    First off, the pic makes it look like the front is higher than the rear, but it's not, it's actually dead level. So you can just cover the back of the truck with your hand if you have to.:)

    What I want to know is, does it look like it's lifted too much for these tires?

    Let me know what you think.

    I'm with those above me, a larger tire would look a little better but it definitely isn't necessary and looks good as is.

    Looks the way a mildly lifted 1st gen should look. :)

    I guess the visual ideal is the Arctic Trucks look, but keep in mind these trucks have less suspension travel than stock.
