Grill looks great. Lights look great. Tires look really small though. The wheels will look good painted.
I have spacers on stock wheels in the back but they wouldnt fit the front.

that looks great. i got fender flares, so i think 1 or 1.25 in the front and 1.5 in the back would do the trick

tint those corner lights the yellow doesn't fit and ya 31x10.5 would have probably filled those fenders a little better but it's a clean looking truck.

That sounds good, just make sure the center bore of the front spacer is large enough.

I think I got the spacer thing figured out finally. Gonna order them Friday.

The corner lights will soon be clear/black corners. Still a work in progress

Should have painted the wheels before the tires, less worry about overspray.

well i didnt want the tire shop to scratch the paint. i'd rather take my time and mask off the tire and do it right after new tires are on.

on another note, just ordered lug centric 1.5" wheel spacers. should be in in about a week. after the painted rims the offset tires will look sweet!

Dont run spacers.... your truck will ride like ****. I bought some 1" spacers for the back of my truck, and the thing hated them. the rear end would bounce going down the highway and would just handle aweful, worst thing i ever did was get spacers. Get some rims with an agressive negative offset, you will thank yourself later.

Coopers are great tires; I am sure you will love them. You pay for the tires, not the name or advertising.
