Truck looks good man. I like the way our trucks sit with the FB lift.

Edit: disregard I just saw the 15x7 in your icon.
Agreed man. Stance is just right. I dig the 15x7, the 235s just barely stick out beyond the fender and the 31's should be just beyond, nothing crazy but definitely better than the skateboard looking stock steel.

Yeah I am tired of the pizza cutter look. These tires only have 4k miles so I have a while until new rubber. But the wheels will help a bit.

I definitely do not need new tires, but a local guy posted up some general grabbers on CL for a fair price. Got about 2/3 tread left, asking for less than 2/3 of the cost. Went to check them out and they are just as advertised. Soooo, I couldn't help myself. Should be able to get a decent number for my tires, they're practically new.

You need to post some new pics, man, what are you on now? I just saw lowered shots from your build thread.

Yeah I gotta get some pics up. I have the FB lift, like mentioned, and 235/75/15 Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor. Got the tires when I went back to stock, then decided to do the FB lift. Poor planning on my end haha.

Building a tube bumper in the next month or so with a buddy of mine. Might do one for the rear also. That will def get some pictures up.

I am wondering what fog lights you used. I want to install them on my 2010 access cab. Also, did you use the switch that came with them?

I got amazon ones, i think it was these guys. Came with the OEM style switch http://www.amazon.com/Lights-Replace...oma+fog+lights

Pretty easy to install, took a little bit of doing, but there were some really helpful youtube videos I dug up, and some helpful comments in the reviews.

Yeah It is just a little bit at full steering in both directions.

The Grabbers look f'ing sick by the way.

Update

A couple updates. Tinted the taillights and got a seat cover from a TW member (thanks disc0monkey), lumbar support makes a HUGE difference.
