    Hey guys, if you didn't know, I've been asking around about lifts and tires for my truck and I finally made my decisions and got my lift and wheels/tires.
    So, here's my truck, I love it, tell me what you think.

    Before lift

    After lift

    http://i682.photobucket.com/albums/vv183/jswords1167/IMG_1002.jpg

    I had a ReadyLift SST 3" lift installed. In my opinion, it's a great lift for the price.

    After the Lift, Tire, and Wheels

    http://i682.photobucket.com/albums/vv183/jswords1167/IMG_1018-1.jpg

    The Wheel I have are 16x8 Dick Cepek DC-1s.
    The tires are 285/75/16 Nitto Terra Grapplers.
    Oh, and if you have noticed, yes my hub caps aren't installed, 4wheelparts failed to send me my screws for it.

    I love the new look of my truck, how about yall?

    Sweet looking wheels and tires. Good job! Any rubbing? Did you have to do any trimming?

    Looks great! Don't forget there is a build thread (subforum). I suspect this will probably get moved to there. :)

    Yea I had to do minor trimming, I didn't have to, but I got weird looks when it rubbed and made a spine chilling sound.

    I've got those same tires on the way to me right now. Good thing you only had to do minor trimming.
