Trucks are a huge advantage.
Little trucks are the best for those that dont use them daily.
Waiting for the $ Sale sign.....

I gotta say, I don't hate it! Smile





Once I fix the frame, and lower it 4" in the back and 3" in the front, it's gonna look pretty kickass, I think!!!! Very Happy

Got my pre-cut tints friday, and hope to install them one night this week... Very Happy

That truck is pretty close to perfect!
I was just on the S-10 sites researching springs & must say that yours has most of those guys beat for "tastefulness".
Which version/s are the wheels, all fronts, all rears, dimples, etc?
They REALLY complete the truck!

Thanks man, I diggit too. Smile

But I'm not done yet, so we'll see how tasteful it is when I finish... lol

But the rims are 16x8" GTA wheels. All fronts. That's a 4.75" BS, IIRC. They have 245/50's on them.

I need to find one more, as one of them has a pretty good chunk missing out of the lip...

Please don't toss the wheel when you find a clean replacement.
The alloy rim is weldable and therefore repairable.
They aren't making those originals anymore, as you surely know!

.................

I've gotta agree, lowered will look great, but why lower in the back?
I cant really see a noticible rake in it now so....?

Those wheels look like they were made for that truck
