    Black grill much better!

    Now some powder coadted ported shrouds for them stacks!
  15. Iron & then some, hope he did something w/his brakes!
  16. Thanks, I have not decided what to do with the stacks. Some like them, some don't. They sort of take away from the 5 window look. 235 sounds good with the headers and dual exhaust. ported shrouds - good idea - they do get warm. open to ideas... I think they have been on the truck for 20 years per prior owner.
