My first thought was I need a rammie. That little guy is so cool. Way to go with the pics of him. Second thought was don't leave the calipers hanging like that. Third was why didn't you put the rammie under the truck helping you? Then I read mudchucker, looked back and saw why you didn't! You love your rammie more than yourself! I know you have something to put back into all this so here is a question to get you back here, Did you do all this to paint the calipers? I was thinking about doing that when I just changed my rotors. Can you post a pic with the wheels on so I can see what it looks like? And what color did you use? I know RED!

If the pads are squealing, you might need stop anti-squeal that you can get at an auto parts store. It's not expensive. You spread it oon the back of the pad and it should help.

If you were closer, I would give you the extra jack and jack stands I have. Save some pennies and get yourself a set or borrow from a friend. No sense in dying while working on something you like.

I think he learned the error of his ways. Let's lay off the suggestive help (even though it's completely accurate and called for). He now knows what he needs.
BTW, the calipers look good. How are they holding up? I always wondered how that Duplicolor caliper paint held up over time. And the exhaust sounds great (HOLY SHEET ). What is it? Need some close ups of that.

Blocks of wood, cinderblocks, bricks, old steel rims, or any combination of them. And wait a minute.. you cant afford a nice set of jackstands, but you can afford that nice truck?

Seriously though, the caliper paint looks great, and that exhaust is mean sounding!!! let us know how the paint holds up over time

I have had the Duplicolor paint on my calipers for more than two years and it looks the same as the day I applied it. As long as you do the correct prep work on the caliper, it will look killer for years to come.

Yeah the duplicolor stands up nice. I have chips, etc on mine after 2+ years but overall looks awesome.

It sure seems like a lot of work to paint those. I looked at your truck pics Jeff and I can't see the calipers. I run the daisy stockers and I think they would show thru. Waiting for pics ethoreal. How long did it take you?

Local tool shop. They extend up to about 40". Works really nice with the lift.

Calipers look really good. I need to redo mine this spring.

OK went thru Jeff's pics (all 11 pages) and found several with nice views of the calipers. Looks great. I think I will pull mine off and do that. Love that look.

It's not that many pages if you change your settings to view 90 per page

Not too hijack. How do you do that? My monitor can handle that with no issues at all.

Click on "Gallery", then click on click on "my stuff", then click on "my gallery". When you gallery opens up look to the right of the screen towards the top under the search link. You will see X images per page. Click on it and set it to 90. All set.
