Looks good, but a bit too low perhaps? Was it on access height?

Yes it was in Access height for most of the pictures, except the first few, those are in HWY Height.
I am still trying to successfully hack into the EAS computer so I can alter the settings to be permanently a little lower than HWY ride.

Comments on the actual photos (I'm jealous you have a D90 :shock: )

I try to keep my subject a little off centred and I find the 1/3 + 2/3 rule works pretty well (1/3 ground, 2/3 sky). But this is of coz subjected to compositions etc. I like your off focus ones, they are creative! (esp with big yellow RR in the bg which is kinda hard to miss :p).

Very nice. Clean, I actually like the color.

Very distinct.

Now lets see some dirt on that clean slate...

YEah, the D90 is quite the camera, don't really know how to use it anywhere near its potential. Thanks for the feedback!

YEs, the truck is in fantastic shape really. I try to keep it that way too.
No offroading for this puppy. :naughty:

Beautiful truck!!! I've never been a big fan of bright colors but that truck I will take in a heart beat.

Got a couple of questions for ya...

What is a "de-baffled air box" ?
and
Are my eyes playing tricks on me or did you have to notch the bumper for the exhaust tips?


How about a pic of the underside showing the exhaust if possible? Man I'm sure that baby sounds awesome!

I feel like i'm cheating on my truck now, drooling over yours :)

Hey, thanks for the kind words. Bright colours have always been my favourite.
As far as debaffled airbox goes, it means removing the trumpet that is located in the bottom part of the airbox. it looks like a tube. Gives the truck a little more of a grunt under acceleration.

I did indeed notch the rear bumper a bit, otherwise it would have probably melted the plastic. The truck has a bit more of a "burble" now to it, but is very nice and civilized inside. I can surely snap some pics, but it is basically, cut the rear resonators off and run piping with the tips.

very nice truck.. not my choice of colours but it really suits your "look"

Gen III's at rear but not front - why? Get the fronts as well... you will not regret it.
Swap over the 18" rims for 16"s with decent rubber... huge gain in handling and comfort.
Dual exhaust note.. yeah, it sounds great, especially when off-road with all those diesel 4wd's.
Bilstein Shocks... not so sure... mine are a bit harsh on-road. Bilsteins are long wearing but too hard IMHO.
25mm spacers? Hah! Go 50mm with some 33" tyres and then you'l'l shame the other P38s'a out there.
De-baffled air-box... haven't noticed a huge difference yet as I've been running mine "de-baffled" for a few months now.

Your camera work is very nice... I'm still playing with a D100 and can't get the same sort of results... well done to you.

Cheers, Paul.
