    Default New Member!! Ready to do some upgrades to my Truck!

    Hello All!!

    You can call me Jack. I am a US Marine. I am currently deployed and when I get home in a month I will be using my stash of cash to finally do some upgrades to my truck, with all of your advice.

    First thing, I cant seem to upload a profile pic or avatar pic. But I did create a photo album so feel free to check it out along the way. Attached is a picture of my truck in its current state.

    I big question I have for you is, 17" Rims or 20" rims?

    Welcome to the club Jack, it's great to have you aboard. That a great looking truck you got there and thank you for your service to our country. As far as the wheels and tires I think the 20s would look great but it's all about what you like. Good luck and be safe.

    1st of all, Thank You! I would go with 17's, tire's are cheaper. I have 18's and installed a 2" level kit, same as you. I mounted 33-12.50-18 and they "Look Great". If you use 20" rims you'll have a problem of mounting a tire of that size.
