This is plastidip: http://www.plastidip.com/home_solutions/Plasti_Dip

It's a rubber coating, not paint. It just peels off when you want it to. It's great. And you can get it at most hardware stores. Here's a big thread on the stuff. Tons of uses. Guys go crazy with this stuff.

super clean, I'm in love with your tire/rim set up. How much did that cost you?

Tires: $640
Wheels: $450

Total lift/tires/wheels: $2,100

I like them too, but I'm thinking of painting/plastidipping the chrome "beadlock" ring black. Not a big fan of chrome.

Thanks for the codes. I see they are listed at $100 each with free shipping. That seems like a pretty good price already. How much does that code knock off?

Depends on how much you're spending. I keep this thread bookmarked though. I bet I've save over $500 over time just by using these:

Edit: Forgot to mention some of those ^ codes don't work. So here's these too:

What is your backspacing on the wheels? Do you have any rubbing with the 33x12.5? I went with 32x11.5 and my fronts come really close to my frame on my 3.75 BS wheels. I wanna go with 33x12.5 but I am just worried it'll hit the frame.

No I didn't. The expos are stiff enough that they don't come close to the frame.

They are 3.75" BS. And they rubbed the pinch weld, but nothing a little trimming/BFH couldn't fix. And frame rubbing all depends on your wheel backspacing.

I kinda like the chrome rings... I'd ditch the rest of the chrome though for sure.

Very clean truck! Looks like it holds it's own and then some off road. Any plans to re-gear?
