  10. One thing I want to mention is that the 39 trans modification made this thing a lot better to drive with a stock mill. I no longer have to Rev it out all the way so it won't lug bad when shifting into 2nd
     
  11. So I was staring at this thing today and it's a lot of black. I want to try some trim rings but I haven't seen any for 17's. I think I am going to try out a set of 16inch solids with 5.50x16 and 7.50x16 firestone blackwalls that i have. I've got a couple sets of hupcabs to try too. One thing I am thinking about is to change the wheel color. Any thoughts on color? I thinking maybe a white wheel. or green?

    Throw a picture of your pickup over on the photoshop thread and get someone to add some different coloured wheels for you.

  14. How about either ivory or a buckskin color? And double maroon pinstripes?
     
  15. I like the black wheels personally :)

    Maybe a simple pinstripe on the body line would break it up somewhat.

  16. Noooooooh! :oops: It's because it's just black, it's kuul! :cool::D
    If you need spiced up look, I'm with gwhite - a pinstripe on the body (I'd go for cream-ish or red-maroon-ish) or a red on the wheels. :)

    I really like this look, though - used truck, and nothing else!... until we meet at a redlight! :D

  21. The truck is doing well....I was daily driving it up until roughly a year ago. Between the shop and everything, she hasn't seen much love. Anyways thought I better update you guys with some pictures.

    Love this truck! I wished I could fit in one but at 6'4" I need a bit more real estate.

    It's nice to see this one pop up again. One of my favourites.
