Looks good ! It's about time to paint my little rear window fake vents too. The red paint is almost gone from the starboard vent.

The rear axle will move closer to the body the higher you lift it. It's fine though because when you hit bumps the axle cycles backward not straight up. I had 33's on my 95 with the v8 and it scooted pretty good. I also had headers and exhaust, mopar chip, throttle body, and intake. It was pretty fast.
