He meant PITA (pain in the @$$) I think black wheels really set off a white truck. it would look better lowered but like you said man, one step at a time. Looks really good btw

i Lowered the front like 2.5 in an the rear like 2 in. I need to raise the front up some it is sitting on the bump stops. But it easy to lower a edge just take out the block an let the bolts down on the torsion bars

I like it man truck looks awesome I love those rims on it. x2 the emblem does look a little off centered but an easy fix. Keep up the good work! I'd drop it a little more though.

Wow a boy. Another trucker in the family. LOL. I had to put my truck on the back burner when my 1st came along, a girl.
Took me 30+ years to get back to my truck. Dance recitals, braces, cheer leading practice, T-ball, soccer, LIFE happened.
But I never forgot about my dream truck. Now my grandson, he's 3 now, HELPS me work on my truck.
My daughter pretends she's pi**ed when he comes in covered in oil, grease. She just shakes her head and cleans him up.
She tells me "you're turning your grandson into a REDNECK." I just smile and nod my head. LOL

Black wheels on a white truck is the only way to go nice choice also on the wheel. I think the height you have it at now is pretty nice I wouldn't change it but thats just me

alot of people shave the bumpstops a little to gain some extra wiggle room. Or install low profile ones.
