    This is my truck. Nothing outrageous, just simple and clean, which is how I like it.

    It has been well-kept, with all the maintenance records, and most importantly: no frame rust.:)

    Regarding the questions: It does have the stock suspension, but no rubbing with the 32s. It has a stick shift. It also has 228,000 miles, but absolutely nothing is wrong with it.

    WOW, Really sweet looking truck. I was going to ask about the tires also. I'm going to get the same tires/size for mine, if I don't buy new wheels.

    I really love the NON-Chrome front grill...!!! Can I buy one like that, or was yours painted? I really hate my chrome grill....

    Thanks

    Thanks for the compliment! My grille wasn't painted, it's just the gray one that came on the base models. The only chrome pieces on the truck are the door emblems, which is fine by me!
