ive thought about it before but i like the green grey combo, i like it and it looks new whenever i detail the cladding with some meguiars natural shine stuff. once it starts to turn white, if that ever happens, ill probly paint it but i like it the way it is. but i appreciate your input

yeah if they ever start to turn white ill just remove the cladding and paint the rocker trim black, i saw one the other day same color as mine and black painted cladding and i cant say i was a fan of it. the whole exterior was very very well kept before i got it and ive tried to keep up on keeping it nice

you dont have to paint it black though, they have other colors available last i dropped into walmart. lol. it would look good with painted cladding or removed cladding.

i just did roof lights. i went cheap with some walmart lights but i think they look good and put out a good amount of light.
i also just got new tires, big o had a good deal on their all terrains and i really like them so far.
lifting is what i want to do next but need to find another job to be able to do that. lol

walmart lights are also what i was going to get hahaha. i can get bfg at's in 32x11.5-15 for about $100 each from the dodge dealership im about to start at and my dad works at. i thought id go with 4 rectangular roof lights but when i saw someone did that i didnt like em to much so round is what ill go with. walmart sells kc knockoffs for like 40 a pair so it shouldnt be to hard to do.

I was really looking into these lights Northern Industrial Off Road Lighting System Spotlight — 12 Volt DC | Work Lights | Northern Tool + Equipment

I'm going to buy some once I get some more cash and make a light bar.

that link brought me to northern's heaters and stoves page lol. but if ur strapped for cash just use the factory roof rack for a light bar, its cheap, since its already there. and easy to do

That's really odd about the link.... Hmm maybe it's issues on their end. Anyways, yes I was going to use the stock rack on it. Ithink it would look pretty good with the lights I linked. If you search on northern tool they are like $11.59 or something and are round with plastic guards.
