Re: Are the JGC wheel covers replacable?

If im not ,mistaken, the center cap isnt the issue, yes those just pop in and out, I believe hes talking about the whole face of the stock chrome wheel

Re: Are the JGC wheel covers replacable?

Yeah, the damage is around the outside of that center cap. All the chrome is cracking off and that raised rim around the cap is deformed. It doesn't look all that bad, but I've always been really meticulous about my Jeeps.

Thanks for the idea on the insurance! Not sure if I have that level of coverage. I guess it's about a ~300 wheel. Might be easier just to fess up some cash and get a new one or swap it with the spare.

Does anyone know if they are replacable? Thanks!!!

I worked at the Warren truck Plant in MI building Rams/Dakotas. On the Ram 20" chrome clad wheel, it is glued on, and permanent. I'm not sure if it's the same process on Jeeps, but why would it be different?
