    NICE truck Nick!! Welcome from South La!!

    If I may offer my opinion on what to do next.....
    Suspension 3/1 lift, 33-35 AT or MT tires, wheel spacers (I like those rims)
    Spider headlights and tail lights
    ICI magnum step bars or rock sliders
    BOTTLE OPENER IN BED!

    You're welcome. :bananadance:

    Oh and get rid of the chrome covers on the mirror and handles

    Thanks man! Very exited to be driving this beast. So with a reg. level 3/1 kit you're saying i can fit 35's.
    Any opinion on the roughcountry kits?
    Also i need winter spec tires up here.
    Cheers!

    Plenty of people are running 35's on a 3/1! You'd need to do a CMC (cab mount chop) though.
    I have a 3/1 rough country lift on my 2nd gen, but spacer lifts aren't the best way to do it. I'm converting to Toytec BOSS suspension lift (same height) within the year. Should've done it the right way from the get go but I'm still a rookie!! :anonymous:
    I have Toyo AT2's (love them) but not sure if they're winter spec but I do know Duratracs kick ass in snow/mud and aren't overly loud on pavement. Might be a better option for you

    If you get wheels with 30 or 35 mm offset, you probably won't have to cut the body mount to install 35x12.5. I've seen some with Bilsteins 5100 with 35s. He claimed that he didn't have to cut anything. (But you have to see for your truck since every truck is slightly different). With lower offset, you certainly have to cut it.
