Scratchn' the Turdles Belly

Looking good there Mr. Smith -- the tail lights is a great compliment to the darkness the truck presents. Only thing that needs to be darkened now is the chrome grille ;)

I'm going to powdercoat it with the transparent black-I think.

Since the center caps held up, it should work fine.

My paint looks like crap though-what to do--:confused:

is your grill not plastic? 'cause i know mine is (1997 model) .. it only has this chrome laminate thing on it..

Yes-but the center caps are also plastic-
I think the small amount of metal helps the plastic hold it's shape-
it might get soft, but stays put.
 






Today I got a 31" spare under the truck, and installed a cb radio.

The inner fenders and liners are installed.

Hmm, I cannot figure out a way to mount the tow hooks without cutting the front bumper cover, ( I have an explorer bumper)so I am blowing this off and hoping for the best. I have a strap and can wrap the front member if needed.
 






oooooh looks good!!! gotta love it.. hopefully i can see it out in OURAY! i didn't realize it was labor day weekend (right)?? so i think i might be able to come! no work as of yet....

You will, and yes I would love to

Tow hooks are installed-
but for some reason, my bumper is weird. They are in there, and visible thanks to the new holes, but they don't stick out--:confused:
I have " inny hooks" lol

Anyway-they are in and I painted my bumper also-It doesn't look good, but certainly better than it did, with peeling paint and all--
 






Ok, I am no pro-just a regular guy trying to get his truck ready for Colorado at the last minute.

Tow hooks in and hidden--lol
You can see the red pimpin torsion bar ends in the control arms-and the yellow "gorilla hose" trans cooler lines I got from Danwhitaker

Tow hooks look good..just one quick thing-the gaps are big enough to get a hook in, right?

Tire repair kit, air compressor, first aid kit, cooler; the important stuff of course.
 












As long as we're listing all the things you might not have...rear tow hooks?

Really nice looking ride.
Has it held up well for the two years?
