    alright so I know i'm gonna be getting some 16x8 dick cepek dc2 rims. But I haven't decided on tires or sizes yet. Anyone know if a 265/75 would look alright with a 2.5" lift? or would those look too small? should I go with 285/75?

    My buddy has a 2.5" rough country lift with 265/75/16's, I think it looks pretty good :)

    Thanks man I appreciate it. haha I just hated the orange look of the turnsignal light. I tried clear and hated it so then I tinted it and love it. The bug guard was ordered by Autozone.

    Well I did a little work this afternoon. I hated how the rubber piece below the front windows was turning ugly gray brown so I decided to paint it, the door handles, and the fender flares becuase they were chipping and showing little white chips. I think they look great now. I'll try to get some better pictures tomorrow in the sunlight.

    I used this krylon paint, mainly because it said no sanding! :D

    This little gadget was a great two dollar purchase from wally world. Well worth it. pops onto any spray can. and it works great. Its put out by rustoleum

    finished products. poor lighting. hopefully better pics tomorrow.

    Those rims and tires look sick man! ;)

    the deckplate mod would give your engine a little 'roar'
