    I'm pretty sure that he posted before that it's the stock TJ color. That's a really nice looking cruiser, usually metallic paints don't look great but it works for you:cool:

    The truck looks great.

    Sandrat, you might try some anti-inversion lift shackles in the rear to get it level. You've got the patented California Rake right now.

    Might as well be "Sandra" :princess:you girl:princess:. Don't worry Kanai yours dosn't sag as much as sandrats. I think sandrat must have all of his weight lifting equiptment in the back. My equiptments at the gym where it should be.
    Also Kanai, that is a great stance you have on that thing, great color, and cool cage. Any specs?

    are you going to add a safety latch to hold your hood down?

    thanks for the comments......i'll get some pics some more detailed pics this afternoon. That back corner does sit a little low but the angle of the picture doesn't help either. I haven't added a hood safety latch...i don't know if i can because my radiator sits right up against the grill to make room for the engine.
