    My point is, keep checking back on Amazon and eBay. After I had purchased the one tip off Amazon, I emailed the seller asking if more would be available soon. I'll let you know if/what their response is.
    Have you tried Jeeps forums? Those Vulcan tips are originally made for Wranglers.

    hey @ereeku36 I messaged you privately. But in any case, if I buy them on Amazon, will you help install these for me? I also live in Queens, NY.

    Thanks everyone for the input on this tread. I pickup the same tips on eBay (cheaper than amazon). I did not have prime account. Here they are:

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vulcan-X-Ex...72.m2749.l2649

    Btw, this is for each tip not a pair! So budget that price in.

    But what a big difference! This is my wife's car and even she likes it. It did not make the car look rice or silly.

    Here are some pics to give you an idea. One of them has only the left side installed to show the difference. Also the corona bottle was included to show scale:

    Any tips or tricks on installation? I know they just slide on and you screw them tight, but how about getting them lined up properly, any tools to make screwing them on easier, etc. They look awesome!! I've had mine for a few weeks, just haven't had the time to put them on yet.

    Thanks for the post, especially the before/after shot!

    Hi

    I got a few private messages on this. So i will explain here assuming we have the same tip.

    - You need an “open wrench” for the three bolts.
    - You need some cushion or towel as you will go underneath the car. No jacking of the car is needed
    - Put the new tip over the existing tip.
    - Align the back of the new tip to be exactly on top of the back of the old tip
    - Now you need to go underneath the car, look to ensure the old and new tips align up and start tightening the bolts evenly so they will align center
    - When it is almost tight, align the tip centered ( there should be some play)so it is on center
    Tighten it so it won’t move anymore

    You are done.

    It is really easy to do. Just do a Nike. Good luck

    Thanks widdy88! I just installed them this past weekend, and it is straightforward. As widdy said, don't fully tighten until you have the tip positioned exactly where you want it (i.e. centered). They look great!!

    Great! Glad it all worked out. I think this is how it should have come as factory. The existing tips are too small and not in scale of the size of the cx9.

    Not that the Vulcan tips look bad or anything, but I’m quite happy with the stock tips. All of that build up easily goes away with a little metal polish. Here’s how our 20k mile old tips currently look on our 2016 Sig...
