I can't really decide what size tires I want to go with......Lol Just have been watching craigslist for any deals.

I found some 315/75r16's which are a little bigger than my 285/75r16's. I don't know though....

OR just some 285/75/r16 BFG's...... hmmm choices choices...

Do I need to say I knew about this before anybody else!?!?!?!

Diggin it man, glad to know I have another 92-97 Heavy Duty brother on here!

Before I got mine, I looked and drove a 96 crew cab short bed 7.3, but it needed a ton of work, so I walked and picked up my 96 460. I friggin love the truck. Miss my ranger from time to time, but then I just have to jump in the 250 and take it for a drive, and I don't regret selling the Ranger after that.

Keep the short mirrors man, the extended mirrors, the one's that bolt into the door in that triangular shape, look like crap. I have no issue with my short mirrors at all.

nice freddie, with that body style of truck, make sure that you rinse inbetween the rear inner fender and bedside frequently so dirt doesnt sit in there, thats usually the reason they rust

Any tips on what % tint to go? I'm thinking 10% rears and rear sides, and 15% front sides. I am considering 5% rear and rear sides though. What do you guys think?

Legality isnt an issue, 50% is the darkest that's legal on the front sides, so if I'm going to go past that, I might as well go all out anyways LOL.

On a side note, no matter what %, the local shop which I've heard GREAT things about said $140 and they use Llumar tint.

I agree! The good news is that i already have a high pressure oil pump, so my next mod will be valve springs, followed by a fuel system, and then rods/pistons! :)
