Here we are after I installed pin stripes and changed my emblems

The new wheels were mounted on the tires when I bought them but my other way sicker wheels will be mounted up here again real soon.


Let me know your thoughts on all the changes boys!! I am real happy with where it has come so far.

Greg, the truck looks so good!

That BL makes the truck look so much better then it did and it already looked good.

The tires are the **** (Nitto FTMFW). The shell helped out with the rake. The expo wheels look good but I think your procomps are going to make it look even better.

I think it looks real legit.

Our trucks look alot alike but differ in alot of ways to.

Good taste.

Truck looks good Greg. I like the expo wheels, but I think your other wheels will look better. They are a bit wider too, so it will make the stance better.

For sure the Pro Comp alloy wheels will be back on here real soon I just have to find the time to get them switched over. They should help with giving the truck a little wider stance as well.

Thanks for all the complements

Greg bought the Nittos with the Expo wheels on them. He just has to switch them over to his pro comps.

Yea I got a really good deal on the tires and the wheels just came with them. I will mount up my other wheels here soon and sell these wheels and my old tires.

It should either wash out or I may even end up being ahead when its all said and done.
