would work with the 2 door....

What happens if you get a flat, are they easy to repair? Will any tire shop fix them? Does it cost more or less than "normal" wheels?

You can do it yourself, but it’s a pain in the ass. Some tire shops will do them, but it’s best to use a 4x4 shop. And it cost more to have them mounted and balanced, because it’s best to have them road force balanced. So if the road force number is to high, they have to take tire back off and spin it 180 degrees. The bolts in the ring have to be torqued in a certain sequence so that’s what makes it so time consuming, which is why it cost more.
