    Thank you!

    Thanks Rich hope life is good for you miss our breakfast club thread that disappeared when pd3 left :(
    hmm, I have an idea!

    Thanks Mike! I like the tires a lot my first time ever with BFGs.
    The ride is much better than the Silent Armors.
    No steering wheel vibes & takes the bumps
    THAT was an expensive lesson learned. :(

    yeah I have gone back & forth on the bling ring. Not a chrome fan.
    The wheels are new enough that I do not thing they would be scuffed underneath.
    But with it off it looks the old 10 spoke sequioa/tundra wheels.
    I thought about painting or powercoat but $$ maybe some plasti dip? :p
    Whadda you think? Someone else's pic attached.

    Say hey How u doin?? :D
    Good to hear! TGIF!

    Mike I'm leaning more that way too.
    The front & rear bumper are staying chrome & ties it together.
    I will keep the badges chrome too now.
    Just have to herculine the steps because they are already rusting :(
    Then I am done!

    I like that step, I usually step on the hitch ball, sometimes when I'm barefooted.

    Dave I have used the hitch but never barefooted. My feet are sensitive lol :D
    I do like the step for it tucks up and lets me get in the truck with the tailgate down very easy.
    I looked like a turtle otherwise :turtleride:
