Default DIY beadlocks 15"

$250 shipped.


I made an extra set of beadlocks because I need money to fix my trans in the CJ $225 shipped.

These are made to sit inside the lip on a 15" steel rim to make welding easier.

Will trade for good working TH350 with NP208 output shaft. 4x4 trans. :-)

Rings are made from 1/4" steel plate (I can burn them from 3/16 AR400 material as well - the AR plate is tougher and is almost as strong as the 1/4" but lighter and more expensive).

I can also make more plain designs that would be a touch cheaper (less burn time = cheaper) but the ones pictured here are the ones I have available. The pic with the tire mounted is of the set on my YJ.
Can knock a bit off the price if you want to pick them up rather than ship too.

I would be interested in a set. Not really a skull guy though. Maybe some with some holes in them. Does the inner ring sit inside the wheel lip?

It does sit inside the wheel lip. I can burn some out with just holes for probably ~200 (have to figure out the burn time, but probably less than the skulls).

Still working on getting time to do the CAD for some rings with just holes- tell me what style you want and I will make them, but I am out of town all next week. $200 + actual shipping costs or $225, whichever is less or pickup is free in NW Indiana/South Chicagoland

Lowered price a bit because I think I am a touch high, then again I am not sure how much shipping will kill me- I sold a set of four shocks and it was $40 shipping and I lost out on that one!

Make me an offer- I want these gone and I need money for a trans!

*** Disclaimer *** This is only my second set of beadlocks, the ones I have work great- also no body feel sorry for me that I need money for a trans, I make plenty and have an awesome job but I want my CJ fixed and the fun money is all gone this month due to other stuff. No sob story here- just a guy trying to come up with some extra fun money to dump into his toys.

Make me an offer- I want them gone and I have enough steel purchased to make one more set of 1/4" and one more set of AR400 3/16. :-)

Cool- I replied to your PM. Will be a week before I am back in the office to do the rings with holes, then I have to check the burning backlog, but lately we have had machines sitting idle so probably not a problem.

I'll PM you some drawings of ones with holes N you can pick the one you like on next Monday!
Local pickup I can knock about $40 off the price-
