    Well I got my side moulding on Thursday from the mister Cdan and put it on this weekend. It's the OEM side moulding that says "four wheel drive" on it. Here are some pictures enjoy, or ridicule, whatever works. ;)

    Looks great, but I'll say it before Junk does: "You shoulda spent that $$ on a lift and some bigger tires." :slap: Seriously though, a nice clean looking job.

    Hmmm, how much did it cost? I have a '99 100 and the faded stripe in the middle of the moulding has bugged me for quite a while.

    Thanks for the complements. Yeah the photos do suck. Unfortunately my neighbors truck was in the way so I couldn't get a good angle (we share the driveway).

    I do have some money left for a lift and new tires and those will happen soon. The problem with the lift however is I'm waiting on Slee to get their semi bolt-on caster correction out. I want to run J springs with BFG AT 295/75/16's but don't want to do it till I can lift it with the castor being stock.

    98LXand99LC it cost me around $355 ::)

    It might be similar for the 100, not sure. One thing I do know is it will not be fun to get the old moulding off. It can be done but that 3m adhesive is an exercise in patience.

    For those of you that remove these mouldings they make a product called an eraser wheel. available at most piant or auto supply houses. it is basically some kind of cork imitation and will remove decals and such with ease. mounts in a standard die grinder and will make short work of removing the gummy s***e left over and will not damage the paint.

    Yes, I dig those mouldings. I have seen them on only a couple 93-94 Cruisers. Were they an option on U.S. cruisers? I'd get a set too if I didn't have the ugly LX450 cladding :(

    I'm not sure what kind of option they where. I know CDan can clarify this. I forgot what he told me. :-\

    The mouldings Darwood has were not factory installed on North American 80's. They are JDM OEM. The 40th and the Collector have OEM mouldings. They are very similar to the above mouldings. They are a slightly different shade of grey and the front doors are plain (do not say "FOUR WHEEL DRIVE").

    No offense dude, but you need some counciling.

    Repeat after me:

    "Function over form"



    Nice looking rig, everyone should have some of those, hell I'll take 2.

    Ahh Rick, you see I'm not done yet. Wait a couple weeks... I should have some function for you then, and after Slee releases their caster bracket we'll have more fun. ;)

    Truthfully the side moulding has been my only non functional mod... heck even the little console carpet square has a function; keeps things from rattling around. (yes I also bought one of those)
