Haha, i wish. Gotta get longer u-bolts, and some spare time. Might try to get them on over spring break, which is at the end of March/beginning of April, or else wait till summer break towards the end of May.

Decided i wasn't a fan of the red rings on my HIDs, so i painted them green.



I think they look much better. I wanted to paint them the same green as the truck, but i already had this and ran out of the spruce green.

They're 12" Bilstein 7100s for the rear. I said i originally wanted 2.5s, but there's no way i can afford those, and 2.0 resis will be plenty for me for now. And i got these BRAND NEW from a guy who didn't need them for a really good deal.

Nope, they're the same, it's just the odd angle of the picture. Also, they're not the normal bushing mounts, they have little uniballs in them.

Thanks Colin. BTW, just wanted to add that this past weekend i was out in Lucerne for a race, and i think i drove the truck harder than i ever have, and it surprised the hell out of me and everyone else with trucks more built than mine. 55mph at one point down a pretty big whooped section and a couple of times trying to fly. Can't wait to see how it does with the new rear springs and shocks, and front shocks when i eventually get some. But my power steering pump has finally started to whine like ford pumps are notorious for. It happens as soon as i'm offroad, and once it sits for a few minutes it's quiet again. It's like my truck is crying to me to stop abusing it.

They were bought for a ranger so the valving is 170/60...probably too light for me. I guess i need to order some extra shims, huh? And what psi do you think they should be? Operating range is between 180-250 psi.

Nice, those aren't the alcoa ones are they? I'm really happy with these, i was so tired of the black wheels. Now i just want to get these polished up a little bit.
