    I'll have to clean up the equipment one day and get some pics of it all together....

    You should have seen it when I got it a few months ago! The previous owner doesn't even recognize it now haha!! It looks alot different, everyone that I meet asks where I got the truck and I tell them and they don't beleive me, the previous owner owns a auto repair shop in town alot of people know him and knew the truck... All of the "modifications/upgrades/accessories" was stuff I've done to it..... it was plain jane bone stock when I got 'er... he did have a fuel plate in it but thats it no other mods at all.... The next things I do to it are ladder bars, 4,000 rpm governor spring kit, and coil spacers to level it 2".

    Real bad pic, can't hardly see well, but it had chevy 4x4 decals on the back of the bedsides, had some really gay light blue and pink stripes with goofy designs in 'em, I took all that stuff off the second day I had the truck (first day I had it we had to mow all day lol)

    Here she is a little over a month ago, full pulling at our county fair (I pull with it a little here and there, dirt drags and a couple mud bogs too)... with the old 33x14.50 Super Swamper SSR's.. full pull is 300', I went 314' and was still moving with power and traction when they were flaggin me to stop, I was running out of track!

    Nice truck, looks slick with the new MT/s and the tint. Dont imagine you'll ever have to second guess towing just about anything. I would have gone blackwalls out on the mt/s, but thats just me. Sharp looking truck

    Thanks ya'll..... tires were on the rims mounted that way when I got 'em so I had no choice...

    I bought a set of Mickey Thompson Classic II's Alloys today, 17x9's, they're going on tomorrow so check back in for pics of that!!!

    Might get 2" coil spacers/leveling kit to clear them a little better but that will be a few days away if I do need them (would have to be ordered)....

    And yes, she's a big time tow slut... its like she's addicted, the bigger the load, the better... I pulled out my old mud truck today, these tires do great in mud, I'm thinking and hoping they do awesome in the snow...
