Thumbs up Pics:New wheels, tires, headlights, leveling kit

Well I went ahead and dropped some dough on the ole' truckster.

I got
20x9 +18mm offset Matte Black XD Series Addicts
295/65R20 Nitto Trail Grapplers
Harley Davidson repro's(Eagle Eyes) Headlights
1.5" Aluminum spring pedestal spacer
Front windows painted the same as rears

I really like the look of my truck and how the silver bottom adds some contrast so its not completely "murdered out". I think its tastefully done.

Performance is the same, but MPGs kinda tanked(expected for 35.5" tires). Tires dont rub at all lock to lock, locked going up incline or down a decline. only thing I have noticed is my tires seem to "trail around" alot on the highway.







Last two were "messed" with on Picassa, so the truck looks a little more "shiney"


Thanks for looking

Looks good. Where did you get the headlights and what did you pay for them?
