Thumbs up

OK, I drove it today for the first time... runs like a top but with the 28" monster mudders , it is geared too low. It needs the 35's... Here are some pics

maybe they will fit on the 90?? I will check the size? I might have to adjust the bump stops though.

Looking good Randy! So the real question is, are you going to drive it to Rausch like that?

Everybody's going diesel...

Chris, I dig what you did with the rims. My buddy with a DII did the same and I've been considering it. What did you use for brand on them? Powder Coat or good ole Rustoleum? I was thinking rustoleum since touch up is a spray can away.

I just bought some semi-gloss paint from Napa, rustoleum I think, and a can of clear. I cleaned the rims, rubbed them down with fine sandpaper, and sprayed. Looks pretty good, and is cheap to repair. I think it cost me less than $10 for everything.

What are you doing for a custom setup? Will the shop give you a deal on two?

I'm trying to figure out what to do for my exhaust, ECR says Tdi probably wont happen, and I dont want anyone down here to mess with it.

Alternatively I would be willing to take the stock one off you hands when you go custom.
