Traded in the Ranger, Bought a Monster Truck!

Okay well i didn't really trade in my truck, but i did get my rims yesterday and finally got my tires mounted.

You can also notice my "bedlined"(in a can) grill and front valance. i still gotta do it to the back plastic peice. otherwise my truck is getting closer to what i've wanted.

you can also see the Maglight mount i put in as well!

heres a picture from earlier today, Taken with nikon 80-200mm :)



heres my new tires, 33x12.5x15 BFG M/T's on crager D window 15x8 with 3.75 backspacing.





There a little stuffed in there, but i still gotta crank my bars, put my expo Leafs on the back, and hopefully soon Body Lift it so it will be even higher.

trimmed the front valance a bit, otherwise no rubbing now on DD status, i'm scared to hit some mud without the bodylift. ha

For gears i'm only 3.73 so i've noticed the power not being there. but its not even really that bad.

of course i wanna get an 8.8 rear and regear the front. the open diff sucks so thats a main thing i wanna do.

Completely different man. A tbar truck sits about 2-3" higher then a coil sprung truck.

Looks good man. The tires made the flareside camper shell look way better! Now put a rack on the top!

Yea I got 3.73's as well and I'm not sure if I wanted to upgrade cause of the power loss. But if you say it isn't that bad I might invest in a set.
