got some much needed work done

had the day off and got some much needed work done to the truck. from fixing my front diff leaking to painting and detailing. Here's what i did.

Painted my wheels

Changed the diff fluid and ended up painting the housing and cover, yea i know my shocks shot...warranty FTW



got me some SS black diamond plate (screwed up cutting) its made for baseboards. Using it for gap guards. used some stainless hardware too.



Then i washed, clayed and waxed

Those wheels look a lot better without the blue and red stripes on them. The diff cover looks really good too.

Yea I completely agree I hated the stripes so they had to go. Every on does the bolt the same color so why not give it some contrast and paint em black.

i dont see the point to even balance anything that big. It's not like it's going to see any highway miles, and if it does its still gonna vibe. We have balance beads at work for stuff like that.
