Very nice nik digging the painted rims. Been thinking of doing that on mine aswell. But why remove the running boards. It's the same height as the frame. I've used em to measure if I was running on my frame while offroadinf. :D

took them off to make it look higher. That and I never use them. When I do my new tires and lift I was gonna get some different ones. And the rims really weren't hard to do.

First off, the insert. When I first got the car, the tires were bald and slid around like crazy. It was a rainy day, and there is a hairpin turn just 500 yds from my house. I took it and ended up in a ditch on the other side of the road. The other side of the embankment flexed the bumper a bit and popped out the insert. I just never got around to gluing it back in. But it's fixed now, old news.

Man, that truck, as well as a couple of others, are my inspiration! Quiklifts, or a 3" body lift part # pra-883 or lift spacers from BTF Fab.

Updating pics here in a minute!
