Put 35"s on my truck

Threw some 35x12.5 Tires on my truck, 2 are newer MT/R's and 2 are kumhos, im gonna make the switch to Baja Claws in the spring. The kumhos are only 60% right now, so I'll get the rest of the summer and fall out of em then put my 225 70s back on for winter.

Theres no lift, just cut fenders..cut them a while ago because there was bondo all over them. Still trying to decide how much lift I want. I think Im going to go with a 3" body lift, 2" levelling coils, and a belltech lowering shackle, and some bilstein shocks. Keep it simple. I can fit 35"s with pretty much no rub as is so I don't want anything too crazy.

Still trying to decide on paint, too. Im thinking winter camoflauge..but its kind of up in the air. I've also been thinking I would get either the 2007 ranger conversion, with the prerunner fenders and everything, or the one piece f150 front end.

Tell me what you think about the truck, and your opinion on what I should do paint and lift wise! thanks.

Could have at least put white letters to the inside on the fronts.

i think the truck is confused.

imo drop the 35s. do your lift plans and put 33s on it. paint wise since the fenders are all cut to hell and back i would just flat black it. Or do the body work, get some new fenders and paint it something nice. Also im not digging the mixing of the gens. get the bed that supposed to be on it.

Nice. I think it'd look good in flat black.

I think I would just save up and buy a different truck without a ton of rust and different gens/colors and tires that fit, but that's just me!

mmm...not really my style. this is my beater, there isn't really any more rust than you would find on a typical truck..the body is pretty solid. im going to rockguard it and winter camo it and it should match a little more. i drive this truck every day, and im not afraid to take it into the bush and have some fun with it..a newer truck isn't for me. once this truck kicks, yeah..maybe.

thanks for the comments everyone.

I can understand the idea of a beater and wish I had one cause I hate putting dents in mine the money it costs to fix is not really worth it so I onlyy go wheeling in open ares without tree's, and I think if the winter camo is done right it would look pretty cool. first time I've seen a gen2 with a gen 3 or whatever bed, very unique.
