new wheels mounted

they look pretty good imo. stance is about perfect. maybe get some new lug nuts. only thing i wonder about is the brake caliper is damn close to the wheel, i haven't heard any rubbing but idk.

yes, im rocking the no bumper, again.

and yes, i need an alignment.

your back bumper is hella crooked.lol i'm not fond of the rims at all... for free i can understand.. but just not my style. i do like the offset though. and get some centercaps for them if you plan on keeping the rims on there.

Rims are OK

I think they look pretty good. Just get some center caps and maybe paint them black ( I kinda like the way they look now a little better).

On a side note get your back bumper straightened and the front bumper put back on and your set.

yes rear bumper is terrible

but these wheels are an improvement over the stock ones you had lol

and my calipers are REALLY close on my truck as well. so close, i had to trim away some of the thin metal clips that stick up above the caliper. it kept catching on my wheel weights in side the wheels lol

all you would hear is CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK

You're truck is all sorts of lopsided. The hitch isn't even in the center, the bumper is all retarded, the little lights in the grill are crosseyed looking, and wtf is up with the maxed out torsion bars. The wheels aren't that bad, but look stupid without center caps.

wow. okay first, why the hell does the hitch have to be dead center? get the **** over it. The bumper is "retarded" hmm. yeah its lower on one side, big ****in deal. and how the hell are the lights crosseyed? that doesnt even make any sense. you really need to realize not everybody does things the way you do, i think it looks damn good how it sits now and thats all that matters to me, or anyone else for that matter. somebody thats gunna sit here and listen to all your **** really has self problems.

Sorry dude, I still don't like it.

You need to put the stockers back on and de-crank, IMO. And who cares what the trend is, your truck looks stupid with no front bumper.
