Yea not keen on going for a full towbar set up!!
it's ideal for you and caravans but i would never really use it mate!!
The Tyres I'm going for are the kumho KL71's they get awesome reviews and looks
wise beat everything hands down!!
It came with an aftermarket sterio mate so I can't really help you there bud!

The original is a digital radio hence the windscreen mounted second ariel but its not a very good unit. I'll check out them kumho KL71's, let me know if you find anywhere for a good deal. I still got the 265/70R15 bridgstones but they'll need replacing soon.

welcome stevie, it would appear the uk is taking over frf.lol

anywho, i say body lift the piss out of that truck and put some 33's on it. the spacers are cheap and from the looks of it you wont have too much trouble raising the bumpers.

Drew, you uk too??

lol@stu, we should start our own Uk Gang lol It seems all the cool parts are in the US but then I'm finding that the US trucks are different??! WTF is that all about!?

Also Drew I thought a body lift was straight forward, now I'm Reading stuff about bloody steering rack extensions, hand brake adjustments, bumpers being left behind in the lifting process, and having to have special brackets made up?

just wish I could fine someone in the south uk I could drop it off to so they can raise the damd truck lol
Or at least find a uk supplier.........

Stu is yours raised mate?

Sadly i'm not uk.lol i'm a good ole redneck from South Carolina.

The body lift is pretty straight forward.. You will need to extend the steering shaft, drop the radiator, i didnt run into any handbrake issues, and normally the bumper leveling brackets come with the kit. or at least they do over here. Seeing that your truck is a bit different than ours are over here it may be different. But i'm sure you have fabrication shops over there that can make something work if your kit doesnt come with bumper brackets.

Oh and by the way, STL's truck is bodylifted 3 inches as well.
