    I didn't want to go with plain black so I used "Machinery Grey" and black for the outers and brake parts...

    I did the 14 bolt the same and I'm installing it right now.
    The D60 is going in next week.../forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Looks good, Rene. You're gonna love having one ton running gear. My axles are painted with rust /forums/images/icons/grin.gif , except the diff covers are painted khaki, the same color as my truck.

    Thanks guys. I will certainly love the relative peace of mind when I'm wheeling!

    I know the axles won't stay pretty but i figured for what i paid they should at least look good when i first put em under the truck!/forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    What did you paint it for? You're just gonna scratch it up when you wheel it /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Looks nice Rene /forums/images/icons/smile.gif . I like semi-flat black, it's easy to spray over the top of rock rash....

    <font color="green"> Looks good! I got mine cleaned a painted a couple of weeks ago, and got the ARB and gears mostly installed yesterday. Still have to do some final adjustments to get the gear pattern dead on, I took some pics of the pattern I have now that I'm going to post on Monday to get some input on what you guys think. </font color>

    I HATE THAT COLOR! When I was a kid one jobs was painting all the machinery in my dad's machine shop. I had to paint all the inside window trim the same color. That may be why I didn't join the Navy, my hate for gray paint!
    (It looks good, I just hate that color. Hope you don't mind me poking a little fun.)
