    Yes, have you seen all the Black wheels? They are on every truck, not that they look bad just tired of looking at black wheels. I just like a new look on a stock wheel.

    Your right. Looks good. I like it. Rock on VagLock! Kidding, thought your screen name was funny to poke at.

    I had considered color matching the chrome Stars on my wheels. Decided not to since I am selling them soon.

    Thanks skygear, I used the Plastidip to see if I liked it. Hope to get them color matched in the near future. Have not located any rattle can paint to match the BRM paint yet.

    Removed the Dakar leaf pack:

    [​IMG]


    You can remove the bolts on the "military wrap" easily, but ONE of them requires you to relieve the tension with a C Clamp. This is a 6" clamp.

    [​IMG]

    You can just remove the nut on the center pin bolt with no clamp. It'll unload gradually.

    [​IMG]
    New leaf in front of the unloaded pack. Where does it go?
    [​IMG]

    Well, it's easy. You can't miss it. Just keep pulling leaves off the top until you come to the first one that's smaller than the new add-a-leaf and stop there before removing it. There is a front/back direction to the leaves and it's obvious, as long as you remember to check and don't just slam it in there.

    [​IMG]

    Stack em up and put the nut back on. Again no clamp required. You want it tight but not nuclear. There's no torque spec and it's only a 14mm nut - a strong guy could easily overtorque and shear it off.

    [​IMG]

    But you do need the C Clamp for that middle wrap again.

    [​IMG]

    And, ready to install or re-install:

    (Also pasting this into the 'bjmoose installs OME' install instructions.)

    Got the new truck on Saturday. Sunday put in Weathertechs in the front and back. Monday installed a Pop N Lock. On the way from Amazon are AVS window visors, Gorilla wheel lock, and a locking gas cap.

    This with the aluminum spacer on the passenger side. Same on other side, such a simple mod to cure a huge headache.
