Where can I purchase a set of these?
Thanks
We got a set of 6 a little over a year ago on-line (ebay). There are at least two versions of them that all use the same part number.
Four of our six fit perfectly, the other two were a different version and we had to do some trimming to get them to work properly.
The problem is the slits already provided did not line up with the CTIS configuration on the wheels, we simply had to cut/modify the slits to get the 'hubcap' to fit correctly. Not difficult.

I didn't even bother to trim mine. It only takes a minute to remove the covers and I really can't say that I've ever had to access the valve stem or CTIS assembly.

They were thrown away in the field, I hear. Motor pool didn't want to mess with them. You could find them at auction for $80 a set but they have long since dried up. The last ones I saw on eBay were fetching like $150 ea. I seriously doubt there are any left out there (that are not on someone's truck).

If you want covers I would take your spare and drop it off at a machine shop. Have them just cut you flat disks/wheel rings. They look just as cool, won't collect mud, etc, and will offer just as much protection tho the CTIS hoses. *See pic for inspiration

Then for the stand-offs and bolts, order up some thread coupling nuts and some bolts (Granger Tools was the best price I found for couplings). *See pic for the OEM bolt compared to the coupling nut + bolt

tis my plan but will make out of plywood covered with bed liner at first. hope to experiment some with slots, groves, fins or???? to blow air up over side walls more to lower tire temps.
