Hello,


I'm new to the forum as well. Do you have the 4.7 V8 or the 5.7 Hemi? Have you setup your U-Connect yet?

I'm back at work at Norfolk Naval Base now which is just a stones throw away from VA Beach, hit me up if you need help with anything.

Hey,


that's a good looking Jeep. Love that front bumper and rims. Yeah, we're neighbors and i may take you up on that.
I'll be here from now until April 16th.

April 16th I'll be heading to San Diego for school for about 5 weeks.

You can PM here or e-mail me - I'll e-mail you my e-mail address.

My Centerline rims have finally reached the end of their life span and they are starting to give me problems.

After 6 years of use on 2 different Jeeps, I've had 2 of them develop very small, pin-hole size cracks on me in the last 6 weeks.

I wound up having to get them tig-welded almost completely around the entire circumference of the rim. This was on a line where the manufacturer, apparently, had milled too deeply and over time, with stress & wear, the area that was milled too deeply, slowly started to separate and eventually a very small, pinhole/hairline crack developed.

While they are working fine now after being tig-welded - it's just a matter of time before the other 2 crack and I don't need to be worried about my rims failing under stress - or worse yet, under load.

So, as much as I love them, they have to go.

I ordered a set these:

Bought a set of 4 for $700.00 w/free shipping.

I just got off the phone with the company - Custom Wheel Outlet - and they seem pretty confident I won't have any rubbing issues even though the back-spacing is only 4.5 inches as opposed to the 5.5 inches of back spacing that I have now, so, we'll see how they fit when they get here toward the end of next week.

I'll post some pics and a write-up once they're on.

Dang, I was just in VA Beach/Norfolk area Saturday. I wish I'd have signed up sooner, I would have liked to check out a couple modified XKs and maybe pick your brain.

That would have been cool.

Tomorrow I'm leaving to drive down to Chattahoochee, Florida to go camping for 4 days, I'll probably be driving right by you - but I know the weather is supposed to be kind of sketchy - mix of rain & snow I heard.

I probably won't get there until Thursday evening.
