Nice and level now:

I hear you on the mods. I was thinking about swapping out to new wheels, but I really like how it looks now.

That looks great! So all you did was replace the shocks? Do you have a part number? I googled those shocks but it shows several different looking shocks.

Sorry for the delay. Yes, all I did was replace the shocks. I had to get new upper shock mounts for the rears though since I had the load leveling shocks.

They are the 2 shocks at the bottom of the page on this link

Re: Wheels, Wheels, Wheels, Post Em Up

These aren't supposed to be pretty but they look good to me because they make sense and I got them for cheap. Cammo Green Plasti Dip + Graphite Metalizer= Gun Metal Green. You could actually make money by selling your OE rims and running these (or have your designated off road wheels (they only fit standard brakes, not HD)):

OEM Goliaths powder coated gunmetal wrapped in 275/45/20 Toyos. Drives way better than stock.

I like that look. Hard to find a good "steelie" that works on the WK2s. Nice
