    Default New Look: Almost Complete.

    Heres whats been going on with my truck.

    Sold the 22's. Tired of ruining tires and the rough ride.

    Bought 17" chevy wheels with new Falken ZIEX 275/60/17 tires.

    Raised truck up 1" on all 4 corners. They couldnt align it as it was.

    Sold black LED taillights. They just didnt look good IMO with 17" stock wheels.

    Sold small street scene mirrors. Also didnt look right IMO.

    Had my factory mirrors painted pewter to match. I love em!

    Bought 03+ chevy taillights and 3rd brake light. Love those too!

    With the money from the 22's ($1300) I am buying a trutrac with 4.56's for the rear, and 4.56's for the front.

    Whats left to do for new look? Buy an SS tailgate cap and have it painted pewter to match.

    Truck before:

    Truck Now. I absolutely LOVE it.

    Looks good. The cap should complete the look. I like the black tails with your color truck, but that's just my opinion. How do you like the 17's compared to the 22's? I've heard the 22's are a rough ride.

    Thanks. The 22's are not worth the look. I love the 17's. With those 265/35/22 tires you would bend a rim and destroy a tire just by hitting a pothole.

    Looks good. Still too low to the ground for my tastes though.
