yeah,well its about level, and i want to keep it that way, but the bed is still angled down in the rear a little, but i think it would be less apparent with a bl.

i think i made a good choice with the white letters out.

Dont do a bodylift. Just go with the AAL or shackle. I think if you went with a bl those tires would just look a bit too small.

Looks great man. It has a nice stance. I would take off that fading tint also, and put some 20% on there.

yeah, i mean they are cheap but they get the job done. i think thats what ill do, put factory back in and get the 6400's. Sure it will look okay with it a little higher in the back though? i can still get a little out of the bars if i have to when the time comes.

I just talked to my parents and they said they will get me the shackles for easter haha but they said only if they can still put them in my old basket lmao.

oh and about the tint, it was on there when i got it, im either gunna just have them do the doors with the same % or have them remove the old **** and do it all, depending on the cost. How much about would it run to do it all you think?

My first pair of new tires were the same at's you have and I actually bought a second pair ( against my better judgment ) which I currently have on now. BUT my next set with definitely be some km2's. These at's we currently have ABSOLUTELY suck in mud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they will glaze over like a chocolate donut an perform just like a SLICK would in the mud faster then you can say ( damn why didn't I buy those km2's )

I will admit though that they have performed extremely nice in the snow and wet pavement and gravel or dry roads/gravel.

Just remember if you ever get in clay or mud with these tires you really need to get on the gas to get those tires spinning to try and throw the mud out of the tread.

They do at least look nice on your truck.

Shackles are easy to do and the factory block will help you out. No more crappy Autozone block. As far as tint, you've seen mine. $150 at Total Image Tinting in Toledo. Do it. Higher in the back will be fine. It won't be that much.
