We finished lining them yesterday. Aaron did most the work himself, I just helped spray the last coats. He should be getting them back on today and then I am sure he is going to post some pics.

I think you should use the duplicolor on the grill too.

Wow, Aaron, that turned out nice. Real nice. Thanks for posting it. (looks like your frame horns need a little black on em)I'm just wondering how durable the front will be with the rocks. Please let me know if you see any chips in it. I'm thinking about doing mine. Did you spray the rubber part as well? I painted my grille with the Dupli bed liner, no chips yet but I haven't driven it more than 30 miles lol since I sprayed them.

I did this mod a couple of weeks ago. Lot's of guys are losing their spares. Not only sucks to be W/O one, but you could kill someone when this thing lets go. I believe the weak link to be this part:


The cable goes into this tube where dirt & moisture collects & eventually corrodes & rusts the cable. I weighed my spare tire today, it weighs 79 lbs. In my opinion, thats quite a bit of weight for the system, especially since it is behind the axle. Lot's of inertia hammering on it when we hit bumps.

This is how I improved mine.




First I slid a thick, square flat washer up the cable to squarely contact the factory spring. I then took a 3/4 inch bolt & ran the cable around it between two washers, tightened it up, then I took the ends & used a cable fastener to tie them together.

I then painted the bolt, nuts, & washers & put a heavy amount of grease on the entire cable. Since there is no place for water to collect, I believe this will last longer than I do.
