Putting bigger tires on it? Looks good! The foxes cleans up the ride on just about anything.

Needs a delete and tune now. Get it running as good as it looks.

I will be getting 37s once my 35s are done.. only 7k miles on my 35s..

Yes as soon as my warranty is up the first thing that will be happening is deleting and tuning everything.. I still have a couple of years on the warranty... but who knows I will probably do it all before then..

LED's are on my radar!


Thanks for the comments, I really love how it drives.. one thing I would recommend with these IFS trucks is don't level them... cause it rides likes crap

Yes I have seen his truck.... his truck is what I would have if I had unlimited money, I'll have to check out his exhaust work.

Truck looks great with the lift man. And I feel your 35's look perfectly proportional; I had to hack off a decent chunk of my bumper to squeeze 37's on with a -0 offset wheel.

As for exhaust tip, the one I got is an MBRP. I just found whatever black tip fit the length I wanted and that I could get as soon as possible at the time (assuming I'd be tearing it all out once tunes became available.

Last thing, I tried LED's, they were okay. Not bad, but didn't compare close to how the HID's perform in our housings.

I love your truck man.... For your exhaust tip did you get the 18 or 12 inch one ? And is it just a clamp on or weld on? And what size pipe did you get 4 inch?
I will probably check out the LED headlights first like you did and see if those work for the mean time since they are a lot cheaper and plug in play.

Thanks man. I did the 5" inlet/ 6" outlet, 18" long model. Then I chopped off about 10-12" of the stock tip, attach to that cooling collar and clamped it right there.
Here is the link for the one I got ;

And I totally get not wanting to deal with installing an HID kit. If you decide to splurge, the retrofit source has the new Morimoto 2Stroke LED'S
