The orange sets it off man. I think the sliders would look great orange. It'd be just the right amount, without overdoing it

It being a trail rig makes tire size that much more important IMO... you don't need much flex to go to wal-mart... however, wheeling takes some flex... just saying, not trying to start a war.

some louvers like this




plus with my stinger its going to have bars that connect to the engine cage through the hood.

Loose the hood all together... just a thought. lol

Bravo Zach! Your truck just keeps getting better. I like the orange bead locks with the blue. Now I need to go to a meet sometime and see it in person.

mm beefy i like it... any way try to find some of that tire sand to balance out the tires its in little black bags you just throw in the tire stuff works great.

yeah gona have to run the equal tire beads or there are some wite-ups on using airsoft bb's and what amount for size of tire etc. centering might be it, thats why beadlocks are good for offroad and not hi speeds on road.


nevermind saw the post you said you used airsoft bb's...dur dur duuuuur

With everything sitting on the floor the tire has a much better chance of moving around when you tighten the beadlock. If I wasn't working so much right now I would drive down and give you a hand.

its cool, i may do one at a time each night to see if it improves, its not too bad once you get the hang of it, though, i wish i would have done it right the first time.

You know, I've never been that big a fan of your truck. I've always admired the work, but there was something about it that never really made me go "OMG, THAT'S AWESOME!".

Until now. I think it looks exactly the way it should. Caging it out will definitely make it better, and after the 5.4 swap it'll be that much more bad ***. The orange definitely does something for the truck. I like it!

Those tires look pretty sick.

I would ditch the orange colored beadlocks.
