New Fj voodoo blue paint job on my truck

Well,finally decided to go with the voodoo blue.It sure is bright!Got most of the parts I had back on,painted the rims black,and mounted some fender flares.Waiting for some BJ spacers to arrive and need to do something with the front end still.Thinking of naming it PAPA SMURF,or BLUE BALLS...(blue trailer hitch balls optional)....gonna herculine the bed tomorrow.

I got a couple questions:
What size backspacing are you running?
I'm assuming those are 12.5" wide.
What type of flares and how are those flares for tire coverage?

I think the rims have 4" backspace and are 10"wide...not sure of width...tires are BFG 33x12.5,and the flares are bushwacker extenda flares.Tires hang out about 1-2".Was lookin at getting some Super Swamper LTBs in 33x13.5.Have 1.5" BJ spacers on the way.Where I live we dont get tickets for the tires hangin out...

You have it professionally done or did you do it yourself?

How would you rate the quality of work that Maaco did?
I've heard only negative things about them so I'm interested to hear about your experience.

4x4 FINK.....The good and the bad about Maaco..The good....
1) cost about the same as new tires $590
2) I supposadly got polyurethane paint,and they incuded primer that was needed(multi-colored body panels,lots of body work.
3)They painted all wheel wells and frame with flat black(nice touch! not asked for)
4)Im happy with the overall job(got what I payed for)
5)They did the job in a few days..FAST!
The bad....
1)I did alot of prep work...removed tail lights,mirrors,antenna,etc..
2)they did paint my winsheild washer jet things on the hood(got spares off the wreck)
3)some overspray on window trim...
4)paint seems soft...suppossed to wait 30 days for wax..
