Thanks man!

And prep. Its always about the prep.

i sanded it down to 2000 grit and did a tack wipe before too. Then just normal spray technique.

You cant have any shiny plastic when you paint it

When you painted the front end, what kind of paint did you use, looks real good

You got one sweet ride here! Definitely gonna keep checking in! How do those TSL Radials do on the road? been thinking about changing out my trusty BFG A/Ts for some of those when I get the chance.

thanks man!!


I have 0 issues with them on the road. Perform just like any tire i have owned (but better off road ) And if you live in wet wet wet conditions i would reccomend the SSR. But even still the TSL's handle really great in the rain, never hydro planed, even in the worst rains (85 down the highway with rain sheets!)

Lol, yeah. When you say rain, you can basically say that the Northwest is synonymous with it. But thats good to hear, my buddy has been running original TSLs for a while. Some 33x.13.5s (which were worn to start with but basically turned to racing slicks after a few months. He just put on some 36" TSLs and they look better, but His first exp. made me leary lol. But good to hear!
