    Thanks! Yup hopefully this week I'll get the wheels on with some duratracs.

    Thank you. I know I'm stoked to have it back and being able to start the mods.

    Looking good Ruben. I might have to go for the 285's after seeing how yours will look when you get the tires and wheels on.

    Those look so sweet, I'm pretty jealous right now. I see you went with the 285's.

    yeah i'm liking them so far.

    They test fitted the 285's and nothing rubbed. So i gave them the green light to do all four.

    I may need to bang out a pinch weld for offroading (like you were saying)


    Let me know when you go to hollister!

    Haha, just wait to you flex it out. The rubbing will surface. Yeah I'm going to have to make the decision soon whether I want 285's or 265's. I may try for Hollister this weekend or possibly after I get my new shocks on. I will definitely let you know and lets see a full picture of the truck.
