Do you think the ssv caps would look good on there?
I do. I really like the look with the chrome centers on the black wheel, and think it keeps to the overall appearance. And my State Trooper buddies loved the look too from these pics.
They look great. How are you thinking to mount the PPV center cap? I didn’t like where the mounting holes lined up, thought drilling and tapping into that raised ring would possibly weaken the wheel. I like the look without them, so I didn’t bother. There is a guy out there that makes a clip kit to mount other styles of cap. I have him saved somewhere if you need them. Think it was about $100. I’m dropping mine to 4/6 on Friday..pretty excited. I’ve got the front spindles, shock extenders and 4” spring now. Going to 6” rear spring, trailing arm replicators, and Spohn adjustable panhard bar, and adjustable drop front struts, to take out the Chevy lean. All Belltech stuff before and after…except the 6” springs. I’ll post a pic when it’s all done.
Shoot me the link!
Hey, didn’t you do a Dashskin cover? If so, how did that turn out? Still happy with it? I’m ready to order one right now
I did do the DashSkin and I am 10000% happy with it. Don't be shy with the adhesive in the areas where your dash is cracked, goop that mess on there good. I don't have a single rattle, and it looks so good no one notices it.

Are you going to post your progress on your drop kit in a thread?

Took the head unit out for 2 reasons. Mainly to insert my Moto adapter for BT Android Auto on the back of the unit, so it's hidden. But also, my front channel for my Alpine sub amp seems to be going in and out on its own.

Ripped the FR off after mowing the grass, drilled/tapped the first hole, drilled/started to tap the second hole......SNAP.

POS Stanley tools from Lowes, damn tap snapped like a twig. Luckily I was able to grab the end with vise grips and turn it out. Guess I'll finish tomorrow, as long as I don't break another.
