Default Updated pics: Painted wheels, 2/3 drop ect.

Well After just a a couple of weeks i am very happy with the way the truck is looking. Funds are tight right now so my 4/5 and rims will have to wait. But anyway.

Stock:






After 2/3 drop, painted wheels, 04-05 4x4 grill. Its dirty in the pics.

That thing looks good. You should have held out until you had the funds to do the 4/5 and rims though. I'm not gonna hate too much though cause it does look pretty sick how it sits.

I like the way the rims look, I just think that instead of buying one setup and then buying another setup you should just hold out for what you really want.

Um. If I want to 4/5 all i need is upper and lower control arms, my setup is ready for 4/5. Actually like it 2/3 a lot, might keep it like this.
