Granite Rooster Good deal. Sounds like you may have gotten a bad batch.. I don't like those dual drilled wheels. At least DTD is making it right.

FloridaFeMan For those that asked what I didn't like about the Pro Comp wheels, I had the Pro Comp 7033's. Although they were made to fit a 5x5 bolt pattern, they were also made to fit another bolt pattern as there was a total of 10 pre-drilled holes on each wheel. They must have been off just a hair because I really had to force the wheel onto the hubs as well as the spare tire carrier. The wheel just didn't sit flush. I really struggled to get the wheels to fit over the bolts. It really took some finesse to get the wheel's 5th hole over the 5th bolt and once I did, it was hard to get the lug fitting for the impact wrench into the lug slot on the wheel. Once I did, I really had to put extra torque on the lug to make the wheel sit flush against the hub (and even then I had concerns that the wheel wasn't sitting flush against the hub). It was even more apparent that there was a problem with the holes matching up when I mounted the spare on the spare tire carrier. Here I could not get the wheel to mount flush which in turn caused a rattle and vibration on any road other than the smooth interstate and even then at times with mild undulations it would invoke a squeaking rattle. I went to a tire shop and had them recheck the mounting as I thought maybe it was me and they confirmed that it was NOT me and there was an issue with the wheels. Fortunately, Discount Tire Direct stood behind their product and no questions asked, immediately sent out the Trackers as a replacement. I will get full refund on the Pro Comps and they are picking up the tab on the shipping costs to return the wheels.

Also, found this cool little Wrangler key chain thing...
Looks good! I like mine a lot..
Cool find on the key chain

Really? What weren't you happy with? My local tire shop can't get the Level 8s, so they suggested ProComp...I haven't bought yet (saving my pennies), so I still have the chance to source elsewhere.

JK LOL I just wanted to say thank you all for your inspiration. I have a separate "build" thread (My Granite Unlimited) so I won't bore anyone with details, but wanted to post a quick pic here of my "end result" (for awhile, anyway). Love the Jeep, and love the color!

Except in my case it would be the JKR as a wheeler, and the JKUR as an expedition/camping rig.

BTW, my wife thinks I'm crazy (but she didn't say "no" yet, so I'm running with it)!

Me too, mostly JKU Saharas and Sports...very few 2 doors, no other GC Rubi's with half doors though! Glad they're not running this color on the 2015s...

Took my JKR out a couple weeks back to find a lake; the only picture I took with the Jeep in it was this one (just the hood):
