What? Why? Ah well, they're just trucks after all, but this is a damn nice one.

Time to move on. Going to sell my XJ as well and find a truck to daily.

Long time no update, truck has been stored all winter. Got it out a couple weeks ago to do a little towing. Its back in storage now, but the new wheel and tire setup has been chosen.

Tires showed up last week.




These are the wheels. PYS reps in PVD Chrome.


Also ordered a set of new OEM Chevrolet caps to go with them.

Nittos are the perfect choice. They look nice and meaty but not overly aggressive. The size will fill out the wheel wells nicely too. Perfect.
Post up some pics when they're mounted and installed. I can't wait to see it!

I think so too brother. I think with the square shoulders and smooth sidewalls should be killer.

Here is why I chose the setup. OEM plus look, I really liked this look and it is far more practical. Same wheel but in black chrome, but an all terrain tire in the same size.

Broke open one box to try on the OEM caps. Fit like a glove.

Carved out some time late last night and put these together.

Steamrollers














I am really excited to get them installed, but one of them had some finish issues due to poor packaging s I am hoping to get that resolved ASAP.

So OE Wheels stepped up huge. Told me yup thats a problem, yup we will send you a replacement oh and keep that one. Soooo let the games begin.

(yes it is really that shiny)




Token shot outside the shop.


Quite possibly perfect now.




Perfect with the spacer out back.


Drives so great, zero balance issues. Can not wait to put some miles on it this week.
