    Thanks! The sleeved fogs are one of my favorite mods, it definitely pulls the BHLM and fogs together IMO.

    Thanks, the Sports come with all color matched accents; they should come with a color matched tail gate handle too haha.

    Haha that's awesome! I just Google searched for a stock picture and pulled that one.

    Yeah I know, I have been meaning to get around to making one of these and finally got some time.

    Yeah I really enjoy the dumped exhaust with the black tip. I could see where exhaust was cut in the wheel well and decided to make it look like it was manufactured that way.

    With the spacers and blocks it rode alright. It was stiffer than stock in the front but not not horrible for road use, the rear was not affected by the blocks IMO. I have been getting into going out and wheeling a bit so I recently upgraded to Eibachs/5100's and I love it.

    i am trying to get 18"x9" xd monsters to fit under my sport with 285/65/18's as well. i have the spacer lift also. i was wondering what offset you had on those atx thugs, and if you had to do any choping on your cab mounts or fenders?

    I don't recall the offset, I can a look though and let you know.

    I had to do a bunch of cutting in the fenders but not the cab mount chop. It still rubbed the fenders after cutting though.

    the guy i was going to order my wheels from told me to go with a -12. the wheels i want come in -12, or +18. i don't know what would be better. i believe the stock wheels ar +33. with the mickeys i have now i have a good bit o clearance to the UCA but i am pretty close to the fender and cab mounts. i wonder if i could get away with the +18, but then again 285/65/18 on a 18x9" is a whole different animal.

    I cut out a reasonable amount of the black lining in the wheel well and a bit of the fender. No rubbing on the UCA's though.

    Really nice build.

    Kind of a random question. The ATX thugs that I have seen in person look kind of grey in color. The ones is your picture look more flat black. What do you think?
