I'm sorry to hear about your rig going up in flames. That is truly a shame. Looking forward to your build. Looks like you have a good start with your parts list.

well i guess i can release a little more info, the plan is to do a black and silver look, nothing chrome, i hate chrome with a passion unless its on an old car. this is why everything is aluminum, also for he corrosion resistance and the weight. not going to be doing anything super shiny, probably wet sand with 100-150 grit and clear coat with something solid. hoping it turns out bad ***!

also, took all of the bumpers off in preparation, figured why not, it looks better than those huge plastic pos's anyways. also got around to taking off the stock muffler, deleting the resonator, and trimming the stock fenders. gonna be putting on the dynomax muffler i pulled off of treehugger

Try a scuff pad on the aluminum. The Lil green or grey pads. It'll leave a brushed look.just be sure to go in straight lines and cross hatch to sone degree, just dobt go in circles.

You'll thank me.

Stratton.

How long do you plan on running the 37's before beefing up the axle?
