Re: Creasy Bear

Great write-up. Some really nice mods. Is it an '07?

Thanks. It's really starting to become a time suck... But I like it. And yes, it's an '07.

Re: Creasy Bear

Got around to removing the fender flares today. Partly in preparation for something different, like the tube fender flares, but also I wanted to see how it looked without them.

My wife hates it, I don't know how I feel about it yet, but I think I will likely go the pre runner style as it progresses. Certainly makes the 285s look tiny..... Also reminds me how much I hate these rims.

Re: Creasy Bear

Nice write up and cool build you’ve got going there. Change those wheels and tires out after the lift and the flare-less look is beautiful, Deb’s is a nice example.

Re: Creasy Bear

Finally got around to doing the grill.



I think the lack of fender flares is starting to grow on me, my wife, not so much. But I also added the drivers side cowl, although it isn't painted since they don't come that way.



Then I removed the roof rack for Thursdays plans.

Re: Creasy Bear

Got around to getting the roof Line-Xed today, I like it. They told me it would have a semi glossy look for a few months before it faded to matte.





And since I managed to mess up my knob when cleaning it, I ordered a new set. They're alright.



The interior is still a super big mess and very dirty, but the cleaning will come later.

Re: Creasy Bear

Got a little bored waiting for my package to arrive, so I stickered up the interior. We get stickers along our road trips, I had nowhere to put them, so I figured this would do.



Hopefully 'll have more work to do this afternoon... Then I can mount these...
