Took a bit of work to ream out the center caps for the front to get them to fit over the PVH hubs but it was worth the work. Next upgrade will be 32x11.50's to fill the wheel wells a bit better.

They looked good in person but I still think Alcoa's look better! What size tires are you running?

What did you have before the alcoa's? Teardrops?

Damn i was thinking you were near there for some reason. Oops. Any ways you shoild still meet up with us!

On a side note, o think you would like your truck more if you removed that pinstripe. I love not having one. My old ranger had one and i thought i like it. But now this ranger doesnt and it makes it look so much cleaner

Sure did. I've always liked Alcoa's and I needed 16's to roll my chassis around so I figured i'd buy some Alcoa's and use my tear drops for the chassis. Win-win in my book!

Eh, the pinstripe doesn't really bother me. I'd be afraid of having clean paint along the sides of the truck and scratches/water marks everywhere else.

Nice looking truck. The wheels look good on there. Just a suggestion, but the front could come up a couple of inches to bring it closer to level.

My driveway is a slope so I guess that's why the truck doesn't look level. Earlier this year when I did ball joints and tie rod ends I cranked the torsion bars before I aligned the truck.

Love it Zach! How did you do you front caps to get them on and did they fit snug around the end of hub?

Gotcha. I thought it was 98-99 because of the three color tail lights.
