It says "Out for Delivery" now so hopefully I get a chance to throw them on when I get home.

Also painted the d35 covers flat black to match the rims but left the aluminum cap bare. Might look into getting them annodized down the road.

The white on the glass is the result of running just gel coat for 5 years in the Louisiana sun....waiting to get rear glass before I decide to do something about it. Book of the Piece told me to get a white truck that way I don't have to paint the glass.

These are 33x10.5's on 15x7's. I tossed and turned on getting the 33x12.5's on some double standard 15x10's but just didn't like the look of a 33x12.5...seemed too wide for the height.

Thanks for the compliments guys!!!

Ya I was going to say that they look awefully narrow to me. Looks good either way, but i like the wider look personally.

Not much of an update.

Bought a used 8.8 off a ranger (28 spline) from a guy whos over on TRS.
Then got a limited slip with 4.10's off a mustang guy on CL.
Need to set them both up

Going to be moving in the next month, landlord is not a big fan of porch drinking and/or louisville chugger in the front lawn.

Next place will have a garage, FACT!

P.S. Grease your poly bushings REAL good before installing on your truck, or have a loud radio.
