That is a lot of money CC for the Aluminum ones. Don't get me wrong they are super bad arse but costly. I'm sticking to my guns on this one. Clod wheels painted white with a blue pinstripe to match the body... :wink:

^^^ Yup, I got to agree with that.

Besides, can you imagine the beating he'd get from his wife if he bought those?... :roll: :wink: :lol: :mrgreen:

The only problem with painting the rims is that the truck was powder coated and i cant match the color for the rims. How about using some TXT rims ?

What about just using white wheels?
Since that is your secondary color anyways?

The chrome does look good, but I think white is more fitting to the overall theme.

Where did you get the exhaust stacks and the chrome tank on the front of the truck next to the cab from?

I love the truck. I am in the process of building mine. It won't be anywhere as nice and detailed as yours. I just plowed with it this morning to test it out but the snow was changing over to rain and it was like cement. Here is a video I shot this morning at 5am:

I like em, but you need to run with what you like.

It looks great either way. Do you like it is the question?
