What kind of dub does kennys have, the blue 4.0 and silver one I stole the case from? Or did they get more. I need front tow hooks, good condion fenders and a center cap for my spare.

Btw I used rock auto as well, ship usps so no brokerage fees, fast delivery

they only had one silver 4.7 ... from what i could see the t-case was still there.. and no tow hooks on it.. if they had been there i would have snatched those badboys
i took one of the fenders , and what wheels do you have?

regulator is in


aftermarket dash speakers


old vs new


and a bunch of parts i picked up... front fender , A-arm , new shocks and the A-arm ball joint , abs sensor and a new motor for the rear wiper..


and where can i find a laredo for parts ... i need those plastic rockers that come stock on them..

They had a blue Laredo but I guess they junked it. Like they did with all the dubs in Ottawa...

I've got the silverblades, I think, the 2 spoke ones

Anything you buy from the US USPS is the way to do it. If UPS, they always nail you unless the place you buy from can do a flat rate shipping. Then there's no issues. FedEX is hit and miss. Somethings they'll charge duty, but a lot lf times they won't. They tend to leave it in your garage for you and not charge anything extra. I try to avoid UPS as much as I can for their brokerage charges. Brown Santa no like us up here much.

okay... been broke lately , so not much was done until now...

New wheel bearing
Tie rod
ball joint
new rotors and pads all around
dont know if i posted already but i found a pair of rocker covers off a Laredo to cover up my rust
went to kenny u pull and got TWO sets of tow hooks , have not decided if i want the chrome ones or the black ones installed..
and picked up a set of used Moabs... so the turd is starting to look like a respectable human being drives it.

Had the same delimma. Went with the chrome as I have the chrome trim on the grill, and with the retrofit, just looks 'right' compared to the black ones. All depends I think on the overall look.

Of the black, not the chrome. Haven't done anything other than changing the tow hooks to chrome at all. You'll understand what I mean by it ties in better together with the chrome once you see the black. I'm not a big chrome person at all, but the right accents ties things in well.

When I first got it and it's progression...
