sweet man, I knew the DC1s would look good on there once the flares and valence were painted black. Good call.
The 32s are great on there too, I'd have 32's if I didn't have a ****ing longbed.

Did you prep the trim before painting it?

Hoes does having a long bed keep you from having 32's?

3" BL and 35's w/ maxed bars vs. 5" rcd 3" BL and 35's.



I think if 35's are gonna be your DD til you get a suspension lift, you'll be 'okay'. Remember what I said in your other thread...your wheel backspace is 1/2" more outside than mine which makes the tires closer to the flare bottom and closer to the valence...aka much more of an opportunity to rip both off compared to mine. I'd say if you have to do it, remove the grille gaurd, remove the valence or trim it nicely(you should already be trimmed anyway), and remove the front flares at least. I did rub the inner fender at full lock...you however, may not because of the extra 1/2" sticking out.

I will say though.....3" BL w/ maxed bars and 35's was a perfect sized truck. And some of those pics above...just look plain badass.

And, I can't be Shane if I wasn't at least somewhat of a dick.... IDK what thread to put all this info and pics into because you've got freakin 12 active topics on just about all the same stuff. bahhhhhhhhhh!! lol!
