J-20 Hubcaps?

Postby jbaker » Wed Oct 09, 2013 9:27 am

I bought my 1986 J-20 new. I have never seen hubcaps on these. I eventually put a plain set of ford f-250 dog dish caps on it. Did jeep ever have factory caps for the 3/4 tons? I would buy a set if they did. [ if I could find them ]
Thanks

There's a turbine cap that came on the J20s -

Supposedly this is the only type that was used.

My J20 came with some Chevy caps.

I saw also these J20 hubcaps, IIRC only in the 70s not the 80s, available as an option or included in some packages like the pioneer package below
By the way if someone can school me about the difference between hubcaps and wheel covers? wheel covers are wider ?

Thanks to both of you. I think they look better than my ford caps. If anyone knows where I can get a set, I would appreciate the info.

?

Hubcaps are smaller in diameter, they cover the wheel only out to just past the lug nuts. A wheel cover covers the entire wheel. A lot of police cars have hubcaps with chrome trim rings that cover the rest of the wheel, it's a very popular look in some places, like here, amongst non-cops.
