    Sounds awesome I love seeing these trucks get rebuilt. The 33's should fill the wheel wells nicely. Cant wait to see em mounted

    I love the stance but without being lifted it still allows me to use it like a truck

    For sure, I loved my lifted truck but man was it a chore to hike anything up there and trying to keep a trailer level required such a long drop hitch.

    I use mine a lot for hauling fire wool and it’s a whole lot less of a toss into it than it would be if it was lifted
