    Nice build! How is the Plasti-Dip holding up on the interior? I like the look. Concerned about it wearing quickly from constantly being in contact with it, shifter, window switches and such

    Thx! i love your satoshi and bhlm lights. did you do the lights yourself??

    The plasti dip has held up really well especially the little bit i did outsde on the antenna holder. it rubbed off on the driver side window controls but because i drive with my knee scraping up against it, never even ealized it untill i saw my paint job peeling away :rolleyes:

    Shifter still looks the same as the day i did it but there really isnt as much traffic around it.

    I still have my stock headlights that i would like to have BHLM done to, but i dont wanna try and do them myself as a first time expirement lol. Where in GA are you??

    No unfortunatley i do not have any room to do anything major to my truck. the apartments i live in prohibit any vehicle to be on jack stands for any reason!!. i found a good guy here thoguh thats been doin everything for me and letting me jump in every so often. I highly recommend the spindle lift DO IT!! you wont regret it.

    My suspension recently changed, i just added 5100's front n back set to 0 with OME 883 coils for an extra 1 1/2" lift (Pictures soon :D). UCA's still stock. the great thing about it is that your suspension can stay completley stock after installing the spindles and your alignment will be very easy to get into spec.

    I recently found out though that with 1" spacers added to my stock wheels i had a horrible front end shake from 45-60, removed them and completley silk now.
