    future upgrades i think are going to be Dynomax Muffler and some seat covers. after that i should be good for a while . . . . at least that is what i tell myself

    I think after the muffler. I will look into adding a trailer hitch. I need something to haul my mountain bike around without taking up bed space.

    I got my insurance claim money from a lady rear ending me. The damage was only about a 4-5" dent that I can barely notice. I think I'm going to look for a used one and use the rest of the money for a muffler. Then with the rest I guess I'll be responsible and pay my bills :(

    Truck looks great man. There is a part of me that wants to get the lift and go 31's but I think it's more realistic to do what you did and go with the 235's.

    Your truck looks very sharp and clean, looking forward to more!

    Thanks. I'm glad I ended up with the 235's, I think they fit and look pretty good.

    I should have done white out on my tires. What are your plans for your wheels? or are there any?

    Funny you said that. I just had my tires turned to the black side. I'm going for a clean boring color so that's why I switched them back to black.


    I think I'm going to paint the rims the same way you have yours.
