    Just came back from the Dealer here, Blackfoot Motorsports and saw a new 2013 S10 in a matt grey color. Not bad but I think I like my blue better.

    I was going to make some big pen!s joke in response, but the fact of the matter is, their is a mighty odd shadow in that picture, of which i didnt previously notice, and I'm going to simply deny your claim to wood, and carry on with my day.

    Of course, considering the fact that I'm wearing my work uniform in this shot, I'm now wondering how much of my day to day stuff looks like I've got a raging boner.

    I think there was a Seinfeld episode with pants like these.

    Yup, I saw your post on the S10 forum and liked them enough to go ahead and order a set immediately after I bit the bullet and ordered the bars. (I did buy them from you BTW, but it's been several weeks ago now :thumb).

    Do you still have ABS with the 21" front wheel?

    The ABS and Traction Control are unaffected by going with a 21" front wheel and/or 18" rear wheel.
