wow!! awesome job the truck looks very clean and well built, what size rims and tires are you running. i normally dont like the nitto mud grapplers and larger rims(see them on to many dodges and chevys) but they look incredible on your ex.

love them. They aint even got a weight on em and no shake. ive owned 3 sets so i swear by them. they pull super hard in mud long as you keep em cleaned out. i got them mainly because i bought them new for 800 bucks.

Ah I see we follow the same logic. I got mine for 1000 flat.


I have come to like them but I feel they weigh a ton.

There's no need to feel they weigh a ton lol. They do! Mine are load rrange e due to that's all they make for a 18. They have to be close to 200 for a tire and wheel combo. Im looking for a set of 35x14.50x15 tsl boggers on a 15x14 wheel to run also.

On your shackles what is the length bolt hole to bolt hole? I am still trying to figure out why yours flexes so damn much:D:D And you did use Waggy leafs right? 5 pack springs..
