    Just playin with ideas for beadlocks when I order them from Kert. I kinda like the multi-hole design but wanted something that looks a little meaner with a few more straight lines and pointed corners in the cutouts. I made a ROUGH drawing of a set of rings and just replaced the larger holes with some fat X's...waddya guys think?

    The bland version:

    The colors it'll most closely resemble when it's on the truck:

    the wheels are just the black steelies that I have now. Monster mods is the proper name I believe. I'm just thinking up patterns for the outer ring of a weld-on beadlock from Kert at DIY4x4.

    Looks like:
    XOXO=kisses and hugs
    You must be a big softy at heart.

    j/k most tough guys probably wouldn't think of that, but I thought I'd point it out since your still in R&D just in case it bugs you. :wink1:

    Haha, already thought of that. Figured if I replaced the large holes with the X's, the small holes would be small enough so that nobody would notice. :doah:
