    Joe the New guy here trying to fix a few things that have crept up on the old girl.

    Here is my 05 XL we have owned it since 08 with 52,000 miles on it and it now has 163,000 on the clock. Looking to fix the rear suspension if it can be reasonably done. It's a nice riding rig but it has had a few costly fixes too. Thankful for extended warranty!! Tranny, front diff, electrical, 2-3 shift solenoid, alternator, steering problems as well.

    Incubus poltergeist wheels. They look great at night when lights hit the machine surface and chrome caps. They cost me $560 shipped to my door. BBwheelsonline.

    Man, $560 is a great price.

    That's why I bought them! They stay clean real well. I need to get some center caps that I can paint or powder coat so the Midwest salt in winter doesn't turn them into rusty chrome. I put grease on them last year for winter and that did the trick.

    I'm with you on that one. Prior to moving to New Mexico I lived the last 4 years in Kansas and the weather just tore my rims up. The wheels themselves look pretty decent actually, but the center cap and lugnuts are all rusted pretty good...
