Tell me what you guys and gals think. Also, I'm really badly needing a suspension lift. What do you peoples think i should do, Rough Country 4" Suspension lift, or a Rough Country 6" suspension lift?
Boy oh boy does that look sharp! I think your cleaning skills have come a long ways since the ROTM, there is nothing like the look of a freshly washed and waxed truck. I can tell that a whole can of tire shine was used in the production of these pictures, I give it 2 thumbs up for sure. How long did it take you from start to finish, wash, wax, tire shine, all of it? I am just curious that's all,...............oh and I almost forgot did you clean under that hood mister? :gasp: Even if you didn't I know the gravel roads play hell on your truck, so you get a pass but an A+ for effort! :great:
Uhmm... Couple hours? 2-3 hours cleaning, and i cleaned my engine two days ago at the car wash. Put my truck in there, rinsed it off, waiting for my engine to cool down. Then i put a plastic bag over the alternator and then used the "Engine Clean" selection on the dial. It's too dark to take pictures now. But by tomorrow morning, my tires will be gray again. After i drive down the gravel road, they'll be brown from the dust. same with my truck. This is how i feel for all my effort... lol
what do you mean tried, looks pretty damned waxed and shined to me! I feel your pain on the tires I grew up with the road to my mothers being gravel . wash and shine one day then good bye the next. go figure it got paved as soon as I moved out.
Well I think for 2-3 hours that looks super, that is about how long it takes me to do the interior of my truck. But I know one thing If your truck was black you could easily double that, it is a shame it gets messed up so fast though. I have always wondered how that engine degreaser option worked, sometimes I use that to get the tar off of my wheels and it works good.
Looks good from those pics. You've got one of the easiest colors to keep clean, which is a nice bonus! But if you really want to see how well you did, wait until you can get the paint under light or direct sunlight. That'll show any imperfections or mistakes much better than when it's in the shade.
And either way, still a nice truck you have there.
Looks great! I don't know how you deal with the gravel roads every day, we went to my sister in laws campground the other day (wet gravel road) and I was ready to go into convulsions at the sight of my truck covered in muddy brown dirt :gasp: but I think I have O.C.D. when it comes to my truck!
Looks great as far as lift goes go big 6 inch for sure...if you get the 4 you will wish later down the road for the purchase of the 6 inch lift
Thanks for the responses, i like how my truck looked, too bad the dust is all over it now.
I see you have toyo open country M/T's... what size tire? your truck doesn't look lifted or leveled...i'm guessing stock suspension... Do they rub
:sign0005::sign0173:looks great, imo you should do the 6, you know the saying "go big or go home" :lol:
33"x12.50R18 Toyo Open Country Mud Terrain, they do rub at max turning, and when backing up half turn. Torsion bars tightened a slight bit. Looking to get a lift so i don't have to worry about that ever.
lol well you tried to wax it............................and you succeeded
