Default Re: My introduction and truck

Thanks guys! Sorry i havent answered, i couldnt find the thread! Thanks to whoever for moving it for me though, i just didnt know where to put it since it was pictures of my truck as well.

The tail lights dont match because i bought the newer years so i could use that extra orange hole for a strobe setup. I had them in the two lights on the side of the third brake light and in the two empty holes of the new fixtures. I took the strobe box out now though, so they are non functioning.

My plans, are to find some kind of wheels that either are nice brand name already, or steelies that can be painted black and look good with caps on, that have a negative offset so my tires poke out. Thats the main thing I want.

As soon as i have money for an allignment Im going to crank the bars. Then hopefully this summer i can save up for some BFG AT 32 inchers. I'd love to lift the truck even higher, but it will look lifted because of the stock edge look anyhow, especially with the front lifted up. A real lift just isnt really in my budget I dont think. Plus the truck is at 90,xxx so I dont want to drop a lot of money on my first truck.

I also have a pioneer avic head unit in there with a scanner mounted right below it where the air bag switch used to be. Amp wires are ran and ready to go, but my amp isnt in there yet. Im waiting till i can afford all 4 door speakers and power them with the amp. I had it powering a sub but it didnt do too much so i took it out cause i wanted to wheel anyway.

I also want to mount a roof rack with offroad lights on it, or put two behind the grill. And i might static cling the tail lights if i can get it to look good.

you can buy black steelies at like 35$ a piece, no need to paint em.
dont get 32's, just get 33's because youll want bigger tires eventually.
