So Krylon Fusion SUCKS! Maybe it's because i didn't do such a good job painting them the first time but removed the flares and am gonna paint them with Duplicolor truck bed coating to match my bumpers/

They seem to be holding up a lot better than the Krylon, most likely it sucked because i didn't do too good of a prep job, so i sanded them this time and wanted to match my bumpers any way.

Clear turn markers, black headlamp bezels, and a scoop to cover the vent. Give me some feedback, even though no one really looks at my build thread anyways lol

Thank's for the reply. People have told me to trim it down to a stubby but for some reason i don't find it attractive. If i go bigger when these tires wear down i'd probably take it in to consideration.

looks pretty good but i would never would have bought skycrapper with all the compaines out there, you should have gotten an ome 2.5" or pieced together your coils and got better shocks, the finish and fit of skyjacker is not hyped up as it once was. Km2's are great tires but they will never last for a DD. Otherwise your off to a good start. You need to paint your axles and frame it needs to be freshened.

Looks good man. i also suggest a stubby but cut it on 45s downwards right after the tow hooks, would look sharp in my opinion. I krylon'd my flares as well as my whole interior and it holds up amazing, then again i sanded for a few hours. For your axles and frame try some por 15. Im painting my 8.8 that will be going in monday with it and once its on it doesnt come off. Removing your sidesteps may also interest you. just some food for thought.

RednechJacob: They ran me about 50, i love the look of them.
SOLIDJP44: Yeah i know but Skyjacker has been around for a while, nothing bad has happened i'm satisfied with they're stuff, and i really wanted to go with old man emu but the skyjacker was cheaper and i'm in high school, trying to save up for regear, sye etc. And the km2's are not that great, not gonna lie they look good, wish they still made the km1. And i have a bad case of surface rust, i got it 2 years ago with only 22k miles on it, it was a beachhouse toy so the guy let it sit after the summer with all the salt water etc on it but a majority of the bad stuff is gone.
JeeporDie: Might try some of that por stuff. and i have a transfer case drop kit so the side steps kinda cover that up, definatley taking them off after sye and maybe a tummy tuck though.

Thanks for all of the reply's everyone!
