    If you don't mind, what size wheel and tires you have? How much did you have to lowered it?

    I really hate my ocean size wheel wells with the stock 15 and 215 tires.

    thanks. love your setup.

    I was really torn between magnetic gray and white. Since a white truck w/ an auto transmission showed-up in my area first, it won. I'm not really a huge fan of white, but I'm hoping that white won't absorb as much heat as the darker colors. In addition to my truck I have a black car, which looks pretty when it's clearn, but is like stepping into an oven when it's sitting outside all day... not to mention it's really hard to keep the paint nice.

    Thanks! I hated mine too. Lol I'm 3inches in the front and a little over 4inches out back. A djm full drop kit would do you just fine!

    You are correct, might go with a little less tire once these are done.
    Blacks my favorite but I like white a lot too since it looks so shiny and clean. Also my truck only looks clean for one day then I can see dirt all over it!!! :(

    brah!! i love magnetic gray i wish i had one I just get white for same reason like its a commercial vehicle color but depending on how the vehicle is built white can actually look pretty clean when done right:) i am a fan of simple clean colors and body designs i don't mind some candy on an old classic but not into Candy and really wild colors on modern vehicles

    Did you go with a polished face or solid black? I suppose we'll found-out when you get them ;) I was almost set on getting the solid black version of the Stance wheels (or the similar KOKO Koture Sardina-5 wheels shown below), but I didn't want to copy you so I went a different route.
