The New Beast

Well as some may remember at the begining of June my old man had his truck stolen out of his work parking lot. It was an ailing 06 6.0l Crew Cab 2wd and it was having EGR and Tranny issues.
So this gave my dad the oppurtunity to start fresh on another truck, and this one had to be a 7.3l. We looked hard and long for a low mileage 7.3 that woul fit him best, but in the end we ended up with a truck on 37 inch tires.
He hasnt owned a 4wd since his 76 Blazer he drove around as a college kid. He lifted that blazer 4" and stuffed 36" dick cepecks in the wheel wells. He sold that truck after marriage and it was later found rolled over and the owner was killed.
Needless to say he was weary of 4wds but he ended up breaking a 20+ year vow to himself not to have a 4wd and he bought this thing....



It has a 6" Pro-Comp lift on brand new Mickey Thompson ATZs on 18" moto metals. Expect this set up to be posted up for sale, he wants to downsize to a leveling kit and some 33s.

Its sweet and all, but its just not as practical for his work driving all around Houston.

But that Suspension set-up you see there is up for sale, I think it will look sweet on any truck.

Yeah the truck is gorgeous but, its just too much for him. The lift and rims and tires are for sale. He's going down to a leveling kit, 5-hole stock rims and some 33s.

I guess i should ask how much your asking for the wheels b4 i say no compleatly and if I do get them my sister lives in Houston and would pick them up (no shipping that way) and when I get to campbell Ky I can make a trip down there and pick them up from my sisters ah but I think the wife would kill me but they are chrome and she loves chrome (the reason she wont let me black out the grill and bumpers and black rims with some Harley Headlights) Give me a price on the wheels and Ill talk to the Wifey and see what she says!!! Thanks
