the goodies come rolling in...

Tomorow picking up some wheels from DRanger024 -which will get a fancy new paint job!

Getting some factory rear lift blocks from koda6966 - which are gonna get my lazy ass up :icon_thumby:

Ordering some "new" 30 inch M/T's from treadwright. - which means I'm in the market for some 4.10's

Getting a touchscreen head unit/gps/dvd thingamajig from Hoosier1104! - Maybe mount a 360 where my passenger airbag used to be in the dash?

Ordering some Mcbay 3" coil spacers off ebay to level me out

And getting some interior pieces dipped in camo!

Wait, cannot forget Heavyfire14 for setting me up with his old chrome/black bumper!

Where the heck would I be without you guys right now? :yahoo:

Maybe I'll end up not missing my old ranger so much anymore. And thanks everyone for hooking me up and helping me out!

Oh there will be plenty of pictures!! Met DRanger024 tonight, unbelievably cool guy! Cant wait to start painting these wheels I got from him! My only worry is the crazy amount of humidity here in the Illinois right now. You walk outside and you feel wet... so who knows what will happen to freshly applied paint!

Good luck with the painting, I actually painted my rims in the fall last year just when it was starting to get cold. I like you was painting in less than ideal conditions. I think you might be fine, just don't move your rims from cold to hot. That's where you will have problems.

I was originally gonna just use some regular $1 spray paint from walmart since ive used it on everything for like 3 years now and its been great. But since I'm looking for quality Im gonna go pick up a can of Duplicolor and do a wheel and see what it looks like.

might have a picture up today.

Are you using the Duplicolor wheel coating? That stuff is great. I used the clear on my rims when I painted them.

That looks very cool. Should at least clear coat them though. Try the Dupli-Color stuff. It works pretty good.

Everyone does black, I wanted to change it up a bit.

And I did clear coat them with some pretty good stuff.

Those are the 16x7 rims off a 4wd aren't they? I'd love to see how they look on a 2wd.
