I have always been partial to chrome rims!


Me and my buddy Brandon's white L.

These pics were taken today. I picked up the rims yesterday and had them mounted immediately!

After seeing the chome plated aluminum rims turn to garbage on Pam's car, all I can say is NEVER AGAIN. Chrome just don't not like to stick to aluminum.

Man you are pimpin' now! Just don't drive it much in Maine , or even here as salt tends to make the aluminum underneath corrode.

Thanks guys.

Next upgrade will be swapping out those ugly honeycomb grilles for '01 up grilles, and changing out the hood. I already have the grilles, but I want to have them painted along with the hood (once I get the hood) before I put them on.

Yeah, I keep forgetting not everyone lives in the artic circle...

Sorry, Stewart, I didn't mean to rain on your parade.

Black and chrome is a beautiful combination.

No worries, Steve!

Don, I was asking about chains for my wife when she takes the 4x4 Excursion to the snow with our church youth group.

I've never owned a 4x4 before so I couldn't advise her on the ins-and-outs regarding chain usage on the Ex in the snow.

Plus, I've never used chains anyway! Just drove in the snow without 'em! By law I had to carry them in the trunk, but (as the kids say) I have mad driving skilz and don't need no steenking chains!
