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
