    I ordered these from MRW and it took them less than a week to build them and get them to me. :D Now i am fired up again to get it finished and take it out and thrash on it.

    Thanks, I think the orange rings will look better after they see some dirt and rocks. I still need to install my zero rates up front and see how it sits.

    I'd also reccomend running more than 4 lug nuts on the back too :D

    Seriously though, nice look.

    LOL, yeah, waiting to do my disk brakes on the back before i put the other lugs on.

    Thanks for all the compliments guys...its been a year long project and I can see light at the end of the tunnel now. I will put up some before pics when i get home so you can see the complete transformation. It was a real POS when I bought it last year, but has been fun to work on.

    Awesome, if you're having a good time that's what counts. Mine has gone from a rust bucket POS (with numerous things breaking on the first drive home) to a pretty mean looking machine. I can't wait until I get the fender trimming smoothed out and get it painted. I'd like to see some before pics just to know what yours used to look like.

    they were $189.00 a piece (thats with the 20 dollar steel surcharge :angry1: )

    I would repaint the flames but it is actually bedliner...so they are gonna stay red :D
