I figured you'd want more protection, but until you get the sliders, if you have extra paint.

The caps look great and will keep a lot of PA road crap off the threads and such...

I'm really liking the steelies....

Wish I could use your take offs, I was looking forward to driving over...

I am biased, but I think you need a black grill....are you considering another snorkel? Lots of new stuff out there now, I keep holding off because every time I look, there's a new design...gettin' time for me to pull the trigger.

How's the weather over East? 60 here yesterday, 31 right now..good ole PA.......

Oh and the grill, I'm waiting to see what bumper and guard I go with. That may blacken it up a bit! I just sold my black grill before I bought this!

>>I would call ahead to the Mohegan Sun Arena and reserve a couple as soon as you know when your coming down. They made the playoffs and will be real popular again. Let me know when your heading this way. We use the wifes bosses tickets sometime and I'll buy you a beer! Oh and this week we had a box because they advertise. Free food and beer!

And this isn't completely ruled out yet!

Looks great. I like the black wheels (i just bought some) and Ill be interested in seeing how they look color matched. [I] am starting a similar build this week although its on a white 2011 4 door. Looks like Ill need some spacers I was thinking I might..thanks for breaking trail for me.

Anytime! I think I would have used one inch spacers, as these Inch and a halfs put the wheels out just a hair past the flaires.

I think that 1-1/4" spacers are the shortest that will work with the length of the lugs. Anything less and the lugs will be beyond the spacer.
Looking great

I'm going through a plant upgrade right now, gotta be here to keep an eye on the contractors..lol

I've gotta get over there pretty soon, need to visit my sis in Mountaintop, been putting that off for too long. I will definitely let you know..beer sounds great!!
