Looks awesome dude. The mirrors are huge, but I guess you need em for towing.

Looks great man. Those wheels are perfect for your truck, good choice.
thanks, i got them used, so thats why they are on there, i had originally planned on 17s, and still have two sets of 17s hummer h2s and boyd coddington hotrod 8s, thought about using one of those sets to put a cheap set of 38" used mud tires on, either that or upgrade the nittos to some 38" tires on the 20s after i do the shackle flip, and crank it up about another 1" in the front

please please get rid of the bed rails.
umm lemme think about it....no, they hide a big crease on the top of the bed rails from pulling a 5th wheel at too sharp of an angle up a hill off road, well its not as noticeable now because of the bed liner, but still they grew on me, and they were free

man that truck looks good, but i HATE how much the front end is sticking out!
ya i hate it too, my only problem with the fabtech other than the non full drop, i had thought about some wheels with more backspacing to make up for it (would actually let me run a taller tire, these wheels make the 14" wide tire just barely rub the fender flare at full lock under compression, like half an inch more backspacing it would miss completely, guess i could trim it), i actually had to put 2" spacers on the rear to make the front/rear track width come close to matching because it really bothered me

I know what you mean man...that is basically one of the MAIN reasons I don't like any of the fabtech lifts. Dont get me wrong...the truck looks awesome, but having all the tire out from under the truck just looks odd from the front.

P.S. Kudos to you for not taking what I said as a personal attack and for being kewl about what was said.

I like the way the front end looks, makes it more aggressive looking. Probably alot harder to keep clean though.

I hear ya man and I cant believe you got the lift for free.

Also I think everyone here realizes that our IFS isn't going to flex so very few people have any room to talk on here :endofshow
