    So what are the D slots worth? These seem to be the rare '71 only. I just bought a flatty and trailer that came with 7 of them.
    D slots with valve stem in one of them, 7" wide 3-3/4" (table) BS 3.5" (true) BS shank style lug holes.
    "American Racing Equiptment" and "KA 71" on the back with the spoked look to the casting. Extra lip out where the wheel weights mount and no extra lip just outside outside the lug circle.
    Mine do not say "made in England" anywhere that I can find. I have not cleaned them up so maybe it's there somewhere.

    I bought 5 of them last year that were marked made in England and KA71 for $700 shipped from I think MA to WA for my Ren II

    IMG_3958 small.JPG I got my wheels cleaned up and confirmed there is no "made in England" on any of mine but all the other details are exactly the same as the confirmed Ren II wheels on here. Can Mike Stack, NCRenll and joe-n-jeeps please confirm that all of their known RII wheels say "made in England" or not please?

    I have these mounted on a flatty I have for sale but would rather sell them to a serious Renegade II owner for restore. Reach out if you need them. Nor Cal

    im late to the party but I was always told the "factory" wheels had the lug nuts "centered" in the slot. After reading this, who the hell knows LOL

    I believe your statement about "lugs centered in the slots" is correct for the AMC/intermediate "Spirit" style Renegade oval slot alloy wheel, but the '71-only D-Slot has the lug cenered in the spoke.
    Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

    For some reason I thought the 72-75 Renegade wheels all had serials numbers stamped on the inside. My 5 all do.

    Some of you remember that I bagged 4 slots several years ago.

    http://www.earlycj5.com/xf_cj5/index.php?threads/133946/#post-1447693

    I pulled out yesterday to give them a look and try again to confirm their correctness before maybe selling. (sorry....not trying to fish here)

    They check all the boxes for the later Renegade wheels, as discussed in this thread but, the only identifying marks on them are a stamped number on the backside, in the web area, that reads AOxxxx.....like AO7455 or something.....and each has differing last two numbers in the sequence. Much like the stampings pictured by Tpoulson in the previous post.

    I know there is some confusion on the later style, though the early ones seem very identifiable. Any thoughts on my latest question. I can post a picture or two later.

    Dave, the wheels in your photos check all the boxes for the later AMC V8 Renegade (‘72-‘75) wheels: raised rim around lug area, lugs centered with oval slots, and no raised ridge at face adjacent to tire bead.
    I have the same set I pulled over 30 years ago off a friend’s ‘73 Renegade that I was parting out due to severe rust (the chassis was completely separated around the trans crossmember).
    I like these wheels even with the patina (tarnish), and they do clean up and polish with relatively little effort.

    He's just trying to stall me from generating funds to buy parts to make my JEEP better than his. Some friend, huh? :D

    Thanks for the confirming observation and comments Donny.
