Its funny that your wife said that. My wife had a fit when i said i was going to take off the stx decals. That's the whole reason she agreed to let me buy it. I just dont feel like i can call it my truck with purple and pink stripes....

Well i've gotten the 32x11.50 Bighorns on my 164ps and got them on the truck. I love the way it looks. The rims are -18mm offset(4" bs) and they set about flush with the fender flares. Had to trim my lower front valence to help clear them and may have to do a little work to the bumper itself(may rub while braking hard and turning, or if flexed offroad), but i have zero rub at full lock.

I plan on taking the decals off, painting the flares, grille, bumpers this weekend and see how it all turns out this weekend. My headlights should be here next week. Should be a transformation in the next week or so, i'll get pics of the progress this weekend.

Thanks, I don't think it's too bad for a 94 with 203k miles. It has some dings and scratches but that's fine with me since i'm going to use it to mess around with in the woods and take the trash off with it. There is one dent on the drivers rear of the bed that's pretty large so i may try to get most of that out.

Thanks man. I don't know what they retail for, i got them through my tire distributor through my shop. I think i have $560-570ish in them plus tax. They'd probably retail for $630-650

Thanks. I think with a few minor adjustments here and there, it'll look a pinch better. Still need to get the dent out of the LR part of the bed, put in the open center caps on the front wheels, put the headlights in, and tint the windows. After i do all that i'll post up pics again and then i think i'll be done with the exterior.

Heck yeah all that sounds good. Only thing I would add to that is changing that 4x4 to a newer looking one
