Black rims with a white 100 looks good. As well as graphite.But I'm sure you know about the rattle can. Cheap and damn easy to touch up. Mine are still looking.... Well,bit scuffed up but there's some black left!

Underneath the feet caps are t25 screws to remove the roofrack.

Cheap lift as in rear springs and cranking torsion bars?

Arb or waiting for Slee's front bumper is the only option for aftermarket bumpers. If not going that route I'd leave em.

Again, Arb makes a good roof rack. So do a few others.

FYI- I have 10% tint on the front windows and 5% on the rear windows (yes, over the 20% factory tint). Dark as s*** and sometimes annoying at night. But in the day no sunglases are needed.

Congrads! Holly crap I wish I had your energy...what a start:clap:

If you want part with the factory roof rack let me know. I'm interested and I have the factory blanks for the holes.

So the blanks are factory? Is that what is in place when nothing is up there?

Bump it off road has a front bumper available. I am thinking of getting one and have him leave off the top loops so it would be a blade bumper.

I used the Bump It Offroad diff drop and pre owned OME 865 rear springs for a 2 inch lift. I have not replaced the shocks yet, saving up for those. I will be doing OME shocks from Slee.

Please document some of the body reconditioning items you mentioned. My 2000 could use some love.

Also, have you ever considered seat belts as another item to sell. Mine are really dirty and retract really slow, makes the inside feel old. New belts would be great.

I have looked at the samples I have, the Ostrich is a darker tan and now thinking I should do Alcantara on the lower back to keep my ass in the seat. Wont on the seat bottom as it strains me to get out of my friends car with it as you stick to it like Velcro.

I will have pics along the way, as far as seat belts go I just strip the webbing out and then use zip ties to hold them out. Soak in light detergent and then use a pressure washer to rinse after washing, then hang to dry.

Congrats, Shane!

Mot :)

Thank you sir, got anything I can't be without?

You should advertise to the 200 series group since they have that huge center console lid now. Also, what about smaller pieces for the arm rest in the 100 series. Heat up everything!

You should have bought a 2000 plus, you're going to die in the '99, it'll kill you in a rollover. :)

Congrats on the rig, My wifes has 230K and still runs like new.

For what I paid for this I can have ladies with huge bewburs holding pillows around my head for years to come.

I would have loved a later model as I really like the smaller shifter, console and dash. It will come soon enough.

Nice 100. Just picked up a 99LC. It is in the shop today getting the TB, water pump, drive belt, thermostat and new coolant. Also getting the antenna mast replaced. Got the dealer to pull the maintenance history and so far so good. Will probably need brakes in the next few months though.
