Looks Great Kris! I know you were sitting on those struts for a while, bet you are glad to have them in. How well did the rebuild kit for the front end go?

Glad to hear that, it looked like a complete kit that was thought out well. Are you planning on staying with stock tires? Or maybe dropping to 135x15 in the front to add to the drop? I was thinking of going with 135 front and 155 rear on mine. Just wondering what your thoughts were on it.

Kris, how does that pipe tape work for you? Would you recommend it? I'm going to be getting under this week and redoing the exhaust system. I'm on the fence as to the value of that type of insulating tape. Have you noticed the cooler temps?

 You must not be married.  Rims in the House?  I'd be drawn and quartered!  Got a redheaded Irish Indian here.

LOL, the rims look great! They should tie in with the paint job real well.
And I'm glad to see I'm not alone here.

Do you have a link to where you got those rims?

I was going to paint a set of white spoke rims black to get the same effect

But those are exactly the style I want.

Did you get them in the stock 4x130 bolt pattern?
