Ha-ha...yeah, yeah, I get it...the 80's called and want their wheels back.
Those wheels have been LOW on the priority list, but I do, in fact, hate them. I have a set of round hole ones that are spray painted black to put on. At least they're 15x8 unlike the saw blades. I'll get them put on soon enough.
Justice, I have been looking at underbody protection. I think I'll be re-routing the exhaust so that it goes over the driveshaft instead of under the oil pan. Once I do that, I'll make a skid plate for the transfer case and figure something for the gas tank. The spare tire used to be under it, so it's UP in there. I should be able to make something using the bolt holes for the spare tire "hoist."
First things first, I need to get my OBA installed so I can power the rear locker and make sure the tank is protected where I'm mounting it under the body. I also sprung a leak in my 6 month old aluminum radiator at the top row. I have a new one coming in under warranty, and I need to get the mounting clamps tightened up so I can ensure the mount isn't what is causing the damage. There is a little more play than I'm comfortable with in there.
Thanks for the comments! Now, off to get a little dirty...
