I've wanted to do it since the day I bought it... Now it's long paid off and I finally did it. It's mild drop, 3/4, but I still love it.

(it's not on the jack stands, they were just there before I lifted it)

I know I should have cleaned up around the truck before I snapped... but I was in a hurry. next I need a new front valance and I'm going to replace the grill. Then probably the hood. The truck was my DD and work truck (deliveries) for 5 years, so I'm really happy that it's still in the shape that it is, but it needs TLC.


oh yeah, and if anyone ever saw the pic I posted of my old house:

here's my new pad, we just moved last month:

saving for a 1st house... then a much needed bigger house was another reason I wasn't spending on the truck yet....

thanks guys. No rubbing at all, except a little on the bump stops as I have the factory ones still in. I can wiggle them and get a screwdriver under them so I don't think they are actually holding it up at all.

I keep looking at it and thinking "now that's how it's supposed to look". Lower would be nice, but this will get me by for now.


i've hated those wheels on every truck i've seen them on...










until yours. lookin good!

LOL, thanks man. There aren't any real good shots of them up there all polished up. They shine really nice. I actually got the Rims+tires brand new for $500 a couple months ago. I needed tires bad and found these on craigslist. tires still had all the little nubs on them. The guy drove his Denali supposedly straight to the tire shop from the dealership. beats the OEM 16" rims I had on there.

thanks man. I've been thinking about debadging it for a while. I've been torn, but I'm shopping door poppers and planning on shaving the tailgate soon so I guess that seals the deal! LOL
