are you kidding the truck is filthy dirty... gotta wash it...

as far as cranking the Tbars, no thanks, ill pass. While doing that makes the truck sit level, as soon as you put weight in the bed, the truck looks like its dragging its ***. And since that truck is the main mover having it drag-*** isnt cool. Plus, I like the look of the truck with out the tbars cranked. call me old fashioned.

You need to paint your brake drums black. It doesn't look good red. The wheels are tires don't look to bad though.

looks good, but Think that you need a little more lift in the front.. Tires look too stuffed IMO.. looks like you would have some rubbing issues?

New rims and tires look great, but I was also a fan of the older set-up you had going. The stockers painted gunmetal looked ****!
