    [​IMG]

    First thing I did was paint my stock rims black.. they were on 225/70/15 Hankook radials and upgraded to the good year wrangler radials 235/75/15
    [​IMG]
    I upgraded my stock grill to a billet grill and I also got a trd emblem off eBay.
    [​IMG]
    I like the eyelids on the 2nd gens and have always wanted some for my first gen although they don't make them for the first gen. I made my own out of carbon fiber vinyl...small but makes a difference.
    [​IMG]
    I plastidipped the back bumper, grille surround, grille, bumper. and added the fog lights behind the grill. I got a little crazy with the plastidip [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I tinted the my fogs yellow and I used heat resistant paint to do the muffler black
    [​IMG]
    Installed dust light :D
    [​IMG]

    Next came the spacer lift to get some height up in the front and even it up with the back. They're daystar 1.5 spacers. Thanks to Joel for installing them for me :D

    [​IMG]
    Thanks Joel i owe you buddy
    [​IMG]
    The result
    [​IMG]
    ...Then came the lift :D
    Waiting for it felt like forever but it was well worth it
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Results...
    3 inch spindles in the front ( daystar spacers helped achieve more lift)
    [​IMG]
    2 inch shackles in the rear
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I installed a tire carrier by warrior products :D
