Anyone Powder Coated Their Stock Wheels?

Heres the thing, I dont have a bunch of money to throw into the Jeep but I still would like to do some stuff with it. Between the Jeep, the bike and my other hobbies I wont be having any extra cash to throw down for some SRT Reps. I can get some PC done for pretty cheap so I was thinking about getting my wheels PC...anyone happen to have any pics or comments on this?

I really want to do this too. I have a friend who powder coats so I can get it cheap. I'll let you know when I get it done. Probably won't be too soon though.

Damn that's a really reasonable price. Anywhere in particular you got them done at?

I'm in the same boat as the OP, wanted some black SRT reps but don't have cash for new wheels and tires. I am in the process of plasti-dipping my wheels. Looks okay but definitely not satisfying my rep needs.

Damn your wk looks good, thats exactly what im going for. What wattage are your HID fogs? I about to put some in mine but have heard that the housing in the fogs is to small for 55w cause they get to hot.

Now that I have finally got my HIDs in my lowbeams to stop flickering with a relay harness im ready to do the fogs.

Whoever you heard that from is incorrect. Youll be fine putting HIDs in the fog lights
