    I used Rustoleum graphite. It was the closest thing to gunmetal I could find that I liked the look of. Surprisingly it only took 1 can.

    I retrofitted them! I have Goodyear Wranger duratracs at 265/75/16.

    :cool:

    Just an FYI...

    If I'm ever in Utah, I'm taking your truck and leaving mine behind in your garage.

    That is all

    okay cool, thanks! i was wondering how that stuff looked on wheels. My dad has all the stuff to spray them with his real paint gun. But that stuff looks pretty good.

    np man! It turned out pretty great I think. Especially considering I painted outside on a windy day without a paint booth and I got pretty tired of sanding after a couple hours so some of it was sort of half assed. I was pretty happy with my paint color choice as it was very similar to the gunmetal I was looking for\.

    Truck looks good without, but for Moab, I prefer it on! Nothing like pulling into any ole place and throwing your sleeping bag in the bed...but maybe DC's are too short for that?

    As always...awesome rig;)

    Officially a member of the deckplate club. Replaced the K&N intake with it. Virtually no difference, but considering I don't think I lost any noticeable power I may be selling my intake (like new). Also ordered a timing belt water pump kit off ebay yesterday. It's about that time. I'm at 113K and checked my coolant and it didn't even show in the resevoir : ( Did a little reading and found that it may be a result of my water pump leaking. Ordered this one-

    Read a little bit and called Toyota. Nobody really gave me the impression that I would need a hydraulic tensioner. I'm getting my accessory belts cheap from my uncle who works at a parts store. Looking to do all this before I take my truck cross-country this summer..big plans : )

    I'm short (5'8") and the DC bed is still a bit short to sleep in. Bigger reason is I don't like the extra weight up high when I'm playing on the rocks in Moab.
