Friday will be tune up day. some pic whoring time.

now to find some matching dash parts...
Not bad, now answer me about the bumper I want to buy it because I have made my bumper in a little photo shop on my phone

That sucks o well, what's a nice bumper for around 300 bucks? I can't justify any more than that untill I regear to 4.56s.

I say 3" 31s as a DD would be nice

I wanted gun metal for mine but my tire guy couldn't get any at the time. I'd go with that if possible.

My airbag light came on and off randomly yesterday, and then today my temp guage was acting up. It looks like I will be pulling the dash apart and cleaning the cluster connections like so many other folks on here lately. I think the Munkee has been reading this thread and looking for ways to act up on me; and she's probably mad because I spent my free time last weekend putting a hitch on my wife's KJ.
