So today, Easter I had planned on just staying home. But a killer deal popped up on FB, 4 H2 wheels for $50 less than an hour away. So the youngest and I took a ride to the Sac area (I hate it on weekends) and scored them. I offered the guy $60 and he gave me $10 change!

I have to swap a few tires as 4 of the 5 I got are chrome rims and need some serious cleaning. Now I have 5 painted H2 wheels and have my eye on a 6th with a new BF/KO tire on it. So now I have 9, scoping a 10th with just $350 invested. Painted look so much better Might put on the trailer too to lower it a tad and match up.

5 for the sub, probably give the other to my buddy or sell to recoup $$.

Oooh, fancy powder coat!

Been going through all the stuff and found I have most all the bushings/bolts I need. Couple more boxes today, looking for back seat floor covers so I can do all the seats.

This is next now that the bushing are figured out. The rear front spring hanger stock is OK for a stock truck. The DIY4x are twice as beefy, better greaseable poly bushings and now all 9/16 bolts. Think I showed the stock rubber bushing before that was wore all the way through and uses a 7/16 bolt. And look at the stock shackle (bent) vs the new longer one.

Also scored another painted H2 wheel with an almost new tire on it.

Pulled the chrome trim from the windows, replacing with black. Same with mirrors, trying to knock down the "flash".
