new tires... Hercules Hercules Hercules!

Firestone wouldn't align my truck because the ball joints were too bad. So after replacing tie rod ends, ALL control arm bushings, ALL ball joints and getting new tires... I think she looks pretty nice.

I just gotta get those light tabs made up and install my offroad lights.
btw they are Hercules (Cooper) Terra Trac AT 30x9.5x15

Let me know what you think.



and how she used to sit a few years back...

I bought a house and I needed to get mulch and haul twice a year and haul a trailer for all my outdoor landscaping projects that typically involved large rocks/ busted conrete. and living on a dirt road too, it just wasn't practical. There's no life on the truck, just the tires. I'm pleased with how she is these days.

And yeah I haven't posted much... this is the first "big" thing I've done to my truck in like 5 years.

BTW thanks for the nice replies.

Wheel and suspension change and she looks completely different! Good looking pickup and if you ever decide to change her back you already know how to do it!

Nice!

I love the way it looked. But as Kris said, function first.

The rims look like Ion alloys. I might be wrong though.

Not sure, I'll look on the hubcap cover and let you know tomorrow. I grabbed em off craigslist like a year ago and they had some crappy street tires on em.

I swapped beds with another ranger guy because I couldn't haul anything in a stepside bed.

They are MB Motoring wheels. Not sure of the exact model name, but I know the newer ones don't have the black on them... they are all brushed.

Thanks 99offroadrngr... I forgot about this thread, but yeah that's the name of the rims. The newer styles are all brushed with no black. I kinda like them better, but I'm glad I have a decent looking aftermarket rim and some beefy tires.
