    Default Truck Leveled + New Wheels & Tires

    I'll get some better pics when I get her cleaned up - but what a difference! Went with the RC leveling kit, Tahoe wheels and BFG Rugged Terrain 275/60/20. Since then I've also added a Kobalt black low profile toolbox.

    That looks great, man. Did you also get those front windows tinted a bit? Looks good.

    I did - the tint is same all the way around now, except for the front. Thanks! I like the look of your blaked-out bowtie. Debating that mod myself.

    I think you should buy a set of the Black bowties for your truck. www.autoanything.com has them and they are AMI grille emblems at a good price and shipping is free that's where i bought mine for my truck. The promo code CAEA3 will get you 10% off of them i don't need them anymore and they sent me a email for that so if you decide to get them use the code since they don't have it on there site for everyone to use just trying to help you out ha.

    Truck looks good. Have you thought about removing the lower air dam?

    Looks amazing, I also think it would look good to remove the air dam.

    Hadn't even thought of removing the air dam - I looked at lunch and I didn't even realize that was a seperate piece. Yeah, I might see how it looks with that off. Looks like it's just a few bolts... Am I missing anything?

    Nope, those air dams are extremely easy to remove and install. Should be 10 MM on those if I remember right.

    Truck looks fantastic!
