Actually... all the yellow is Rustoleum Sunburst Yellow. Prep is the key and DRY TIME is the killer... I didn't touch a thing for 2-3 days. All painting was done in 80+ degree weather.


Thanks all....

If you are ever in my neck of the country.... look me up and we can go ANYWHERE..... Moonrocks is 20 minutes.... Rubicon Trail is two hours ... Fordyce is 30 minutes.... pick it... we will do it!

OK i have a question. I have a 4" skyjacker lift ,I installed a Smittybuilt Rear bumper W/Tire carrier Jerrry can holders and cooler rack this caused a 1.75" sag in the rear what will be the drawback to coil spacers. Any Ideas

That is a LOT of sag from a tire carrier. Add a winch up front!

You can do a small spacer if you want, but the best thing would be is to get heavy rated rear coils.

No problem... oh... and Welcome to WF!~
6" coils out back would most likely be way to much IMHO. You may not be off by that much. Look into the heavy rate coils or a small 1" spacer... maybe a rear bucket relocation on the frame would do the trick as well. There are kits to do it to correct the coils orientation and some gain ~1" or so... another option.

Not too many West Coasters on here compared to the masses.... we gotta keep it growing!
