I like both. I think white looks more "correct" for the vehicle. But body color makes it more "updated". Both look good to me. I've got white rims on my olive green Chevy, but that's how I got it.

You just need to man up and decide which one will look better dirty and require less work to get clean. I think both look good, but which color is going to stay looking good longer. Will the white require constant touch up and cleaning?

So, back on the wagon again today! LOL Gonna replace a couple heater hoses on the expo tonight. Order a new front diff seal that I have leaking and actually replace it if they have it in stock by chance. Maybe mount my front brake lines and then I want to make some templates for my rear hitch stuff. I had plans to use some existing material I have on hand but that's not going to work so I'm totally changing direction now and going all custom. Hopefully it'll work out...

I just ordered seal kits for my front shocks and I'll pickup goodies to revalve the front end hopefully this weekend if the seals show up in time. If so I should be looking really good by the end of the weekend I think on it overall. Would be cool to have the hitch done, front shocks dialed in, front diff not leaking and front brake lines mounted. At that point, I'll get going on the rock sliders and then not much is left really at that point. I'll probably actually start stripping down whitey the rest of the way next week!!! Figure that'll probably take a couple nights and then I'll be making the call to get rid of it. Looking at the calendar I'm thinking maybe try to set it up so that thing goes away around like the 20th-22nd. My neighbors should appreciate me a bit more at that point!

Anyways, things are definitely coming along! I don't really want to wheel it till I get the rock sliders built which is why I'm kinda holding off and doing those last. I figure by doing those last I won't be stupid and take it out before it's really ready. I could honestly probably go run it right now but another week or two at the most of patience and I think I'll be much better off. Probably just in time for the heat right!!! LOL Even if I can just get one or two quicky runs in for testing before it's too blazing I'll be looking good cause then I'd be more willing to head north for some cooler weekend type trips. I just need to get some miles under it's belt in the dirt to make sure all is good...

Hasn't had a stumble since I replaced the fuel pump wed night so I "think" I got it figured out. I figure if I can burn a whole tank or two that I'll be warm and fuzzy by then. I'm currently DD'ing it for sure. All the remaining projects are single night or multi night things that won't leave it undrivable so from here out it should stay running. Time will tell, it was a very temperamental issue that wasn't consistent and only happened on occasion but so far so good. I drove it across town to red rock casino basically yesterday afternoon which is the furthest it's gone from home since rebuild. LOL Baby steps...

Good to hear that the fuel pump was likely the culprit and is now replaced. Obviously, time will tell for sure but at least you have something to show for it.

Yeah, just coincidental timing I'm guessing. When it started acting up I figured, obvious issue would be something related to what I'd done over the past 2 months. Nothing was touched with the rear suspension fab work though or rear fenders. Up front all that had happened was a few harnesses were unplugged, rerouted and plugged back in. Then the MAF harness I cut and extended... I instantly went with that being my issue and well... Turns out everything I checked tested good. I put a pressure gauge on it and while it wasn't 100% obvious it did some things that made me question it. Called in the uncle and he agreed that it was the likely culprit but also not 100% so screw it, pump and filter. Well, we fought with the filter for close to an hour and rather then breaking a line or fitting I decided screw it, leave it on there and just hope it's only the pump. So far so good... Would still be nice to put a new filter on it but can't get the lines to pop loose for the life of me!

Oh and last night I hit my first kinda hard bump with it and I'm pretty happy. I've hit some speed bumps for my urban testing but nothing big. Last night I was able to blast the dips on Harmon crossing Nellis. The sign says 15mph. I took it at 45, front end didn't touch the bumps, rear compressed maybe half way thru the compression from ride, stayed totally in control and for sure didn't leave the ground. Anyone that thinks that's not impressive, feel free to hit that intersection at 45 and let me know how your ride handles it and how hard you smack your bumpstops! LOL
