Oh, I used to drive explosives through Security all the time on the way to the ADACG.



I was told that red oxidizes easily by a paint guy, it's why I decided that dark grey would be a better option.

the aero on a truck is the same as a refrigerator.

Thanks, I'll probably leave the cover off. I move things semi-regularly, so I need access to the bed.


That is cool that the AC uses the same thing as a fridge. Glad there is no surprise there. Seems this truck is a very simple truck, simple and reliable (though I lost my fuel pump tonight).

AC and a fridge use the same principals. They are the exact same system.




What he is saying it the aerodynamics of a D21 is a brick in the wind. Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.

Oh, I see. LOL, whoops, I wasn't thinking aerodynamics.

Alright, need some more suggestions.


Anyone know of anyone else selling these tail lights?

Besides being sold out, they are pricey as can be.


I've decided to go with a dark metallic grey and black for the grill and bumpers.



I'm interested in these rims to go with it. Does anyone know what the bolt pattern is on the D21?

If you have any other suggestions for street rims that are black, please let me know. Nothing too crazy expensive. It won't be going off road, I prefer highway tires.


I don't want it lowered or anything, just kept at that height.

Pull a search engine, find local tire/rim sellers and go see what they have. You may find it, in person, NOW. But call them first to see what their supply is like. Tell them the year and D21, they'll know if they have anything for you.

You'll also want to research the tires, so you don't rub... inside or outside.
