I've got the same wheels and need to pick a color for powder coat

Look forward to seeing what color you go with

Great looking project!

It looks great. Are you going to mount the rest of the cage or leave it as is?

More fun. Just ordered fully rebuilt LT85. Couldn't find one on this side of the pond so bought in the UK and shipped to Netherlands. Fun fact: it only costs £85 to ship.

Have you thought about maybe doing the Rubbolite Trucklite NAS style LEDs in the rear?

Haven't really spent too much time thinking about LED's. Once it's here, I will probably spend more time focusing on tuning out the 3.5L and things like LED's.
