Help me decide

Had an offer to do a swap of suspension parts with this guy, along with wheels. My truck would sit exactly like his is sitting and i would have his wheels. His wheels are a bit wider than mine are now but more shiny




How my truck sits now

so your saying i should leave my truck as is?

Those arent the tires i would be getting, those pictures are really old. The tires i get are Avon's with 6000 miles on them.

The lift is a Tuff Country 4" with new shocks, extended brake lines, and new trac bar stuff

swap him, no question about it. Those wheels look a ton better, Im a big fan of the larger holes.

4" lift is also the way to go. I say its a no brainer

I dont know about a no brainer.... I like the aluminum look of a wheel rather than chrome which he has.

I would like to try a lift though. And his lift is pretty solid with all new shocks!

It would be a no brainer for me. 4" lift is the perfect height in my opinion and I like the look of a chrome wheel but its your truck man

yeah leveled or 4" is the only way i'd run my truck. We will see what he wants in the way of cash. I'd be willing to try it out
