Next up, BullyDog tuner, black housed headlights,smoked tails, and finish debadging my passenger side. Lol.


That is a crazy sweet looking truck. What tires/sizes are you running?

Thanks for the info on the rims, I saw them listed for our trucks, and was thinking of getting a set, but I wanted to stay 20", and I think you said the smallest they make for our trucks was 22" correct? So you are running a 32" tires then. They look pretty good, and 1"shorter than stock. Your speedo will be off by 1.2mph at 60 according to the wheel diameter calculator.
Im pretty sure they make them in 20s also, check bossmotorsport webite . Or you could look at the foose legend/nitousII's, they are the same style and come in 20s but are a little more pricey. And i yeah, im goin to re align it some time sinceThe bracket just levels it and doesnt fix the alignment. I want to get welwig sway bars down the road and as far as brakes go in just goin to paint the calipers red. Mods are slowing down since im running out of money for them. Haha. Mod bug is killing me! Next mods is the BD tuner for sure.

Recommend going to Hemifever, and get a real tune, included free if you buy the tuner from him! Just so you know the Hellwigs are nice for the handling, but they are not super stiff as I was hoping for, just the best ones I can find for our truck. Stock brakes are fine, just depends on HOW much you modify, HeHe!

That will be a couple hundred more and i dont have the cash for that. I think a BD canned tune will make me happy. Lower the TM, shift better/firmer, and more thottle response and ill be good.

I live in fort gibson near muskogee and for ft gibson tire and wheel installed the kit.

I did change the shocks that came with the kit, the BT street performance shocks and its a little stiffer, you will notice a differance, but its not bad at all. Definately corners better though!! Its my DD and i can live with it!

Thanks!!
