It needs to be lower with those rims and tires. General rule of thumb for me with low profile tires is the gap above them shouldn't be larger than the sidewall.

I think it looks pretty good. A larger series tire would help though. Then there wouldn't be as much wheel gap. I really like the headlights though.

if ya lived in some place like tampa or new orleans it would fit right in. its a great start, and with the right work, will look great, but its too tall right now. tires and rims are fine, but grab some drop spindles, flip your rear shackle, and get it down another 3+ inches.

get her here, and it wont look so cholo.

His truck is an edge. That's probably as low as he can go on t-bars.

I think it still needs to go lower with those low pro tires. Check out DJM if you want it lower they might have a kit to drop it a little more in the front but I can't remember for sure if they do or not.

Definitely on the right track now but I agree just a little more low would be even better!

If you want someone to say your truck is awesome, go pay a hooker. They do things I wouldn't do for cash.

i didn't think i liked it at first but the more i look the cooler i think it is. obviously could use to be lowered some more but overall the truck is definitely cool. i'm diggin the whole green theme as well.

You bought the wrong truck man, the sport/edge package is working against you. The t-bars make it hard to lower enough to look right, and even if you did the giant fender flares would look weird.

Its also begging for some rear discs.

I like the green (sorta) but I'm NOT a fan of ricers. Go lower to make it look better.
