    no hurry haha, just wondering cuz i've def decided on getting wheels like urs. prob gonna go with a 15x8 with 3.75 BS, so it'll stick out 1.75 inches more than my stock alloys which should look sick

    Yeah that would look great! Go with M/t's, thats the one regret I have. I need A/ts for now because of the rediculous amount of miles Im having to drive monthly but once I move to Nc Im switching out for M/ts if I keep the truck. I just think they look and sound alot better and make the truck more aggresive looking.

    The angle on the parking space makes the trucks front height look a little funny in the photo :confused: But I did get a new front tag while I was there!

    Hey thanks, and yeah the headlights surprised me on how good the quality was. Most import eBay truck parts are pos! Be sure to let me know when you get yours so I can see them. I also believe thats your truck on the top of the site? Congrats on that dude.

    i agree the Mt's do look a lot sweeter but i do a shit ton of driving and not much off roading so the benefits of the gas mileage really out weigh the looks and off road capabilities. prob just gonna go with the bfg at's like u have on since they are only 150 bucks a tire for the 32x11.5's

    Honestly, I couldnt figure it out so I let a good friend of mine with an auto shop do it when we installed them. I dont think they were even off that much though. I would ask one of our more intelligent members haha Sorry I cant be of more help

    As far as aiming headlights:

    1. Start just far enough back from a wall to have room to walk in front of truck
    2. Turn on lights
    3. Tape a T shape in the center of each headlight's circle of light
    4. Back up to 25 feet on the same flat surface
    5. Adjust headlights so that they are slightly lower and to the right of the Ts
    6. Voila! (That's frenchy for all done) ;)
