Hi Phreak, I believe they are Bushwackers, I saw a truck on the lot and told the after market guy those were the one's I wanted, got them through my dealer and the dealer did the painting and install. I got a better deal than if I ordered them, had a body shop paint and me install. It was the same way with the body side moldings.

Hi BLKSVT, actually I have the Readylift SST lift kit, it really is leveling but it actually raises the suspension by 2.75" rear and 1.75" front designed for 2wd's and kept everything stock. I liked it better than the level and prices are equal, the ride is just like factory. The tires are Terra Grapplers 305/55/20 mounted on BMF S.O.T.A. 20" x 9".

Thanks,
Danny

Looks pretty sweet, I like the fender flares.

Yes these are the Bestop. I really like them but it's just a personal preference since I do not like the more standard steps, unless on a higher truck. Mine only has the Readylift SST, 2+ inches, but my wife needs a step so I went this direction. Even though they are rated for like 460 lbs. or so they do seem a little giving when you step on them but not a deal breaker for me. They now have lights when opened, really a nice touch at night. I don't have any close-up pics now but will add them on my pbase page soon. Yep, I was undecided on the flares until I saw a pic of your truck on another thread...your truck was inspirational to my decision

Thanks,
Danny

Now that you've been on the upgrade for a while, how do you like it? Any wobble? Any bounce? How's the ride???

Actually I am very pleased that the ride is same as factory and was hoping it would be since the small lift did not require any shock or spring changes. I really thought I may have a little rougher ride with the nitto's, but that too is very smooth. I do notice a little rougher bump when going over a very rough surface, but that is minimal. The biggest change so far is the lesser gas milage I'm getting, probably because of the wider rubber and the wheels are heavier than the factory, or maybe my foot is a little heavier.
