Thanks, I dont really have anything planned for the future. I was debating getting a bull bar, but I'm not really a fan with them on the king ranch.

Eh those 34.63s are gonna rip through your transmission and engine a lot faster than.

Paint the center cap star to match the main paint color. Possibly lug covers as well. Will look x1000 better.

Think of all that added stress you are putting on the engine and transmission from all the extra rottating mass. They both have to work twice as hard now because you are running almost 35" tires compared to your stock 32" tires that came with the vehicle. A 3.55 or 3.73 aren't meant to rotate that amount of tire, so the engine and transmission have to make up for the higher gearing. Once you lower the gearing to a 4.10 or 4.56 you won't have this problem any longer. The first couple of things you should have noticed by now is your truck feels much slower, and you that your MPGs have suffered greatly.

Truck looks good, I really like the running boards if you don't mind me asking what did you pay for them?
