Looks like Amazon has several different replacement rotors sold individually anywhere from 10 bucks to over 100. If they have them then they should be readily available from several sources I'd say. I haven't read anyone on here having any issues with having to replace them, but if anyone would know about that, it would be ok Fish for sure. Riding in the swamps and jumping gators is pretty damn rough on em so he'd know all about it and I haven't read a single thread of his mentioning replacing any. I'm sure it happens but not a common thing. How many do you replace on your vehicle, unless you run the pads till it's metal on metal and destroy one and have no choice. I'd be safe to say if you get a Higlifter kit and need a single rotor you'd be able to get one without any issues so go ahead and order a kit, slap it on and give her what for man! Just my 2 cents worth.

He can sell those stocks to someone wanted 12"s for a Rancher or 300, and for the plastics, I'm still fingers crossed for tan!

Looks great!

Hey @mac102004, what kinda tires are those? They're Interco of some sort or another, but I've never seen a set like that with the sidewall lugs. I bought them like they're pictured (worn out) because I wanted the 12" wheels.

Vampire ASX? I think they are called. Only come in 26” and the side lugs are only on one side of the tire, so they sell them in left and right versions lol pretty oddball but I think they may still make them?
