    Default No more stock rims

    I finally got rid of my stock Z71 wheels a month or so ago. I got tired of replacing hubs because of my wheel spacers and the icing on the cake was a broken wheel stud that pulled 3 more wheel studs out with with the broken stud, leaving 2 holding on the tire going down the interstate at 70 mph. Here is a picture, hopefully I will have more pictures once I can get my truck cleaned up from all the rain. Please let me know what you guys think!

    I liked the other wheels too, but this look great! I sure like the silver fenders and stripe under the doors. Its unique and looks great.

    Thanks, I love the color combination myself. I was scared the new wheels wouldn't go well with the silver/grey on the bottom but to me it looks good!

    Thanks! Heres a picture of my rear bumper. I decided to take one this morning even though my truck is filthy. Just know that my exhaust tips usually are nice and shiny not dull!

    I've got 2 D ring tow hooks I can take on an off of that bumper and it is a hoss when I have to pull something. The bumper and the trailer hitch are welded together plus the normal mounting bolts along with the bumper welded to the frame!
