    How to change beadlock ring color?

    Yesterday I received my new beadlock wheels.
    I bought them with a very good price but I don't like the ring color...which kind of color could match with a anvil jku?
    How can I change it? Sand blasting it and then powdercoating ?

    I personally think color matching is a waste if you are going to be playing in the rocks at all, but it will look good until the first trip.

    How to change beadlock ring color?

    Eddie did a short write up in a post here:

    http://wayalife.com/showthread.php?2...-Mud-Grapplers

    I think sand blasting is a good idea so when they get rash you won't see the original color. But I don't think powder coating makes much sense since they will get trashed on the trail. After blasting I would prime and paint with rattle cans like Eddie did. For color, you could match the anvil, go with another gray, or maybe red like the anniversary rubi's did. Anvil is a great color but tough to compliment. I vote for finding a color-matched rattle can like Rubicat.

    OP- I would have the paint stripped off and then repaint them yourself with a can of spray paint. This will allow you to touch them up and cheaper than having it powder coated. I would paint them red cause red looks awesome with anvil

    It is a waste if resqman911 thinks it is a waste.

    I do like colored rings but I thoroughly enjoy my chamber pro rings raw. Your rig looks badass, too.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
