    Hey all, just wanted to share with you all a couple of pics of my latest mod.

    Man ain't they purty?? :bow: :rolleyes:

    It started out as a change out the lug studs job and turned into a change out the lug studs, bearings, and hubs job. lol :crazy:

    I was gonna get me some rattle cans and paint the truck up to have somewhat of a normal paint scheme instead of the nineteen colors it is now. However, after seeing the new hubs on, I don't think so. I think those hubs just really tie the whole paint job together and makes it look like mall cruiser #1!! :saweet: :screwy: :thumb: :yikes: check it for yourself.

    I'm pretty surprised that my autos are still holding up so I'm still running em. One day I'll change em out. Looking good tho.

    It's a good idea to change out the autos though, not too hard, and manual lock outs are pretty inexpensive; otherwise you get down it a hole while still in 2WD and need those hubs to lock.... and instead they chew themselves up.

    That's what happened to my autos putting off changing them, you can even see the grease coming out of the seal there :( I should have taken some photos of the hub when I changed it, but it was pretty nasty looking.
