Wouldn't be right if I didn't play in the bottom.

-12 backspacing. Def had to do the bmc also but the tires are 295 which is basically a 33.5 x 12.

Looks great!!!  You should add an LED bar to the middle of it!

Thanks. I plan to do some kind of lighting at some point but not sure what it will be. I think I am going to paint the aluminum skins also. Just not feeling the silver look.

Nice! I assume you'll paint the skins black? That would look awesome too!

Yes I am going to go black. I was even considering taking them off and cutting the tabs off the bumper you bolt the skins to and running it as a tube bumper only. Thoughts?

Personally, I like the plates on there!  Black would look really cool!  One lighting idea would be to have a cool design or grates cut into the middle bash plate and put an LED bar or duallies behind it!

But then again, it'd look cool to go plateless too, and add some more lighting down inside the tubes.... If you can't tell, I'm a big fan of extra lights haha

Looks good!  That lift and tire/rim combo looks perfect. Love the stance. Can't go wrong with icon either. Let me know if you need some help with some LEDs and I can hook you up.

Hey man, that bumper looks good on there. The bash plates kinda match the paint. Glad you liked it. I got drunk in New Jersey off that cash.
