Brought this truck up from Tennessee to Pittsburgh to be my weekend toy. Was rather entertaining having three guys in a Cobalt for 11 hours, which ended with a short nap in a Wal-Mart parking lot waiting for the dealer to open.

Previous owner had the windows tinted, 22" Boss 330s, and some haggardly installed HID put in it. Also, the tails, and brake light have been "tinted". Those will go.

Bringing it home.

Couple pics with my Cobalt

At this point I've owned the truck for a little over a month now, and it's getting time to tear into it.

Found a Undercover ABS tonneau cover at a swap meet for $100. One corner is messed up and the harware needs blasted/painted. But for the price, couldn't pass it up. I'll probably smooth and color match it.

22's are way too big for these trucks IMO, so I ordered a set of 20's for it, wrapped in Hankook Ventus Evos. 245/35 if I remember correctly. This is how the truck sits now.

Ordered a DJM 3/4 kit (arms/blocks) from SS Colly earlier this week. Should be in tomorrow!

Also, sold the 22s yesterday, so I went ahead and ordered a JTR lo-pro tranny x-member, and a rollpan from modshop inc.

Cant wait to get this thing looking how I want it to, then I can start tossing go fast goodies at it!

That color is sick man, what design titans were they? Thats cheap, around here people want 400 for just the wheels, but Ive seen a full set for 75 before, great shape. I kick myself everytime I think about them. shouldl have grabbed those....
Yea I like those and the 5 spoke ones. Good deal man!
What color are you going to powder coat them if you do? White? You can make the Titans the track set since you got those nice Boss wheels :D
What kind of wheels are those, as in what did they originally come on?
Those are the infamous "ZQ8" Wheels, came on these 355 trucks stock if they had the ZQ8 suspension package unless they were an Xtreme model.

Looks good man!
I love the color of those wheels.
