    April 2013, worked up enough courage to bake my headlights! BHLM always looks good. Color matched my grille surround at the same time using Duplicolor perfect match. My advice is to sell the chrome and buy an already painted one.

    Damn, very nice. Did you add any lift with the coilovers or did you just put them on? It looks sick.

    Thanks everybody! :) I didn't realize how much I have done to the truck until I decided to do a build thread. I am sure i'm missing a few things too.

    Kaena point is a lot of fun. We are very limited in places to legally off road here on Oahu. There are more off roading pics in my gallery, including a trip to Peacock flats!

    The coilovers are sitting at just over 2.5" I'll add my ride height to my OP.
    Thanks!

    Sure, i will be making some tomorrow actually. how many and what size slotted screws will you be putting into them? ;)


    Thanks Topher! Yours has come a long way too. I'm sure it'll go much further when you get back to the mainland. I dont even want to think about how much money I spent just on shipping all that!
    Thankfully there is amazon prime :D

    I thought that was copper.

    If you're planning for mud or sand, a set of those slick anchors would be perfect. I can't remember the brand, but they look like a pair of shovels with an 80° bend in the "handles", and all for $400 or so. I'll bet you could do at least as well for far less money.

    Yeah, sand anchor would be nice. Its really the only time I'd get stuck alone anyway.
    Not many sturdy trees at the beach!
