Looks great man!! I always thought 265's looked good with a 3" lift but a lot of guys hate it for some reason. The truck looks awesome! What size AAL? Do you have the TSB 4 leaf pack? And what are your rear hub to fender measurements?





And more pics!!!

Have anymore straight side-view pics?! I'm curious how it sits. Also what are your hub to fender measurements? I have the exact setup but with a 2" AAL ready to go on. Just curious

Thanks
