Got some 38" Mickey Thompson MTZ's for my 02' 2500HD. I have 11 inches of lift on this truck.:naughty1:

hahahaha!!!!! Yeah, I've got some big work going on in my back yard. My buddy already hauled away about 400 yards of dirt out of there and has about another 400 yards to go. I'm cutting away at that hill back there and making the back yard bigger. Some day I'll make a thread with pictures showing the progress of the yard. It's really impressive what my friend is doing for me free of charge!

My tires that were on the truck were almost bald. The new ones would have bought me 7 trackdays. I got them for $1350 through Gabe's account at his family run repair shop. They would have been about $1600 + mount, balance, and front end alignment If I bought them at the tire store in town. Gabe did the mount, balance and front end alignment for free so I saved about $450:coolgleamA:

Pays to have good friends like that:cheers:

Your truck looks great. Doesn't look like it fits in the garage anymore though.

:urfunny:

That garage is coming down next year and a 3 place is going up with 10 foot doors. I want the center bay to have a 14 foot ceiling so that I can install a lift.:coolgleamA:

The garage will also have a mud room that will go into the kitchen. I have some big plans for the house next year.

I stole this house for $675,000 and it will be worth about 1.1 million once I'm done with a few more things.

those step bars low enough? looking good

I actually hate the step bars. I've never owned step bars before. Not even on my old truck with 18 inches of lift and 44's. I only have these because my wife is 4'10 and she can't get in the truck anymore without them. lol

I would really like to have some power extending steps that tuck up under the truck when the doors are closed and drop down when they open but they are over a grand.

Now I'm gonna order up some 5.13 gears to get my power band back.

I get around 6-7mpg in town and about 10-11mpg on the highway.

Yeah, you should see young punks faces when they cut me off in their Civics on the highway and my big ass truck rides up within a foot of their back bumper and stays there no matter how fast they think their 8" exhaust tip makes their shit box go. I guess they didn't get the memo that truck guys are into performance enhancements too. lol

Can't wait to get my new gears and slap them in.

I had a quiet day at the shop today so I washed the truck, hit the whole thing with the clay bar, washed it again and waxed and Armor All'd it up nicey nice. I'll post some after pics tonight. I might go take some pics of it infront of my fire house.

They are Mickey Thompson MTZ's. They would have been $1600 just for the tires but Gabe hooked me up and got the tires for $1350, mounted and balanced them for nothing and did a free computer alignment on the front end.:coolgleamA:
