yeah that'd be cool. or like a DSG gunmetal color. or a dark bronze.


Evan, would you ever entertain the idea of taking that thing all the way to the dunes sometime? It would be a haul, but it would be so cool taking that out their meeting up etc. and you and Beard can laugh and giggle while you guys play in your lame *** rangers

you can really see how much I narrowed the front end now, the truck needs to move up like 1-2" to get the proper drop and flex from the shocks.

tires are 38.5x13.50r17 pitbull maddogs on a 17x9 plain jane black 5 hole wheel..

fool you have a garage to work in..and yes I bet its cold in there..but im out doors fighting the elements and working with daylight. Once that sun goes down thats it. COLD and dark, two things that I cant help :) It was a good stopping point tho, today I will hopefully get some more measurements and finalize the passenger and driver side shock hoops get those welded up so I can put the shocks on to flex it out to figure out how much fender needs hacked off and figure out that stupid exo cage..thing is driving me nuts..

Just saw your weather, low of 26. Pretty cold! I'll give ya that. 3000 miles away in Alaska we have feet of snow and are only 10 degrees colder.


But Friday you'll hav ea high of 65, we'll have a high of 15 degrees. You'll hav ea low of 40, we'll have a low below 0 :(
