your truck looks really good. I also have 285/75R16 Goodyear Tires (Goodyear MTR's old style) on 16x8 wheels and really like the look. I put the Belltech shackles on at the the 1" lift setting and cranked the t-bars for 2" lift. Check out my gallery/album for some pics. Its my sons truck and he is going for the "rally truck" look as he calls it... so that's the direction that we are headed with it... cool truck, thanks for posting the pics!

Thanks for the compliments everyone. I am super pleased with the way it looks accept my truck is no longer a truck. I have to be careful not to rub. Full crank left and right no problem but big bumps and bumps in corners very mild rub. I don't think I could take it off road this way.

It is very stuffed. Over speed bumps I have to slow down and that is not what a truck is for.

Sorry to disappoint but I ordered the PA body lift before reading your guys reply's

Well, since the BL is already on it's away. Please use gap guards. Trucks look so bad with huge gaps in the fenderwells. Since you have a hitch, please correct it. Lose the tailpipe tip while you're at it

Just a few suggestions

Looks great. One thing that will accent your new black wheels; painting your rear drums black.

Thanks for all the tips. After the install is done I will correct everything. I am going to fab up some gap guards, fix the hitch and i might weld in a new elbow to turn the exhaust back up to the body.

Nice looking truck, makes me wish I had found a black FX4 instead of DSG. Black wheels with white letters out look great. Looks alot like Fullscales truck.

After a week of full driving I would defiantly say my setup is not ideal.
I live downtown Toronto and my driving style is "Get out of my way you Idiot"
I hop curbs, hit speed bumps, do u-turns and run over cyclists. lol
The body lift will put me back on the war path.

The shackles will help but the problem is in the front. Without a body lift I will say pre-key is a must. It does rub over speed bumps. Hope this helps

nothing wrong with a bodylift! done properly they look fine.

you could probably get away with prekeys and preblock, or shackle..

when i prekey'd my 08 i gained 2" w/ a mild tbar crank.. and ditch the 08 block (1.25") for a real 2.5"!! then after that just bodylift it, because bigger is usually better!
great looking truck so far!
