you took the head light covers off? They didnt look half bad went with the whole blacked out look. Go all out and black out the grill and that piece on the bumper.

TheSandman 03-31-2008 07:38 PM

nice man, I'm thinkin of getting those tires soon, they look nice. Did you get the disco's for 3.5" and up? My disco's are almost screwed all the way out for my 3". Looks like you had to trim a little on the front bumper from that flex pic

nashmd454 03-31-2008 07:45 PM

lookin good Froggo...you puttin some money into that build.

nierace 03-31-2008 07:47 PM

Thats a lot of gear for little tires :O

froggo27 03-31-2008 07:49 PM

Ya i sold the headlight covers, and the discos are up to 6" lift. So what you gotta do is just tilt the front sway down and you'll be fine.

GraKee99 03-31-2008 07:50 PM

Looks good, how do you like the flip out tv?

I lovED it, i dont have it anymore because i sold it to buy the springs. Only thing i didnt like is that i couldnt use the steering wheel buttons.

Cool, I have been thinking about getting one but just don't know if I want to fork up the cash for that or do something else. I thought they made adapters that you could use your steering wheel controls.
