Some progress on my trucks with pics

I have been working on both trucks. The red 99 I picked up some different wheels and tires 31x10.50 bfg at's...looks alot better than those little car tires. I also changed out the ps pump because it was making noise. Changed the RCM and cured the abs light, managed to get the front driveshaft back together and then found out the y pipe was in the way so I had a muffler shop relocate it. Not much left mechanically on the red truck. I still need to install the front driveshaft and charge the a/c. Its going in the garage tommorrow, I am going to respray the red because the paints too thin. Probably be up for sale after all is done. Took some time and drove the red truck and painted the front of the black one...long over due! I wish the black truck got as good mpg as the red [email protected]#% Anyway here's a few pics.

Man that black truck looks soooo good. The red truck looks much better with the new tires. Maybe you should make the red one the DD then turn the black one into the offroad truck. Or do it the other way around and make the run truck get worse MPG so it makes you feel better about the black truck lol.

Thanks! Yeah I like those wheels too, I was actually thinking of switching them before I sell it but I also have a set of the edge wheels that will probably end up on the black truck eventually.

It looks kinda like my faded grill, but it stands out more on a black truck imo.
