They're actually standard issue on 03 TJ rubicon "tomb raider" editions. They are 15x8s and are made by Alcoa. You may be able to get them somewhere but they only made 1000 sets of them for the rubis.

Got them off of a fellow forum member for 450. Couldn't be happier they look great.

I've thought about it but I actually prefer the standard equipment. Whenever I see that style of taillight I think "jeep". No matter what they are on... Truck, tractor, trailer etc. plus if I smash one I can get one pretty much anywhere. Even wal mart has em here. They just look like they should be there... Like the grille and round headlights... Just iconic...

Finally installed new neoprene seat covers to replace the six year old neoprenes. Christmas present from my bride. Look pretty nice and I do like them.

Got some of the "winter" off the Jeep, trying to make it last.

Ended up changing my trans fluid after about what seemed like a quart came out of the fill plug when I was just planning to check the level. It was all milky brown so the PO must have sucked up a bunch of water during an off road adventure. I have only put about 300 miles on it since I have had the Jeep and noticed that it was starting to feel different while I was shifting. We will see how it goes from here on out. She is full of Royal Purple now.

Finished Installing Rockford T142s in a set of versa pods in the rear; Polk 5.25" Components in the kick panels using Nalin MFG tweeter mounts....sound is awesome!

Versa Pods


Nalin MFG Tweeter Mount (after paint)


Wiring the right crossover


Mounted (with a little bit of blue ambiance....ha)


After I get the new sound bar and install I'm officially done with the audio.

Funny, I'm actually doing the same thing. Went back to State, leaving the color matched Nalin brackets drying in the garage. Had the 5251's wired into my room stereo, and they sound great. Also have the same blue LED lighting.

Awesome! They worked out really well, the only issue (if you want to call it that) was where to mount the crossover, but it wasn't that big of a deal. I used 3M double sided outdoor tape to mount....stuff rocks, it has the red peel back.
