I think the wheels look good. I may consider getting those eagle wheels so I can lose the fake beadlocks

Crank them bars man!!!

Here's me pic-whoring out my truck.

Before crank:


After:


Point is, Crank them bars dude!

I got like 1.5-2 inches out of the crank, I have zero rubbing now, and I like the way it rides/drives more now as well.
I've thought about switching it up wheel-wise, and I'd like something similiar to the DC-1, with the black and polished/chrome, but not the DC-1's.

Your truck looks good, just crank the bars man, it makes it look 8 times better.
