    Yeah, those are good rims. I'd been looking into something like that a couple years ago when i was only ramen-rich I'm more set on the Cragars at this point, or possibly something in a Bonneville style, just based on how they'd flow with the lines of the body. Probably going to step up to 17 or 18s for a moderately updated look, though once i bag him, probably step up to 19s.

    I wonder if they make 19x10 steelies...

    Leveled out Rusty today. Wasn't the original plan, but that's cuz I was supposed to be at work today. Client canceled, so we changed around the schedule and I took off to a buddy's shop.

    I brought with me beer, some tools, and of course, a sawzall. I don't need no bumpstops no more. Don't need no factory rake either. Both, gonzo.

    Definitely looks good leveled off now that the spacers are in.

    You could really be a dick and point out that yours is a Toyota and his is an S10...

    I really dig your truck Tuhd! Nice work on the rear flares, they came out great.
