Actually, I got a package deal on them through the dealership where I bought my Jeep. The Ruffino Helix wheels are exactly the same as Rockstar 2... just a different cap.

RHuckster Didn't actually do much today to Willey except wash & wax. I do however have a pretty busy week on him this next week. Things to arrive this week: 10,000lbs tow strap, Drake Off Road Black Shift Knobs(transfer case & auto shifter), Rugged Ridge Black All-Terrain Cargo Liner, M.O.R.E. Black Dead Pedal & a few other minor little things.

Mine have been in over a year. Ran outside after looking at those pictures and mine are good as new. I put both Tereaflex spacers and the factory one back on both front wheels and the 2" one and factory spacer back on the rear wheels. All still good.

Trapjaw Installed my ARB Intensity Spot and Flood. Trying to decide if I should drill into the bumper to eliminate the need to use the AEV light bracket and go with just the ARB stainless bracket. Any thoughts?

Em52 Ace sliders + Synergy steering stabilizer relocation.... Not sure if I'm going to keep the stabilizer there, don't like the angle the bushing insert gets twisted in, doesn't look lined up correct to me.... Maybe its just me though?

This guy's way over complicating it. Literally, all you need to do is yank it off really hard. Even the factory manual says just to pull it off. Not continual pulling pressure, but a sharp yank straight up. I took the top off, stood with one foot on either side of the center console, and gave it a couple hard tugs. Came right off.
