Cleaned up the new truck and tried on the new shoes!

Had an amazing day today weather wise it was close to 60* and sunny today in February!

Bolted up 2 of the new alcoas to see how they look. Defiantly need some tires now for sure.

Thanks I love it! The LSD makes all the difference in the world driving on wet roads I can't wait to get some mods done on it.

Ya I am torn I love the alcoa's but I really like the stock FX4 wheels too. Its all going to depend on what I can find tires wise for a good price.

Also picked up a set of the Platinum HVAC controls off ebay for $10 gonna steal the overlay and slap them on mine. Should match the gauges nicely.

I think the FX4 rim is my all time favorite rim so far. I loved the alcoas in 02 but now I would take the Y spoke or FX4 5 spokes.

That would be a hard choice, I really like both also, I'd go stick with the 5 spokes and taller tires for now. Keep the alcoas though.

I know I mentioned this yesterday lol but i'm going to say it again so you don't ruin that truck.

GO WITH THE FX4 WHEELS! LOL. They are so much better looking. And that toredor red is my favorite color.

Thanks guys! Got the new truck right at the beginning of the year. My dad decided to trade in my truck and gave me his ranger for a great price.

The BFG'S? They were crap, lol had maybe 30% tread on them at best. I sold them sunday for $160. I love my toyo's they are just to small but I can't justify getting rid of brand new tires.
