Just bought a 05 with a perfect service record and low miles. Im thinking i need to add front and rear HD bumpers to it as well as some 35" tires. What would all you guys do in this situation. I am a full time firefighter in the canadian rockies and enjoy hunting and fishing. Feel free to school me on what to do to the new ride. Once i get it i will post some picks up. And yes it looks firetruck red. cheers boys...and maybe a few girls.

Chris

i havent driven it yet. front end had a complete rebuild 4000 miles ago. all ball joints, complete tire rod upgrade, all new axel u-joints, drive shaft u-joints, steering shock and pitman arm. this was all done by the original owner that kept a meticulous maintenance record. im hoping it runs half as good as it sounds.

If your going with 35"s then you dont need a lift. You should look at wheels with a little less backspace though so you dont rub the upper control arms.

I think you should Drive it first and get to know the truck first and feel it out and then decide what you are doing with her... IMO
