That is good to know... I'll borrow that too, thanks! Oh, and the flag's reflection in the other pic is sweet!

Hehe covering up the damage on those sliders?
 












thought you were going to Cleghorn today?
 












So for my last little project of the day, I removed the silly chrome caps from the wheels. I never really liked them that much, and since they were starting to develop small rust spots, I decided it was time for them to go...it may not seem like much, but it took some serious time cleaning up around the hubs so I could spray some paint...

Looks Good I already ditched the front ones on mine since it was such a pita getting a socket on the lugnuts with the caps in place.


So ya doing Cleghorn Tomorrow right? (hint hint:D)
 






Boomer, what make are the LED's in your grill and next to the rear license plate? They look like they're either Whelen or Galls brand.

I always wanted to put hide-a-way strobes in my corner lights up front and in the turn signals in the back. Even though it's illegal in PA, unless I become one of the chiefs of my fire station. :D
 






Sorry, I have to work tomorrow...:(


The light heads in the grill are made by Tomar, and the little ones in back are made by Viper...
 






Ah dang it i forgot Fridays and Saturdays off
 






Don't forget Thursdays...:p:...Well at least for a couple more weeks. Then my schedule is going to change to Sat-Sun off...;)
 






today I decided to give it a little extra attention by painting a lot of the fading trim ultra flat black...

I started running out of daylight, so the pics aren't the best. I'll try and get some better ones tomorrow.

...second best thing on Earth...

YES!!

I've been trying to tell everyone that for a while now. :D

Looks good.:thumbsup:
 


















It's been awhile since I've been able to do anything nice for my truck, but thankfully came home today and found these at my door...:D


Now I just have to wait for Uncle Sam to give me a day off so I can install them.

...Bling, Bling...:D

...Did the little problem on the X go away???
 


















So after finally having the time to replace my worn out shocks with my pretty new ones, I quickly came to the conclusion that it wasn't worth trying to forces the old bar pins out of the Ranchos for use on the new Bilsteins.

Thanks to some searching and a post by zhanx, I've ordered a set of JKS bar pin eliminators to make the job easier. Now I just have to wait another week to finish the swap.

I finally got the front two shocks installed today.

It was a definite pain in the butt to drill out the holes in the BPE's so they would fit right, and as expected the clearance with the CV boots is pretty tight.

Overall I'm very happy with the way they turned out, and ride.
