How it came to me:





Current state. I actually swapped out for non-spinner center caps because the ones you see below were a little 'much' for the truck in my opinion.

realy nice truck. i usually dont like greens much but that is realy nice. and lovin the cragars! seriously that is thee wheel that i want for my truck. but the best i can tell from my searches n research is that wheel isnt avail in a 5x5 bolt pattern. luv em(with the spinners please lol) thinkin i want to go with a street rod look. been lookin at wheels alot lately tryin to decide what else i mite like. did you do a bolt pattern change? or maybe adapters? or maybe yours were made a while back in the 5x5?

My pleasure,man.My truck is now out of the snow,in the shop,got a windshield in last weekend,refinished the dash pad,detailed the cluster,vacuumed the floor,shampooed the engine, and the THM400 is sitting beside the truck just waiting for me.Won't be driving it till spring,at least a month away,still 3 feet of snow here.
