This is my truck 1 week after I bought it used. It's so little!!!
My truck after one month. A 3" body lift was added,
along with some American Racing AR63 wheels, and 32"x11.50" BFG AT's
I just had to get rid of those puny tires and wheels.
My truck after a Superlift 4" suspension lift, and 33"x12.50" Super Swamper TSL Radials,and many other mods.
My truck with 36"x14.50" Super Swamper TSL Radials on Eagle Alloy 58 15x10 rims, and many more unseen mods.
