Cleaned the truck up today

Finally got the truck all washed up for the first time since the lift. I thought I better post up some new pics... all the other ones I've posted have been either night pics or cell phone pics. My camera skills are nothing to be proud of but I think a few of them turned out pretty good.























Here's a pic of my truck in the same location, nearly stock taken about 8 months ago.



And when I was all done I got these all cleaned up, ready to be packed away in my Ultra boxes for who knows what project someday down the road!

the bars themselves aren't that bad.. just where the brackets touched it.. the brackets could use a sand blast then new coat of rust paint cause its got like an oily rubber on them thats caked with sand

Looks good! How do you like those tires? Do they vibrate at all on the road?

Maybe next year... I'm going to run it like this for a while. I'll see what the situation is when these shocks wear out! That may not be all that far away.... lol

There is a slight shake in my steering wheel at about 80km/h and up. I don't have it completely nailed down to the tires yet though I'm pretty sure that's what the problem is. It's nothing extreme, it's only noticeable to see when I'm not touching the wheel... you just feel it a bit at times. The tires are super quite though, I love them! I haven't got to really test them out yet but it'll happen soon!
