    I've changend the whole look of my truck. What do you think, should i have left it alone?

    Last month it looked like this:

    And now it looks like this:

    I was questioning the painting of the box and steps, but the only way to find out was to do it. IT looks good when the truck is black with black box and steps, the same with silver...so here it is in blue.

    Well, i never thought i would get rid of them until i found the set of 957s brand new plus install for $215.
    And I realized i could get that for my FJs (wich i sould for $200) so it was a no brainer. I wouldnt have painted them though...

    Looks good though I like the first rims better, not a fan of chrome. Though, looks a lot better without the shell imo.

    Looks good regardless.

    I picked up a set of 5 FJ steel take-offs from a local dealer for $100. Guess I got a deal... I'm getting some Jeep Rubicon BFG MT take-offs this week to mount on them (255/75-17.) Can't wait, haven't even had my '09 a week yet!
