How about these wheels for that beast?

Incubus Shylock

They have the Torque Thrust feel but more modern and stylish. I think they'd go well with the flame job. :thumbs:

Brian, if you want to know what it looks like, come to the house and peek through the garage window........ Just kidding, I really like the foose wheels, but I have to save for a while longer to be able to afford those. I have done a little more to the truck, almost fully assembeled. Trying to figure out if I want to put the wheel molding on or not. It is also time to aim headlights, and clean out the interior, door jambs, etc. Not to mention that I have to figure out why the a/c is not working! Right now I think I have a bad pressure switch on the low side. Still thinking about it.

Did you get the inspection crap figured out?

Yeah, i had to take it and have it reinspected. Got back today with new tires on the front to get ready for the trip to philly. Tags are all in date now, and the sticker is done. Truck looks good, but I still have to detail it, not sure I will have time before I leave on the trip. But at 80mph, with flames coming out of the hood, a 12' tandem enclosed trailer attached to the rear, I am not sure that people will be looking at the white compound around the door handle.

BTW, Brian, the bed cover looks great!!! Thanks!!

I left on Wednesday night. My step-father got bit by a brown recluse and was in the hospital, so I left early. Pulled the crap out of the 8x12 enclosed trailer packed with my brothers stuff. It's nice to have it home though.

So you are back home? How was the trip with all things considered? I hope that your step father is doing better!

I am home now. Not sure what the last post was about. They had to cut most of the flesh off of the top of the hand and around the thumb. He got lucky, they got the venom before it got to the bone.

The truck ran great all the way to Philly and back home. Even with the enclosed trailer in tow. Got lots of looks!!! espically in DC during Rush hour!! They did not know what to do.
