    I keep it Stock but Clean!
    I would blck out the wheels and then leave them off, it would look more rugged.

    Forget the wheels....do something with the white letter tires!:eek:
    I think with those wheels you really need to have the center cap on them.

    I powder coated mine and kept the center caps off. For some reason I really like the look.
