    You are off your rocker. Read this entire thread and you will quickly realize that the beadlock bolts on method Standard, DS and NVs are comestic only. Hell you can use plastic/nylon bolts if you wanted.

    Finally got my s.s bolts from RPG. Love the look. I didn't like the brass look at all. Looks so much better

    I got a 2nd set of bolts from another member. I sent them to the powdercoater to get powdercoated blue to match the shock tops. I have Vince's CNC center caps with the SVT logo, which are also getting powdercoated blue, with the SVT engraved in silver, so they should match the shock tops exactly. A little bit of contrast on the all black NVs.

    Once those are powdercoated I plan to take my current set and have them powdercoated black. Then when I get bored of the blue bolts in the ring, I can put black bolts in the ring, and I was going to paint the ring sterling gray to match the fender flares and give it the look of the special edition OEM beadlock wheels.


    I tried ordering from McMaster, don't waste your money guys. I got the shorted SS bolts they had and the thickest SS washers, and they're garbage looking SS, not a nice SS finish at all. Wasted probably $30 on that.

    They also had blue high visibility bolts and washers, I thought perfect, high visibility blue coating?! Exactly what I wanted! WRONG! They were barely washed in a blue coating, totally inconsistent, nowhere near high visibility color, another $30 wasted on that.

    SO between the crap finish mcmaster SS bolts/washers, and the crap finish mcmaster blue bolts/washers, I'm out $60 already and still stuck with stock bolts lol. That $100 for a set of SS bolts from method all to length and nice finish isn't a bad price at all!

    Painted Bumper and fenders

    Your truck looks awesome. If you do not mind, could your describe the paint that you used on you bumper and fender flares? How does it show hold up with off-roading rocks and chips.

    Thanks

    Hey Vanilla were these black or stainless bolts you got? I tried the link but it must be different now.
