Looks good to me. Another small thing you might consider. Is putting black sidewalks out. Makes a difference, subtle, yet nice.

Those are very similar to the curb finders of the 60's but for rocks.

Oh yeah, looks great. The small amounts of dirt make it look loads better. What's the deal with the step? Are there any dwarf in your family?

Nice rubicon!

Only if you paint the whites before you turn um in. Whitewalls on the inside are way more ghey than outside

I'm probably the only one in this club but I like the white sidewalls out. I can see how they would get all scuffed up if you ride rocky trails or go rock climbing (or can't judge the distance to the curb). Just my lowly opinion.....

^ you are not. I think whites out really sets the wheel apart and provides some excellent contrast! Keep it that way. I vowed never to remove my OE steps cause I thought they were awesome... then I did and just the other day gave them away. No steps look like the tits.
