I was lucky enough to score 5 Ravines for only $150, and sold off the old 5 spokes on Craigslist for $100. IMHO the Classic 5 Spokes never looked good on Wranglers but seem to look ok on XJs. Good thing for me I'm just renting in this subdivision but as soon as I buy something it's got to be in either a no HOA community or one with minimal covenants and fees. This place is so bad that even having a lettered truck or vehicle is against the rules! No contractors or Mary Kay ladies allowed.
I sold my original stock 15x6" steel wheels for something like $50. recently. (20 years later) I also sold some decent 15x8.5" aluminum wheels for $250. Sold my old 35x12.5R15's for another $200. I ended up replacing them with 15x7" 5-Spoke steel wheels from a TJ or XJ for $75. I like the no nonsense wheels. Then bought some 33x10.5R15's.
The Jeep is very dependable and I wouldn't really have any problems taking it cross country. I just hate getting into it after a storm as it's like walking into a humid jungle...
