Icon10 I completely forgot...

I completely forgot I was on this forum until receiving and email about it.
Some updates on the truck.
Here how she was when I first joined up:


Here's how she ***** now:


Additions:
3 in PA body lift, 33/12.5 r 15 BFG M/T KM'2s, 15 inch American Racing Outlaw II's, Double din touch screen Pioneer, 10 in subwoofer, infinity speakers, Mustang dome light, LED third brake light, tinted windows, ultragauge vehicle monitor, TSC toolbox, HID headlights

Things to come:
New exhaust is on the way (Flowmaster 40 series), Regearing to 4.56 with possible aussie locker in rear, painting wheels and tool box black, tinted tail lights, and a few other possibilities.

I am pretty active on other forums as well. I have had to replace wheel bearings in the front (that also came with all new rotors, pads, and calipers) and recently had to replace the clutch and slave.
Here is a pic of the clutch. My mechanic said it had been burnt up for a quite a while so it wasn't me that did it. I've only had the truck since Sept 2010.

I hope so, I've had the tires on since April of last year, just haven't really got around to putting in the $$ to get them. And thanks, there's still a lot I want to do with the truck. You're truck ain't bad to look at either.

The wheels I got for a steal, so I picked them up when I got the tires. I plan on painting them black sometime in the near future once I find a good enough shop that'll do it but not charge out the a**. The original wheels I wanted were discontinued before I could buy them and there weren't that many other choices I found online in a 15" wheel. 15 inch wheel FTW because price of tires goes down

Yes yes, I know. But it had to be done. It's looks so damn sexy. Plus, I have a manual so it didn't effect it that much, well unless you count the 4 mpg I lost haha.

The only lift you have is the body lift? Looks tall.

Yes. 3 in body lift, 33/12.5 tires and cranked my t-bars. I feel with the tires, BL and tbar crack is feels much more like a 5-6 inch overall total life.

Stock is 15x7

A lot of people run a 12.5 on an 8. Did it on my last truck and now this one with 0 issues and perfectly even wear
