They looked nice until silly me decided to use the Jeep for its intended purpose. They WILL NOT hold up to rock crawling.
I sold mine within 3 months of ownership.

Hmmm...that might explain the rock rash on my 2010 JKU Pintler wheels.

Love the Purple Haze Jeep too, looks great!!
There are a lot of take take offs wheels for sale in the Chicago area. Anyone asking 2k for Rubi wheels is in fantasy land. They should be no more than 1k for almost new take off wheels with tires.

Is Jeep finished with the 2016 special additions? About a year ago there was a rumor about a Golden Eagle addition. Is there any hope of this happening ?

Thanks man. I am loving it, best color of any vehicle I have ever owned. It literally looks like a different color from every angle and with subtle changes in lighting. Sorry to hear it is not available to order. Maybe its just an allocation issue? Ask your dealer if they will open more for February allocation.

IMHO, they're uncomfortably too similar.

Noticed that myself. Guess it might be best to avoid black on a 75th lol.
I wasn't aware they were going with bronze grill and headlight inserts... not a big fan of those.
