    Hey guys just picked up my 99 Sub 4x4 a few months back. Going tomorrow to tint the front 2 windows. I ordered a set of 265/75's Dunlop rover m/t's for it that will be in next week. Running K&N filter with the air box lid off and dual exhaust. Nothing to major for the family hauler. looking to install cb , what kind of antenna brackets are you guys using or were have you installed them. I’m mostly using it for the PA system so I was thinking of using the antenna that mount to the glass like a cell antenna. Any other suggestions

    Sounds like you are off to a good start. I have done anything with a CB in years, but if I did, I'm like you I'd want it more for the PA. I didn't know they had glass mount antennas for CB radios. That would be easy to install and stealthy too.

    That is a nice looking truck... I would actually put the airbox cover back on since it gets colder air than with the box lid off, since it is pulling most of the air from the hot engine.. I would look into an updated set of rims from a newer Z71 rig.. They look awsome on the older trucks, and the nice thing is they are 16s so you can still use the new tires..

    agreed on the wheels ive been looking on craigslist for some takeoffs but havent found what i want. I like the polished alum 5 star oems I had on my 2000 silverado.

    yeah the aluminum ones. junk yard not a bad idea. I know they are the same bolt pattern but are they the same back spacing?

    Very close.. As you can see if you looked in my albums i have a set of 07 Steel Rims.. And my buddy has a set of the aluminum ones that you are looking for on his 1996 and they fit basically the same in the fender...
