    Thanks man they are sick. they look was better in person and there not that loud on the free way as I thought they would be.

    Ive read on many sites you cant go over 2.5" lift on the front with 4wd unless you drop the front.
    How are your CVs holding up with 3+"???

    I know it Kinda does I'm getting some bushwacker cut a way's soon to cover a little more of the tire. But I'm loving the stance of the truck now I just need to get it off road flexin to see how much more I need to cut. I think with the big wide bushwackers it will look more like the arctic trucks I wasn't really going for the arctic look but I like it.

    i got tired of my LED dome flickering when the truck was off so I ran a wire from the dome to the reading light on the driver side. works like a charm now and i have more light when getting in the truck at night.

    Today I did the FasTrack mod I live in the bay where we have tolls on the bridges. I didn't want it on my windshield so it's been in the clove box for about 2 years and I had to take it out every time I go over the bridge. I thought of doing this I tested it before I stuck it on there and it worked. Now all I have to do is open the console when I go over the bridge.

    I also added a dock for my phone so I can see my GPS when I'm driving.

    I'm not a smoker so I just put it in the place of the ashtray.

    I did remove the metal that holds the ashtray after I took the picture.

    Great looking truck, it looks bad to the bone!!! Tell me more about your opinion on the duratrac tires after running them. I had a set of Toyo M/T's in 33" but changed out because they were very loud on the road and stiff as a board offroad...I am leaning toward going with the duratrac next time I purchase tires...

    Thanks man. I love the DuraTracks there not to loud but you can here them on the high way. I still haven't taken them off road much but I drove them on the free way today and hit a puddle at 65mph and was ready to hydroplane but they stuck like glue. So from what I have experienced the these tires I highly recommend buying them. I'm going off road next weekend to really put them to the test.

    So i went out to the RR Tracks last weekend to see how bad I rub off road and i got a lot of work to do. I'm rubbing bad on the inner fender well at full lock when i hit bumps. So I'm going to be breaking out the welder and moving my inner fender back about 1 1/2" so I can stuff the front tires at full lock.

    Here's a few shots I took parked on a dirt mound.

    I got the 33's stuffed more then i thought they would.

    That's right! I'm not moving it as much as that guy but it's the same idea. I'm just barley rubbing in the fender well I'm going as far as removing the fender to do it. There is just a few key spots that need moved back I going to pound them in a little be this week and if i clear it i will leave it the way it is but I'm sure I'm going to be removing something.

    I don't want to do a body lift and i have the welder and the knowhow so I'm doing it.
