Now that I have some time; I am going to start a thread on my 80 Series and I will continually post information about modifications that I am either doing and/or researching.
This will also be a great place for folks to ask about my truck and/or seek advice/feedback on planned modifications. I do not pretend to be the definitive 80 series expert, but I do know a lot about them, I have researched a ton of modifications, and I have done quite a bit to my truck.

I had a present last week when I got home from work - five boxes from Champion Beadlock. The wheels are awesome and the quality of the workmanship is outstanding. I can't say enough about how nice they are. I dropped them off on Monday at Rick's Powder Coating (Memphis) and they are being powder coated in a metallic anthracite color and I decided to leave the beadlock ring polished. I have attached a few pictures showing the wheels upon their arrival. When I get them back from Rick's I will post up some more pictures.
