Default General Lee's Build

well my truck is not finished and probably never will be but I think I have made it my own and figure it couldn't hurt to make a build thread so here we go!

so this is what I started out with. completely stock except for some bald bfg a/ts and a chrome toolbox

Bought some new 285/70/17 Maxxis Buckshot Mudders

My next mod was a Tough Country Apache front bumper along with a warn 8,000lb winch and to get rid of that chrome toolbox

Next I added a pair of 130w KC slimlites, smoked halo projector headlights, smoked tail lights, and Go Rhino Dominator II steps (less than a year and they are already rusting, not happy with the quality at all)

I was likin' it right up until the black wheels. They make your tires look three sizes smaller than they are, but as long as you like them it's your truck.

Nice Work!

Thanks y'all! right now I am debating over whether I should get new wheels or if I should just get a leveling kit, wheel spacers and an exhaust.. and if I do get new wheels I am debating over 17x9 fuel hostage wheels or 17x8.5 fuel octane wheels

oh well thanks for the comments!
