I went wheeling back home yesterday...it was the last weekend of ''snow wheeling'' and there was not much snow left...but enough to still have some fun, here are a few pictures of the trip.

I love your build man, I cant wait to be sitting at 4"! How well does it perform? Is it pretty stable on the freeway/comparable to stock?

Well i decided today to paint the cladding black. Went to the store and i bought the dupli-color trim paint and a scuff pad. For today i am only doing the bottom because i started too late...should have started this morning instead of doing nothing all day lol.

Before shot :







Paint and scuff pad.



Took the bottom off, found a rust spot when i got hooked up on a rock last winter...









Drying...after 3 coats.



I will continue tomorrow or maybe wednesday...its suppose to rain tomorrow so i might wait a day before doing the rest...i will not take the cladding off though, im just gonna tape it off.

Thanks guys...it will be all done by tomorrow. I just hope the paint will hold up...seems that a few spot when i was taking the masking tape off...it was also peeling the paint...so i hope its only because the paint was fresh...its suppose to be sunny and hot for the next 2 days so hopefully the paint will make good contact with the plastic. And Bumzo1, i have the selec-trac transfer case.
