prove it!! we love pictures around here!

what size of tire where you running previously??
how many miles are on your current brakes?

i went from a 255 to a 33x12.5 and didnt notice a HUGE difference.. sure it takes a little longer to stop but just give yourself some extra distance.

Looks good man, but you really need to level it out.. that rake is bad. I'm not a fan of a torsion bar crank, but in your case... you need it.

Is your driveway slanted? Looks like you need Prekey mod and/or tbar crank for level.

Truck looks great, almost makes me reconsider switching to 15x8. How does the truck look from the side? I wanna see a pic to show how far in/out those tires sit!?
