probably back to the same red, i might two tone it though, and on the rims i will have to agree with you, those are 18's. ill probably pick new ones up like an eagle alloy at the 4x4 jamboree this fall, plus those tires have about 80% left on them so i might as well get use out of them for a while

thats true no sence in wasting them. i like the look of solid colors verses a 2 tone just my opinion though. looks like you dont have much rust to deal with like i do when i get to that point with mine
