Nooooo! It took me so long to resize and upload those!! I have no idea what i did wrong, I'll try again. I uploaded them to imgur.com

There, fixed the pics. Working on resizing a couple of the pics, but here they are for now and I will update the fixes later.

nice x u got

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.

I hate those running boards...makes it difficult to work underneath the truck. I'm thinking of removing mine. :D
kstrayhorn...what happened to your drivers side fog light insert?

With a lift kit. lol, This is what I'm going to get, a rancho quick lift. Thats what hitithard used. Picture below:
2002 xlt
3in bodylift, rancho quicklifts front n back,265/75/16 procomp mud terrains, procomp cast black rims,7 inch jvc touchscreen, triple kicker L7's, mtx 1500 watt rms amp,ks680 speakers, westin brushe guard n taillight guards
surco rooftop cargo rack with lights

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.
