Just wanted to show off what I have done to the truck exterior wise in the two months that I have owned it. The reason I want to show this is because it was relatively cheap, and its exactly the look I was going for. Chances are the way it looks now, is the way it'll stay for a while (stance wise) besides maybe some cab lights or a few smaller changes.
So to start off the first pic is when I just got it and just got the windows tinted. Dealer sold it to me with 17's and the truck looked like it skipped leg day. On top of that there was no running boards.
So first thing I did was go to craigslist and find the wheels I was looking for. I really liked the older 20's found on the King Ranch and Lariats. I found a deal asking $550 for all 4 wheels. It was 4 hours away one way, but I couldnt pass it up so I went and bought it. That same day in the evening I sold the original 17's with the BFG tires on them for $800 for the set. The tires were pretty much shot on the 20's though, so I went ahead and got some Terra Grapplers. Whoever tells you that 35's wont fit on stock suspension is full of it. I got 325X60X20's which converts to 35X13X20. I didnt have any rubbing. However I wasnt quite pleased with the stance just yet so I ordered 2" HUB CENTRIC wheel spacers all around. I also purchased great looking (and confortable) running boards.
As I said the 35's didnt rub. However AFTER I put the 2" spacers, I definitely got some rubbing, but it was an easy fix. Its hard to tell on the picture below, but on the drivers side I had to grind about 1/2'' off of one of the front bumper brackets. You cant even see it unless I point it out. On the back side of the wheel where the mud-flap looking guard thing is, the tire kept rubbing the last bolt, which all I had to do was tap it a few times with a hammer and bend it back just a tad. Now no rubbing, stock suspension, and I love the way it sits.
All in all, considering how much I sold the original wheels and tires for, the whole set up cost me roughly an addition $1,500-$2,000. I am fairly happy with the results, and have received a LOT more compliments and turned heads on the truck
