I think the CHawton Wheels made oldie classy look and the beluga gives the mean ready for business look
Why not powder coat? Just curious as I am debating on my Disco wheels to paint or PC. Concerned about the winter roads here and durability.

Maybe you can open the overhead door for your next round of photos? I hear natural light does wonders for photos Or you just like taking photos in a cave...

Doug,

Thanks for the words.....

Ken,

soon ..

Alex,
I am a guy, I live in the Man's Cave.. so no daylight for me *LMAO*

Powdercoating can't be touched up, painted rims on the other hand can.

I have run a MB with painted rims thoughout the northeast winter with painted rims, they look as the day they were painted 3 years ago.

If painted the right way, they last forever ( several coats of paint and several of Clear coat - most paintshops do 1 or 2 - but I have some pull with the painter " ME " )

Horsey you are very funny. I am supposed to use a rivnut to put steps on but I was actually thinking of rhinolining them in place. You know of a good place that could do that?

Horsey

Just so we are clear, in the game of mockery I will always win. I have perfected my craft of being an asshole long ago. You are at best a beginner. Can't wait till you get the truck and need some tools

I was more of making a dig at Horsey that his truck looks like my mom with parkison's disease did the rhinolining.

I wouldn't change the gearing. with the Tdi, tweaked injection pump,full width intercooler, and 1.4 transfer case, the gearing is perfect for the 33's. Truck will run over 80 mph and is comfortable cruising @ 75 and is fairly quick from a light for what it is.
We've asked and asked for more pics- but despite our pleas Gustavo just won't appease us. He's dead to us now. Atleast Wolf isn't such a horrible human being.

Fuck all of you. I'm selling my Rover and joining the Jeep gang. At least those guys aren't assholes. Wait, I own a Jeep too.

As long as your Jeep has "flat" fenders you're already 10 steps ahead of the rover folks.

Gus... man, you've been busy. Looks good!

Wow - 5 coats of paint and 4 clear?! Maybe overkill like those shops you were talking about but I think not Must give them a good deep look and probably durable as a brick.

My 90's wheel look dull. I've used wheel polish and they look decent for a bit but once some mud gets on them they go back to the dull easily.

Fantastic job - the outside pics look great. I bet in person there is even more to take in.
