Looks good, but you desperately need center caps on the front. What are the grey things on the front bumper? Lights?

2WD-4banger........... about all the tire height this truck will handle w/o suffering in the towing hauling arena. Might go taller once it is lifted a few inches and re-geared.

But, I agree, would look a little better that way. I do far too much towing and hauling with it and most of that is in in the mountains.

Yeah, was nice meeting you too. Sorry it was so brief.

The caps wont fit over the hub. I might have to use the "persuader" on it tomorrow. (hammer)

Aaahhhhhh, I wondered why those wheels looked familiar. I bet those lights are uber bright. Front end looks a little cluttered up with all the lights imo.

Function > form ..........for me. I do a lot of night driving in the mountians. The lower lights are hooked to a ECU with a Yaw sensor to trigger during cornering. The Xenons will llight a reflector 2 miles away......yes, very bright.
