New wheels/tires.

So I got some new(to me) wheels and tires.. I have been waiting to get these for a while, and can't stop smiling now that I have. I think the truck looks a million times better..

I did have to shim the bumper 1.5", and trim this little piece off the bumper. I have zero rubbing so far. I do plan on doing a Dana 60 swap and bumping the height up another 2" to have around 4" of lift, but for now, this will do.

35x12.5r17 BFG KM2's and MB Razor wheels....

Sweet truck man! Once you lift it up 2" more it'll be perfect! Are those zabeard's old wheels? They look great on your truck with those new KM2's. What are you planning to nightshade, if I may ask?

I agree it needs to be a little higher up front though.

Thanks for all the compliments guys!

I plan to niteshade the taillights lightly, then clearcoat them. They have a very dull finish right now.

As for the front, its 1.5" lower than the rear. I plan to level it out when I do the D60, but until then, this is how she'll sit.
