    he used some kind of funky paint that changes to four different colors depending on the angle you look at it. him and his brother did some awesome body work to this thing and I have given him lots of crap about what he did to it. told him he needs to give me his irocs and go buy some mall terrains for his new mall crawler.

    and to brag a little, its got a 5 inch lift that the local shop told us it would take them 4 hours to install and us 8-10 hours with no lifts or experience. me and the two guys that did the body work on it finished it in about 2 hours with hand tools and floor jacks. then went by the shop and laughed at them.:D

    How much did that paint cost him? I remember when that stuff came out several years ago it was really high $$$ stuff, no way would I put that on my truck, then again, mine aint no mall crawler either.
