tires have gon up alot. these falkens are 1400 tax in at any other dealer.

~So the falkens are ordered, they will go on next thursday at the earliest. 33x12.5R15's. and im hopefully selling my 33x10.5's for $600 to one of the guys in the ORC.

~supposed to be picking up the wider axle this weekend, gonna double check on that one.

~also, trading my stock bumper for a prerunner bumper. going to change it a bit, but its a good start and gets rid of my stock bumper as i wont be needing that. going to run support tubes, build a new skidplate, and gusset it. I just needed a bar that is pre-bent for the front curve as i dont have a bender and dont wanna pay $30 per bend from a shop.

That bumper looks good. I find those prerunner bumpers are hit and miss. They either look **** or like they need a ton of work to make em look good on the truck.

That bumper definitely needs a little work to match what's going on with your truck but it's a good starting point!

^ I agree. I loved those tires! Every 4x4 my family owns has them. The only problem I ever had was with extremely wet roads. Other than that the dynapros are a great tire! And not a bad price either.

why would you swap out the original axle in the truck for a pre 92 axle then swap back? did the original one blow up?

Nice pics... not sure if it's just the way they're flared out but those front fenders look a few shades darker than the rest of the truck!

they are about a shade off, combined with the different angles of light it makes them seen very off. in the sun they look great, only in the shade or cloudy do you really notice it. beats white though! especially if ya knew what i paid to get them painted
