Thanks @rhobll;

This seems to be the general consensus so far, from those who have seen the before & after.

Thanks guys, I liked them when I saw them on e-bay, but now that they are on, they are really growing on me - and once again, they are original - haven't seen another XK running these yet.

I like the new "slots" better myself. So funny Blue, did you own any old school muscle back in the day? The original centerlines u had and these lead me to believe so.

No I didn't Trevor, but, I did see a lot of old school restored muscle cars with Centerlines on them as a kid in Long Island, where I grew up.

I always liked how they looked, that's why I bought them.

But their time has come to pass & these new American Racing off-road rims are really growing on me.

IMHO I like the old ones better, I was actually looking at similar ones to your old ones but got a smoking deal on some rubicon rims/tires so I went with them! I do like the rest of your truck however!!
