I could be ok with Whitey.
But kill Whitey doesn’t sound like a nick name.
Love Whitey

While I make decisions on the major mods, I'm keeping myself busy with little ones. The first is a grill face lift.

Dude from wayalife already has a Jeep named Moby. Not happening.

With you in WA and the girth of the LandCruiser, if you wanted to go with a whale reference, "Iceberg" and "The White Death" were nicknames given to the first adult albino Killer whale spotted in the Pacific.  "The White Death" was also the nickname given to the Finnish sniper who had 505 confirmed kills in 100 days during the 105 day "Winter War"('39-'40) between Finland and the Soviet Union.

So you call it Whitey and then everybody says "KILL WHITEY!!" when he attacks something hard.

No other color options for the springs?
Maybe it’s just the color on my screen but they look teal?
Wtf?

3" lift springs rear and 3.5" front. Dobinson only comes in one color. I'll take performance over looks any day of the week.

Maybe rough them up and paint them with rustolium black?
A white truck with big old teal springs is heading down a homosexual path.  :stopit:
I have never heard of Dobinson until now.

Just get yourself a Miami Dolphin sticker and you'll be golden!

If that's the only color then come in, then it's just part of branding and I certainly wouldn't do anything to change it.

I'm not going to ruin triple dipped powder coating because you are uncomfortable with your sexuality.

Tint came out nice. Had him do a windshield visor tint as well. Now to decide on what decal to put up there.  :headscratch:

I’m getting the impression that Andrew doesn’t like our feedback?
I would like to suggest the heart beat of America from the 80’s corvettes or possibly something that says Miami vise.
Both will work with the teal colored springs.
Tint looks good. Can’t wait to see it in person.
