    First picture I took of the truck, the truck looked even different before this, it had a grill guard on it, super dirty and filthy and was in need of a big detail. I bought the truck from a family friend, $5500 with 139,000 miles. Super good deal ImageUploadedByTapatalk1459650062.718926.jpg

    I already added tint, and de badged and de molded plus a small polish on the paint, looks alright but not good enough at all

    Should've taken some progress pictures but I didn't because I was lazy lol. In this picture I color matched the bumper cap, black lower valance, color matched door handles with chrome middle, color matched mirrors with chrome caps, and some color matched fender flares, the flares and handled look okay doing it myself, matching good but in some light you can tell it's a shade off, might take the flares off once I get wheels. Bumper and mirror look good but will get re done by a actual shop later on but for now I'm happy with my work.

    Truck is looking good. I would go with the 726's.

    I love the gear 726c wheels. I was planning to get those myself. Great looking wheels IMO

    Yes I do love the 726's, I want to do the 20x12 but I'm sure I'm gonna rub, the previous owner has already done some trimming to fit the old 33's and 16x8 -22 MT wheels but I'm sure I could do more trimming, I really do plan on doing a 1.5 zone body lift also so that will help too.

    Those are nice too. There's a guy on Custom Offsets that claims he has the 726 20x12 -44 and clears is the minor trimming and a leveling kit. I feel as if it would need to be quite hacked up

    I don't believe some people that say that, I think they had to cut and beat that inner fender to stuff these wheels in there. My truck has the rough country leveling kit already on it and the fender measures at 39.25. So with the body lift I'll probably sitting around 41 which I've seen the exact setup on a truck and it clears 20x12 with no rub

    You stole that truck, I'm super jealous. You can still buy 20X9 Ultra preds I think. Why not go for those and those trail graps?

    Yes I'm very appreciative I got the truck for such a good deal. I would only get the 20x10 preds because I love the stance of them and that big lip on the inside, such a shame they are discounted because I really wanted a set of them, looked everywhere and can't find any so oh well.

    I paid $1156, free shipping, free set of lugs, valve stems and valve caps, pretty good deal i think and the best deal for them around.
