Just upgraded to 17" rims this week. Really happy with the overall look. A lot of work the last year on this truck. 

New paint, New Dash, New Tires, New Wheels.

Looking real good. Maybe I will see it while driving thru on 81. I go thru there twice a week to and from work.

It cost probably as much as the trip to get those pictures taken! lol. Well I had a buddy at work that does decent body work do it and it was a BIG job. I had a bad dent in the top corner of cab, I bought two new (used) doors as well and they were rippled on the body panels so he did a lot of repair there as well. I spent $700 on replacement doors. I know that was a lot and I tried to find $1500 or less salvage trucks to steal doors off of but not many 4 doors out there to buy so I ate some cost there. 

We used Omni Paint so the paint/primer was nearly $1000. If you don't factor in the doors it cost me $3000 for him to do it including the paint. I helped just so I could understand more of what's involved. I painted a door jamb and I didn't do too well and I had to flap wheel the top down to bare metal since the clear was gone, paint peeled, and rust pits were forming. That was fun! lolj. It's got some imperfections and areas that didn't get sanded out well but black is a TOUGH unforgiving color. All in all I am VERY happy and in 10 more years when it's all beat up from use I'll get it done again if I need to!

Hmm I was quoted 8k if I removed all the exterior parts. Can’t afford that right now lol

Looks like the one in the back 'bailed' off before it could get it's picture taken.

 

Actually no. We tried the 6 hay bails. The trailer tongue was too light and dangerous. Pulled the top hay bail off and just strapped 5 down I was good to go. I hauled 3 trips like this and pulled like a dream.
