Which you just totally threw out the window with a 6inch lift and 33's on a 2wd V6.

but...to each his own. Looks good anyway, even if it isnt too practical.

Practicality isn't always on the top of everyone's list. I am glad to see someone doing something different with a 2wd truck, aside from lowering it Keep doin what you do brother.

Looks very nice!
Good choice on the wheels, the black on black on black on black ad nauseum is getting played out.

Just swap that 3.7 for a nice 7.0 426 Hemi, then you won't have to worry about power.

Truck look great, when i lifted my 2WD in 2009 with the 6 inch CST lift , I got a lot of compliments, it serves my purpose well, i have a lot of acreage, that can get a vehicle high sided , some mud grips and i am good to go, plus my mileage is great, on the highway,

................and its much more practical to shoot for the smaller engine in a 4WD instead of stepping up to the HEMI right???
glad we are not all subjected to one idea...

Looks great. Over hardpack soil, it's probably quicker than a 4x4.
