Well, I got home to california safely...went through moab, bryce canyon, zion nat. park, and las vegas. day after i got home started workin on the truck...so far this is what I have done:

1.) mounted 3 hella 500's with 130W bulbs (not as easy as I thought it would be)

2.)mounted sway-bar relocators (easier than I thought would be) no more squeek! yey..and smoother ride!

3.)made 2 bed bars that move back and forth (pics coming soon)
4.)changed out the old fog lamps with some super bright hella's (you can see them in the first pic)
5.)trimmed some of the wheel well (no more rubbing!)

lots coming soon!

Just a little hint. Not to tell a guy his business. But I used to paint wheels on the floor like that to. Then an old guy showed me to paint the wheels on the truck while they're spinning. Just put the truck on jackstands like you had it, put it in 4lo, and spray. If you're unlocked you might have to spin the other wheels. Sooo much easier though.
Your truck looks excellent by the way.

What happens when you get spray paint all over your rotors?

anything will work, paint work is about the prep more than the paint

scuff the surface with red scotch brite, clean with soap/water, id personally use dupont self etching primer, then whatever paint you want.

Trucks looking good :) I still need to find the extra cash to buy me a set of those wheels
