    Very clean looking build! Quick question, the billet grille that you're running, is that a full grille replacement or did you paint / plastic dip it? I like the satin finish a lot.


    Same thing with the bottom of your bumper? Plastic dipped or just painted when you color matched it?

    Nice looking truck, I dig those wheels. How long have you had those falkens and how are they holding up? I leaning toward a set for myself, trying to get some good feedback on them.

    The billet grille was a cut out replacement, had to cut out the main piece of the grille. It's still from my stock grille. I plasti-dipped the entire thing to get that flat black look.

    The bottom bumper I purchased from a member on here (Stup1dHurts)
    I believe he just did the bottom valence in a permanent flat black finish.

    I've had the Falkens for over a year and a half now and they are holding up great! Get the Wildpeak A/T's they've held up amazingly!

    I have LSD, no locker. I'd supercharge it if I knew I was keeping the 5-lug for life

    Hey man, nice truck:thumbsup:. How does it perform with the 31's? Is there a noticeable power loss?

    31's rode great, there is a noticeable power loss but you've gotta expect that when you change tire sizes drastically.

    I have 30's right now, and I really can't tell much of a difference over stock. I was thinking about going up to 31's next time I buy tires. Sorry to see that your truck got totaled :eek:. You had a nice looking rig.

    Well my 5-lugger was wrecked in a 6 car accident cause by a drunk driver. That's the long story short

    Yup, 6-lug is the plan thus far. I think thats the 99% verdict.

    Yeah man I'm doing just fine. Screw drunk drivers, thats all i have to say. haha but yeah I'm all good :D thanks for asking.

    That's a solid plan, did they ever catch the idiots that ran?

    From what I know so far, no. They may have and I haven't been informed yet. But I'm going to have to say no so far.
