"Jeep" Rugged Ridge Wheel center caps - interest?

All,
I was looking for a set of center caps with a "Jeep" logo to add to my Rugged Ridge XHD wheels. I couldn't find anything out there so I ended up having some custom made. I'm posting this just to see if there were others out there who were looking for something similar. If so I can get more of these made for $20 each. This is about the cost of making them, I'm not trying to make any $ just want to provide an option. Here are some pictures, I am happy the way they turned out. PM me if you are interested.

these are better than others I've seen where some moron has added a " "
symbol after the word "Jeep" . These aren't tainted by such clutter.

Pretty cool!

Yep - I understand. If there were Jeep made ones that would fit the Rigged Ridge wheel - I would have definitely bought those instead.

You sir are one of the few who've come to realize that about 60% of what I post is sarcasm & it was refreshing as all get out to haVe you comprehend that I was just bustin' your chops ,shrug your shoulders & reply with logic and aplomb.

Jeffery,
I figured it was a little sarcasm but always safe to not assume that on forums..... Never know what it could turn into these days.

As for the printer - I'm not printing them myself but I'll call the shop who is printing them and ask. I'll post again after I find out. And N77NXC - I'll get a few printed.

Do you have a picture or measurement of what the ATX current center cap looks like or the size? These might fit??

How durable are they since they are printed? Just thinking about how tire shops like to use the balance shaft to push them out when they go to balance the wheel.

I'm not sure I can answer that for sure. I just put these on my jeep so they have not seen too much use yet. They were printed with PETG which I am told can handle more heat and is stronger than most printed 3D items.

I found that they were printed on a lulzbot taz 6 machine with PETG material.
