ITP T-9 Pro series rims with Skat-Trac Haulers for paddles, got mine last week, they are great lightweight rims. however, they are soft and if you ride in the rocks they scratch up pretty easy. I dented one to but it was nothing a rubber mallet couldn't handle.
Since you are not far from RM I would drive down there and show them that you can get it somewhere else cheaper and they'll match their price. I used to deal with them all the time when I used to live up there and they are real good people.
By the way, did the same thing that you did at Sand Mountain so you're not the first or last one.
