Went to the lake today with the father-in-law's new boat and got this pic before we left love my fiddy lol



Also new tires has made a world of difference on the truck vs the gaudy wore out too wide BFGs.

I still like the others lol but I am curious as to how well those tires do. I see alot of people trying them out but I just dont like the look of them. Nice truck though, id love to pick one up but they don't offer the newer year/monthly payment ratio I like to stick around. Im thinking heavily on a 07/08 grand cherokee QD2 hemi with 30-60 k though.

I bet your wallet screams when you have to buy tires for those sizes wheels, 15's are bad enough, 17's suck, n I couldnt imagine anything bigger.

Looks great man.
But you need to get those chrome caps painted the either white or your second tone.

They look too off man.

The 35s he had on before (315s, I'm using a more common measurement) would have cost about $350 a tire. For a 15" rim, he'd have been looking at $250. I was gonna buy a 2000 Dodge Ram with 35s and 20s on it... Turned me clean off when I saw the price of them.

Don't feel bad dude, everyone hates my camo visors too lol I personally like the chrome on there. Gives it a fancier look almost.

yeah we caught one apeice, too much activity on the lake and too hot. The water was 94 degrees in places!!

I lost a HUGE (5+ lbs) bass on a jig. I set the hook, it come out of his mouth, he went back after it on top of the water when we seen him. Set the hook again and the line snapped. FTL I was fuming mad

Lol its a Duke Power Power plant lake. So its a hit water lake. The entire lake was not 94, just 94 at the Hot Hole (where the hot water discharges from plant and usually where u catch big uns). At the other end of the lake it was 78 but for the most part it was around 85 degrees.

Its got lowrance on it bow and behind the wheel, but he is gonna switch them out
