Re: Benn0's build up thread

After 5 months of waiting the excitement is wearing off a little, bit pissed it didn't arrive for my Fraser trip, and now missed my straddie trip, but once the car is here I'll be keen to get it fitted up.

Re: Benn0's build up thread

I do like those wheels.

Did they come with the Off Road pack, or did you order just the wheels??

You will run out of bits to buy before your Jeep arrives at your current rate

Re: Benn0's build up thread

The wheels are the Mopar 18" Night Fever 10 spoke Rims, they are shown on the front of one of the accessory booklets. You have to order them separate, I managed to find these ones cheap ($275ea) in stock at a dealer in Vic. I was quoted $490ea (I think?) through the local dealer.

Re: Benn0's build up thread

Why new TMPS sensors?
Interested in how you go fitting the Couplertec, that's on my build list :-)
Other parts look great!

Re: Benn0's build up thread

Well I'll be fitting the rubber to the rims before the car arrives, so need new TPMS sensors. I could take them off the wheels on the car, but means popping the tyres off, putting a new valve stem in, then refitting the rubber and balancing. Easier to just buy new ones. Then when I sell the originals I can sell them with the sensors installed.

The couplertec seemed like the obvious choice:
