Waxes the truck and debadged a cobalt

Sorry for all the pics!

Over the weekend me and Kira washed and waxed the truck and debadged her cobalt. I think they look pretty good. After the summer meet June 28, we plan on powdercoating my wheels black with a chrome lip, putting on a rollpan, and lowering it 2 inches more.

And what do you all think of this?:

All black or with a chrom lip?

I was about to say the same thing, those wheels look really small on your truck. How about some 03 Cobra 17s or something. But the black with chrome lip looks awesome.

Once its lowered I hope that the wheels look bigger, I like the offset pretty well, it makes them extremely easy to tuck! In the future it will be on black 20's anyways. The bumper will be fixed also, it is driving me insane.

Oh, and the wheel is called an eraser wheel. you can buy them at Napa for like $16 and put it on a drill and it works like a dream. It leaves marks on your paint like a normal eraser would, but put they wax right out with ease.

cheap ebay carbon fiber altezzas. I like them, and we are planning on black 18's for the cobalt, but I may have to look into bronze.

I am mainly on 'the other site' RPS. but, I like it here also, I'm not biased towards one of the sites.

Anyways guys, I live right on the Ohio, KY border and am close to Cincy and Lexington. If anyone around that area has a rollpan, a black or paintable front bumper, or black grill surround for a 3rd gen let me know!

Also I know you guys are lifted fans, but if you all would like to meet some other Ranger drivers I can post up the details. Me and a few trucks from KY and TN are meeting up and riding in together for this:
