Hey guys, I got some new parts put on the truck and some new rubber. Around 3-4" in front, and 4-5" in back, tires are 37's.
Have a good season everyone:waving:

The truck looks awesome, but I would get tired just climbing in and out of it.

Be sure to rotate those tires every 5K or so. Mine have worn kind of funny. Expensive tires!

Yeah it's not too bad, just gotta get used to it. I had a level kit on it before and I was so used to it I just slid right in, it's only a couple inches higher now. Helps that I'm 6'1" though.

It maybe the pictures but it looks like the rims are a little too narrow for your tires so keep a eye on the tire wear you might see the center of the tread wear pretty quick. I assume it is Cummins powered so if your pulling a heavier trailer it will feel a little squirmy on the back end.

Truck looks good for a Dodge :laugh:

Black trucks look good just hard to keep looking good at least it isn't a plain white truck like everybody else drives :drinkup:

I know a ton of guys running these tires on stock wheels, they seem to do okay as far as wear, I will just rotate a lot.

I had 35's on before these and it felt fine towing.

If I could have any truck, it would be exactly what you have. I'm hoping to buy an 07-09 Dodge 2500 cummins this year. Is that your lexus in the garage? My girlfriend wants the gx470

No they're real. I don't really see the point in blocking them out, you can see anyones plates if you drive on the road:confused:

Thanks man. In front I just got longer coils, and in back I got some additional leafs and a 2" block. Actually rides pretty nice.

It's probably the huge aftermarket chrome wheels, or the huge chrome stacks sticking out of the bed, or the huge aftermarket bumper, or the chrome door handles and vent visors.

It doesn't have ugly rims, chrome junk, stupid stickers, smoke stacks, mirrored lights, line-x where paint should be, etc. It looks fine to me.

Don't add any of those things I mentioned:laugh:
