    Well It finally came the day. Got my glass from Roberts White Lighting a few weeks back and the next step was making it match. There was no way I could mach the glass to This:

    So I just Repainted it all


    Orange peel Satin Black is the new color of my Truck. Need to touch up a few spots. The Black sure does show body imperfections but the Satin and Orange Peel does help hide some of them. My truck is used and abused anyways, Its all just Character :D

    Here are some Preview pics. Need to get my Sliders back on, clean up the trim, get my badges on, get my Clear Corners, and get a Beefed Winch Bumper Built!

    Also REALLY think it needs a scooped hood now

    I love it.... I am planning to paint my 97 Flat Black. I gotta ask, why did you go Satin rather than Flat?

    Because everybody has Flat Black :D

    And I wanted a little bit of gloss. I saw a Satin Black Taco on TTORA and fell in love. It was this or OD Green. I like the Black more Ive decided

    Dam, looks a lot better than ur camo! although the camo really set u apart. Did Roberts White Lighting make your glass or are they glassworks, fiberwerx, hanneman? Are you gonna widen your front stance to match your glass better? maybe spacers, spindles, tires or even long travel?

    I say it looked really sick with the camo, and it looks good with the black as well but leave the corner lights

    Gonna miss the Camo. I met a lot of other hunters because of it.

    The glass is Hanneman. It is 4.5" Flat Top, Not what i wanted but It was 75 bucks so I took it. I really wanted just 3.5" Glassworks or 4" Fiberwerx.

    Clear Corners I think will look better, Can always swap back it I dont like them.

    As for the Stance, I am currently just sitting on these 1050 tires until I get my 32-1150's so that will bring it out a little. The glass and tires are actually matched almost exactly right now. Like I said I didnt even want this big of glass but it is growing on me.

    The rest of the front end is up in the air right now, We might build new lowers and go Coilover which will widen it a bit (I have long uniball uppers)) or I might go SAS. Dont really want Long Travel, My truck is not a prerunner it is a hunting vehicle and a DD. I would get way more use out of it being SAS than LT.

    Not sure what im doing yet but it will come after I pay it off (600.00 left) and we build the Winch Bumper.

    Where is it? I can't see it in the first pic... hehe, just kidding.

    Fenders are pretty cool... I like it. Stay with the black.

    At least for now. My truck gets used and abused. Like I said it is a hunting machine. Black looks great but shows scratches, ill give it at least 2 years before changing the color for the 4th time :D
