    Mine look like that. They still work. I pounded mine a little more straight, but I saw no need for new ones.

    As cheap as they are my first choice would be my dealer.

    2nd choice someone parting out a truck here.

    Last option tromp around miles of recycled vehicles

    I'm the second owner of this truck but it would seem the person who worked on it previously lost both caps for the driver side. My mechanic informed me of this. No wonder why my wheel bearings dried out and failed so quick those are pics from the caps on the other side. Thanks for your time folks

    Lol as for the chips they are called Rancheritos they are from Mexico I live by the South Texas Border so I go to this really nice professional place in Mexico to get my work done for a fraction of the price . The chips are awesome if you should ever find them . I got a quote here in Tx for the same job for 600-800 dlls because the guy said he couldn't find no info on the model . I went to Mexico and had them done plus a ball joint for 75 dollars total with the ball joint and labor. I provided the wheel bearings .
