If you really like the looks of the Mickey Thompson metal centercaps..... You can take them to a local machine shop or maybe you even have an acquaintance that is a machinist that can turn the cap on a lathe to cut a hole to the hub diameter you need.

OR 4x4

You might try applying some POR 15 to the exposed surface.

Summit Racing does not have a center cap from Mickey Thompson that will fit the wheel with the hole already in it.

yup......but the TTB (twin traction beam) is extremely close to a solid axle, compared to the SLA front ends on the '98 and newer rangers....even with the automatic locking hubs i would need the open caps.......but i do have manual locking hubs.
