Very exciting!

The tread is about 60%. The wheels look like a flat color, but I had bought wheel restorer by turtle wax and wow what a difference

Lift should be coming in this week

Mkay so here is the update for the first 5 days of owning it

Replaced radiator hose and thermostat. Seafoamed
Fixed gas gauge
32x11.50x15 bfg a/t's on 15x8 Centerline wheels (which I don't like)
Marked out spot to cut bumper
Painted grill black along with headlight bezels

Lift should be coming in this week
Then MCE flatties
and some kind of shock that I can find for a good enough deal


Updated picture from being stock





Definitely can't wait for the lift to be put on
