This is what she looked like after the last time I wheeler her and the last time the old 33s were on her...

This is how she sat when I used her to pull my trailer and the wife was using her as a daily driver...

She is currently back on a set of 33s and I am now daily driving her again.

Even after all the abuse she took while offroading and towing, she still runs like a top with over 120,000 miles and the only parts ever replaced were a t-stat, O2 sensors and a trans (under waranty).

That is a nice truck. Sounds reliable as well. Looks good!
