Looking for a few things for the 95 SMB I just picked up

I'm looking for a Yakima or Thule rooftop box, preferrably black.

I'm looking for some wheels or wheels/tires to get me by for awhile. I would prefer some black rims but any OEM f250 Ford wheel would look a lot better than hubcaps. I can't afford a new set for awhile.

I'm looking for running boards, steps or hoops. Once again, black prefered but anything would probably work, even the flat, gray OEM van running boards are ok.

I'm in Tn, so most of this wouldn't be easy or cheap to ship from the West coast. I will be in Colorado for a week in October.

Thanks!

Careful, OEM F250 wheels, depending on what year, won't fit your van. The E250/350 bolt pattern is 8X6.5" (8/165mm?) I believe, and the F250/350 wheels went to an 8X170mm at some point. Do some research on that topic, save yourself some headache when you agree to buy a set of wheels/tires and they don't fit.

Thanks man. I know about the difference. I'm primarily looking for older F250 wheels, mid to late 90s and they are the same, 8 x 165. I appreciate the heads up though.

Come on Jage, it's not like you've been sleeping or anything. How are you so out of the loop?

Without pics it didn't happen. We haven't seen the Jeep yet!
