Need pics of leveled trucks.

I am getting ready to level my truck (2.5 inch) and put on 35x12.5's.
My truck is a F350 CC Short box and I am looking for some good side shot pictures of this combo, so I can get an idea of how it will look before I buy.
Please post just 2008 thru 2010...earlier ones look good, but to me they do look different.
Thanks guys

Looks good, how do you like the trail grapplers? Considering them when I move up to 35's.

I have them on my truck in 35-18 and hate them. I'll be very lucky to get 20k miles before there shot.

Do you drive it like you stole it or more like a grandma?

2 reasons I ask:
1) I've heard of conservative drivers with that specific size of toyo open countrys complaining about wear, and guys with 20s praising the heck outta them.

2) I've got super swamper m16s on mine. The way they are wearing I'm estimating 50k miles from em and I drive like a grandma. By most peoples thoughts, supser swampers don't last for long. I was going to go to the nittos after but you've got me second guessing...

Honest opinion I prob wouldn't buy them again, they've started sounding like mud grapplers and are real rough at low speeds.

I drive it like a truck. It see's highway, gravel, dirt roads etc...Has a gn hooked to it with 18k regularly. ZERO burnouts and rotated every oil change. There not coming apart, or have chunks missing out of the tread like my mtz's did which I only got 15k miles out of till the side wall came apart and took out my bed side. They simply are not wearing good at all.

I've heard the same thing with 18's vs 20's. A good friend of mine as a identical truck...cc, lb, loaded down the same way with 800lbs of tools and sh*t in tool box with "L" tank in bed. We bought our trucks the same time but his has factory 20''s. Both put MTZ's on week after we bought them. He's still running them with 30k miles and mine were junk after 15k. I dont know what the difference in tread compound is, but Im switching to 20's when these are shot.
