Might be a size thing - I dunno... the whole black/black tire thing is a relatively new trend I think.

I like having the lettering showing - especially with black rims, the black flares and blacked out wheel wells. Give just that nice touch of contrast.

cant wait to get some data over to Lew to get this thing properly dialed in.

front and rear axel fluid service done, as well as transfer case.


new rear diff cover put on because the old one was looking pretty rust-shaley

Sharp cover. Getting that rust treated and painted will really have that looking sharp under there. The lift will make it so easy to access too.

Well at least we have decent ground clearance under the trucks. I was able to get under mine and do some cleaning and spray with rust converter without even lifting it. I just had to use some cardboard in some areas so that it did not end up over spraying on some spots and end up looking like a spray bomb job....even though essentially it was...haha.

Ya but its so much nicer to wire brush - or wire wheel anyway - surface rust off when its in front of you and not over you.

I mean.. im all for a high iron diet . .. but those flakes get stuck in my teeth [emoji39][emoji846][emoji846]
