Just got the new rims put on yesterday along with some 33x12.5x18 kumho kl71's that I already had. The stock conticraps had a recall on them so they ordered me 5 new tires that I will sell when they come in. The rims are XD spy 18" with gloss black and machined finish. I know the tires are a bit small but I already had them, when these go I will be mounting a set of 35" tires on these rims. I think this setup gives the truck a sled pullin look though.

I also have an afe dpf/doc delete, h&s mini maxx with KEM's full 7 tune sd card (up to 345hp) and an afe pg7 drop in filter that I will be changing to an s&b full intake as my filter minder moves a bit. This setup is potent, I cant run the full 345 tune as I get axle wrap bad, I am going to order a set of PMF traction bars soon to cure that. since getting rid of the dpf the truck runs much smoother and I gained about 2mpg in the city, no real highway data yet though. My trans also runs cooler due to the different shift strategies and locking the tc differently.

I am getting the windows tinted soon, taking off the chrome door handles and painting the stock ones body color, working on a hid projector retrofit for a set of recon headlights I have and getting a leveling kit. Oh and the bottom portion of the rockers will be getting lineX'd ala 02Duramax!

I like the idea of the body-color door handles....But, what do you think of the large chrome emblem? That may look cool the body color too. Might be tricky tho.

I thought about doing a body color theme, but I dont want to get into painting the grill and bumpers as well. Thats why I need to leave some chrome on the truck and am prolly not going to touch the side vent emblem.

so far so good, I've had these tire for the past few winters and they wear surprisingly well for being so aggressive.

I already had these tires so thats why they went on. 35's do fit and that is what im going to put on after these tires wear out. I went with 18" rims b/c the price for 20" tires is crazy. About 325 a piece for the tires I want for a 20" rim vs. 225-250 for an 18" rim. I do agree about them being a bit small but like I said, I save a few bucks up front and it gives it that hunkered down sled puller look. 35's and a leveling kit will be going on in the fall probably. Even though I can fit 37" with a leveling kit I dont want to lose too much on the low end.

Well I have the tow chains and bars on the front of the truck because we use them so often in this business and my other work. I keep about 50' of chain on there. Its strobed in the grille, front/rear windows, and the bully bar. Im a light freak haha
