    So I got my new 2011 DC Pre runner about a month ago and have done a few mods. Nothing extravagent but I've been very pleased.

    The day I got it I went to my buddies house and bought his wheels that came off his '08 with 285/75/16 BFG All Terrains and needless to say it was a huge imorovement on the steelies and training wheels that came on mine.

    Next thing I did was put on a 3" spacer Lift with a 1.5" Rear block.

    Still having an itch to do something else and couldn't leave it alone very long I found an Aries brush guard and some step bars and threw those on.

    I also threw on some cheap off road lights mainly for looks but they work pretty good so I'm prob not gonna upgrade until these break or go out. And thats how it sat for a couple weeks.

    I then got to thinking that I have a black brush guard, black step bars, black door handles, and chrome badges. So I went out and got a can of plasti-dip and did all the badges. Turned out pretty good IMO.

    Then when I got tired of getting like 10 mpg I went out and got some 265/75/16 Mastercraft Courser M/T's, threw those on and couldn't be happier. The ride improved also cuz they couldnt get the BFG's balanced right. I also added some DU seat cover's, and Iphone holder (worked out amazingly), and a CB that has yet to pick up anything. So this is how she sits now right after probably the most intense offroading I plan on doing(a rutted out dirt road on through the hunting land). Also some pictures of the interior stuff I did.

    The 285's didn't rub at all until I put the lift on and even then they only rubbed at full lock like backing out of or turning in a parking space.

    Nice truck man! Do you have any more side pics of your truck with the lift? Just curious how it sits. Thanks!

    Thanks a lot for doing that! I'm thinking about doing 3" in the front and 1.5" in the back and I'm just trying to get an idea of what it will look like, because i don't want that factory rake. I like the stance, looks like its nice and level :thumbsup:

    Is that at all from the weight of the brushguard? Or is that too light to make a difference?
