Check out www.autoanything.com they are under AMI emblems i'm about to buy another one for my 1 piece RBP lookalike grille. LEt me know if you find the emblems on there. ---------- Post added at 07:08 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:05 PM ---------- Yeah the stt's are pretty good off road also i had a set of 33 13.50's on a 18 inch rim had em on stock and aftermarket rims and only had a 2.25 inch leveling kit. I plan on getting the Super Swamper m-16 the outside tread design is similar but has a military theme and me being Iraq veteran and in military i'm liking them for $1,500 a set of 35 12.50 on r18.
