Thanks. Paint isn't cheap. But the end result is definitely worth it. My drivetrain swap is next for me. 5.5" Superlift with extended radius arms, 8 lug ttb D44 with 4.10s, and a sterling 10.25 with 4.10s & a L/S. I'll be running 285/75/16s.

That slick tailgate trim panel is worth a small fortune too.

Thanks. I never dreamed it would turn out this nice ( I just wanted no rust and a decent paint job for my DD )

Scored a used set of Cooper AT3s yesterday for $275 in a 31x10.5R15 flavor. I also got my hellas mounted. Just need to buy new bulbs and wire them up.

Those tires will look mean. Look forward to the finished result. About how much did the repaint project cost you?

I have around $1000 into paint and body panels. Considering what I've done, I don't think that's too bad.

I remade my light mount today. I didn't like the ones I first made.

New mirrors installed (Dormans. Absolute JUNK. Need to find good OEM ones) and bed tie downs. I went with an old school look with them. I think it turned out perfect.
