Picked up my new wildtrak grille from dealer yesterday.
Just an FYI, replacement grilles come without letters and hardware.
I'm going to have to transfer everything off the old one.
dropped it off at the paint shop, picyures to come soon.
How much did the grill set you back Bill? So it came the same shadow black that's on the Wildtrak regular without needing to paint it?

$420 black plastic. Doesn't seem as glossy/shiny as my black outer banks grille.

Hey, Bill, do you still have the OEM OBX 18" WHEELS? I could use an extra set for my off-road tires vs road tires.

Wife is happy today. After the runaround about a license plate and having to send a letter of explanation in we finally got her personalized plate. She wanted topless but it was already gone and used. So we ended up with topl as.

Looks good. I wasn't sure if I'd like it as you were talking about it. Clean looking.

I was just looking at those today. Do you like them? I have an EB so I am not too fond of the stick to hold up the hood.
SG, I think I just found my Christmas present when the bride ask. She gonna be surprised as I usually say "it doesn't matter". :)

Then we went to discount tire and my son had the wheels and tires ready.
35 x 12.5 x 18 bfgoodrich ko2's on black rhino shredder Wheels 18 x 9.5 with +12mm offset.
What a change, doesn't even look the same. We are super happy the way it turned 6.

Hey guys! Great build really like the color, grill, wheels, and tires. I just wanted to ask if you have any issues with the poke of the tire? I am getting an OBX and kind of wanted Mickey Thompson Classic III but it has -12 offset. I knew it would poke... yours has +18 offset and it looks like it has 1.5 inch past fender. I have been hearing that mud and rocks have been hitting doors and even handle chips... I don't have mine yet but hopefully by YE as I have a VIN but never changed to soft top. Any guidance is really helpful and appreciated as I want to change wheels. Not as concerned about the look as I am any problems.
