    The blocks are the best rear lift option for the money as the truck will never be used for off roading.

    Looks good. I agree about the blocks, they do justice for the price.

    It surprisingly looks good I didn't think 18's would look good on a 1st Gen but it looks good man :thumbsup: "For a street truck ;):D"

    Thanks for the great feedback... I had a really hard time with the wheels and I almost sold them right after i bought them. I could never find a good looking combo for 18's. All of the good looking 1st gens had 16's on them. After a lot of searching, I decided to on the nittos sand the tire combo could not look better in my opinion. Very happy with the end result.

    I've been wanting to tint the fronts but haven't had a chance. Has anyone had luck with matching the factory rear tints? 20%?
