    I think my next two projects (down the road) will be seat covers (Wet Okoles maybe) and WeatherTech Digitals.

    I love that color. I'm looking to get either one identical or black. Good luck with your build.

    I see a lot more MGM's now than when I bought it a year and a half ago. But it's still my favorite color!

    Thanks! When I went to the dealer to buy mine, I told them I wanted either MGM or Indigo. They had neither, but there was an MGM that was close by. I'm happy with it, but after seeing yours, I would have been just as happy with the Indigo!

    I would lose the pin stripe. Looks good either way though!

    I have thought about it. I remember it being a nightmare to remove from my Ranger back in the day. Thanks for the input!

    I never did find out the exact offset, but I had a tire expert gaze at it and said they looked like -12. So hopefully that's it.

    Some of the plastic was cut out, and it still rubs on sharp turns, and big bumps at high speeds.
