    With the 37" tires, this is a must have purchase. My first drive in to work, all my trans wanted to do was wander back and forth from 6th to 5th and back. Can't wait to have them installed.

    Damn, now I want 37's! That looks great, except I only have a 6" lift, I wonder if it would work and how it would look. Whats the width on those wheels, I'm only running 9" wide right now.

    What about the width on the wheels themselves? Sorry should have specified better.

    20170311_134641_resized.jpg 20170311_134619_resized.jpg 20170311_134611_resized.jpg I installed the LED interior light kit today. I also installed the driver side grab handle. Finally put on the new Spyder tail lights since the LED kit came in. I upgraded the reverse lights to LED. My license plate came in so through that on as well.

    It's was a good idea to have my mom verify the color. Like I told you Joon, in direct sunlight it looks Tan to me. I'm waiting for night time so I can check out all the new lights.

    I have an appointment for April 3rd to drop off my truck to have the gears and LSD installed. They are booked until then. I was hoping to have them installed before the April 1 meet. At least it's not too long a wait.

    All done! Picked up my truck yesterday. The 4.88's and the Auburn LSD are installed:D I did the long commute to work and back and the drive was so much better. The Tranny wasn't wandering back and forth between 5th and 6th gear. When I picked my truck up the average MPG was at 6:eek: After the drive to work and back I have it up to 13.6 average MPG. The first 700 miles I couldn't get the average above 12.8 so better fuel mileage is confirmed with the new gears. After my next fill up I will log the miles and then see what kind of MPG I'm really getting.

    Just a heads up. I ordered the Icon billet UCA's today. I also ordered some Rigid Fog lights to replace the weak stock lights. I will post some pic's when they come in.

    Dropped the truck off today to have a Viper alarm with remote start installed. Should be ready to pick up when I get off work tomorrow.

    Picked the truck up after work. Viper and remote start installed. It wasn't cheap but I like the added protection. I want to protect my huge investment.

    Just joined the group buy for the BAKflip. I got the MX4. I've been really sore from work so I still need to install the ABS guards and the Rigid fogs. Still looking at the King options so I'm holding off from ordering at the moment. Will post pic's when I'm done installing the new parts.

    My new Fire Extinguisher arrived today. I picked it up on Amazon. I got the black to match the interior. I think I'm going to mount it just in front of the passenger seat on that little slope.

    I just did an online order at Filthy Motorsports for front and rear King shocks:D Online orders get a priority call back so when I get the call I can go over everything that I actually need. Tax return money put to good use.

    Just finished my call with Ben at Filthy Motorsports to go over my Custom length King Shocks order. Everything is finalized so now I have a long 6-8 week build time:( The time will go by fast since I will still be doing other Mods. I guess that's how it go's with Custom stuff. I can't wait.

    There is no rubbing at all after modifications. This is how the truck sat on the showroom floor. The modifications to the bumper and the removal of the front fender plastic was done by the company that installed the Mods. Everything was done right and there is no rubbing at all. A big help with the rubbing issues is to have the correct offset for the rims that you use when you go with a big lift kit. They didn't need to do the frame mod with this lift and the rims that they installed on this truck.
