Thumbs up FS: Milled Aluminum AL Wingtop Vents (part 2!!!)

In collaboration with David (Buckon37s), figured it was time to bring back an oldie but a goodie – the Milled Aluminum Wingtop Vents. I kicked myself for not getting multiple sets at the time (I should have known my Defenders would multiply), so this was a good excuse to take on the project. It was also another good reason to replace another weak, plastic, factory part* with something that will hold up proper (*for reference of another upgrade see: http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=44470).

Bottom line, if you already have a set – like I do – you know they’re awesome. If you don’t have a set, just ask around…it’s a great upgrade, and not only dresses up your Defender but is exceptionally more durable than the cheap plastic vents (again just ask anyone that’s had to stand or lean on their wingtops for any reason…wheeling/wrenching/etc…the plastic factory vents break at the slightest weight put on them):

$170 SHIPPED (continental US) for a SET (1 pair) of the milled aluminum wingtop vents powdercoated black (i.e. one LH & one RH). This is if you do “PayPal gift” (i.e. no fees). If you want to send it regular PayPal and not gift/payment owed that is fine…but the cost is going to be $175 to cover the fees/etc. PM me for payment details.

I also have a very limited amount of sets in bare/natural aluminum (shown below), those will be available for $160 shipped (conus). I figured in case anyone wants to “customize” their own color or paint them, this would give you the chance…though I would not recommend leaving them out exposed to the elements in bare aluminum for any duration of time.

Lastly, if there is any interest in custom powdercoat colors I would entertain requests, and can use some of the above “bare” sets to have sets made up in just about any color you want (there have been a couple of requests for a silver color for those with dark/black trucks). The final cost would be “TBD” on this and would have to be quoted on a case-by-case basis…not to mention there will be a bit of turnaround time on these, and would likely be greater than the $170/set price quoted above (since they would be a one-off set rather than larger quantities).

Ready for immediate shipping…get ‘em while they last!

verrrrry nice. When I started reading the thread I figured it was going to be a group buy or something that you'd need to hit a minimum, so I was confused.

BUY THESE, PEOPLE!!

Love mine. Very strong and look great too! This is definitely something that LR should have included in the original design.

Anyone that's paid in full currently (which is quite a few of you), your vents will ship today...

I'll be on the road out of town (Atlanta) starting tomorrow, but should be back in Friday - any other payments that come in either will ship on Friday or on Tues after the holiday (since UPS/USPS are closed on Monday).

Any payments that come in this evening, I should be able to get everything boxed up and ready to ship so would go out tomorrow (Thursday).

Thanks!
