New Mods due to Alcohol Motivation

hahaha...no We didn't drink and drive....BUT we did some mods.

RedRanger8888 came up for the weekend, we were supposed to go up to Oklahoma City, but alas work gave me the big loser stick in the back side and I had to work on Sat. So anyway I had picked up a OHC 2 weeks ago and still hadn't gotten the motivation to get it installed, so Rob (RedRanger8888) and some help from the little metal can got me goin....and the thing WORKS...LMAO anyway on to the pics:









Finally got a matching Rim and got my spare mounted:


There is story behind this....It was MOTHER'S day and my wife suggested to go to Sears...(LOL do you know what your getting into? LOL) Anyway an hour later I walked out with this:



Clean interior...somewhat:



OHC installed:










RedRanger8888's truck:




Painted the Bezel :



No it's not pink, the stupid flash screwed up.....hater's...LMAO

yea ok.
haha


yea i'm still a little hurt about that :(
5+3=8
3 to 4+3=6 to 7.. still trying to figure that one out. its ok.. i've needed all the ground clearance i have and more.. those torsion bars would have already been mangled considering i've hit the shiny RCD "support 'thin-***-walled-tubing' bars" lol


now if i photoshopped the sticker into THIS picture i would be trying too hard
