They look very good on the truck. Now you need some mud flaps to keep them from flinging stuff at the paint.

That is one tough looking truck. I love it.

Any other plans?

Well I have been researching painting the headlights alot lately and think I will be able to do it. I am in a GB for HIDs so when it takes off and I get them I will probably make it all one project. I just wish there was some 09 rams in the junk yards so I could get at least one headlight to just try it. The glue part is what im nervous about. Other future mods are the new scanning led tailgate bar, black taillight when they come out, and a train horn system.

Well a few reasons, they would cost more, weigh more, and get me less MPG. If I planned to do a 4" lift I would have went with 35s. But I don't really like the leveled with 35's looks, to me seems like you are trying to squish a tire too big under the fender. I like some good fender gap. Couple years from now when these wear out, I may look into a 4" lift and 35s..

Did they help you with the offset and backspacing where you got the rims or did you have to make a educated guess?
