New pics of the truck

Well, with this being finals week, I figured what would be a better idea than, no, not study, do a little exploring before I leave this $hithole city of williamsport! This is by far the most "off road" I have found down here, always wanted to go down this road but never did. And I do believe it's all legal, I didn't see any signs... Just took a few... Oh, and give me some suggestions on what to do with my bumpers, grill and flares. My front bumper is starting to pit and rust and I don't know what to do about it. I've thought of the grey, black everything, colormatch, or maybe that duplicolor bedliner. What do you think?

The plan for the day was to unhook the rear swaybar to see what it would do, but after seeing this, I may want to wait for a little bit of lift. This is the first time I've caught the rear rubbing. But, seeing that this is basically maxed out (only one tire spinning and not going anywhere) I don't think its much of a problem...

The tires are alright for what I do. I got all 4 of em for 160 bucks. I do a lot of highway driving and they do pretty good, never hydroplaned or anything. And they've never let me down off-road. I'd deffinatly buy them again.

That was by the walmart in montoursville. Go past lowes, then past walmart, then under the 220 bridge. Then go like 100 yards after the onramp to 220 and there is a road to your left. Its gravel to begin with then it gets rocky, then it turns to grass and dirt. There was a pretty sweet firering back there. I never used 4x4 so you'd be fine if went.

Nice pics of the truck. What size wheels are those and what size are your tires? They are a real nice looking combo.

Yeah, its a gravel road that runs inbetween 220 and that creek.

Na, I don't think I'm gonna be out. Gas is to expensive and I'd like to save my money for a lift and some engine mods. Maybe after I get that, I'll make a trip down. lol and no, I aint buying your chrome bumper, I'm not a huge fan of chrome...

They are 15x8 steel wheels (I think american racing, I bought em used), I think they have 4 inches of backspacing but it could be 3.75. And those are apache A/Ts 33 12.5s. For the wheels and tires I payed 235 bucks. Both were used.

Yeah, I got a 3.0, and it sucks. I think I would rather get worse mpgs than have no power what so ever. I'd like to get 4.10s eventually but that might never happen, gears aint cheap.

I might ride down, but this weekend I got to make my maf adapter for a cone filter and I got to get my dirt bike back together and running. I'll be down with my truck someday...

I was gonna paint it all black this weekend but I'm still not sure. I did nightshade my 3rd brake light, turned out pretty nice. The spray paint probly woln't look that great, I like to call myself a pretty good spray painter though, anyhow, I would think it would chip off and look worse than it already does? Also, I'm not sure if I paint the front bumper, valance and grill black, if it would be too much black... whats anyone else think?
