Udated this as my build thread, now i gotta figure out how to change the title of the thread

Btnewman 05-13-2013 10:24 AM

Pm a mod, they are usually pretty quick about doing that

BBtacosurfer 05-15-2013 04:20 PM

Your truck looks great...I'm loving the look of the 265 Duratrecs with your lift. Your truck makes me reconsider 33s and going with 32s. Keep up the good work.

PS78 05-15-2013 07:00 PM

Thanks dave, next set for me will be 285/70/17's though. Not enough tire when wheeling and aired down in my opinion, otherwise the 265/70/17's are great!!!

NYCO 05-17-2013 10:58 AM
