The hood is killer! I think the wheels will look better in silver/black... but also would be interested in seeing them plasti-dipped just to see.

Jump in head first! It's not hard, and definitely changes the look. I love mine.

tell me more about that step tube youve cut up into the bull bar. how'd that work out.
Sorry guys it was a really long day at work! The step tube came like that. I bought that Go-Rhino brush guard the same year I bought the truck in 2003. Just recently I removed the sides of the guard to turn it into a police style push bar.

Which part? The hood or the bedliner? I just made sure everything was taped off real good. The roll on Herculiner is very forgiving, easy to put on. If you mean the hood I have some pics when I was masking it off.

OK tires came in. I'm still going to plasti-dip these black but here they are in silver. 32 inch Kumho Road Venture mt 265/70r17

Surprisingly it took only minor fender cutting to get these to work even without the lift kit. Hopefully it will look even better once the Calmini gets here.







These are 10 ply tires. Very heavy! The truck rides very similar to when I had the ATV in the back..lol. Takes off and stops sluggish in comparison to the lighter smaller street tires. I am going to upgrade the brakes but I guess I will just have to get used to it.

I am very happy that I was able to retain the stock mudflaps. I cut maybe an inch or more inside the flap, and a couple inches on the front inside corner to make them work. I also tested them under compression to make sure even under load they still clear. I slightly relocated the front fender support bar and one of the mounting screws for the mud flap.

You can also see how far out these tires protrude from the fenders. Nice look but hopefully that doesn't cause any issues driving in the rain.

It does give the truck a much wider stance.

I also forgot to show you guys the leather seats. These cost me $780 shipped from leatherseats.com but I had to install them myself. These are not slip covers you have to remove the cloth and hog ring the leathers in place.

Please forgive how dirty the truck is I have dogs. Also I haven't had the punisher logo embroidered in the headrest yet and I haven't installed the door inserts that come with the kit. I'll be doing that this month I hope. I am also going to do a detailed clean up on the inside and get new floormats and so on.
