    Shouldn't take me long and on a nice day I could probably have everything back to stock in a few hours. But it's not easy this time of the year, especially when it's this cold out and don't have a garage that it fits in

    I hear ya. It's cold here in Missouri so it's probably 10 times colder up where you're at. Makes doing even the simplest of tasks miserable. LOL

    If your wanting 1500hd just keep browsing. When I got mine there were a few of them listed and all cheaper than any 5.3 trucks. Gas mileage is less desireable with the 6.0L and seems to effect the sales. Maybe not right now though with gas at 75 cents a liter.

    Seems like heavy duty trucks are always more beat up than a regular 1500. I'm a little bit less fussy about it now, I would definitely not let it keep me from buying a nice 5.3L truck. I'd go nuts for a vortec max though.

    Also been considering getting an nnbs, but after doing some research it seems like the newer truck are of lesser quality than gmt800. It just makes me cringe throwing down 15 grand for a truck that's at least 10 years old, cause if I get another gmt800 it's going to be loaded lol

    True i guess i wasn't as picky on appearance. Mine has some scratches but no dents. It was owned by on old carpenter. I was more interested in the low miles

    Threw the 3 inch spacers on for shits and giggles but turned out actually nice. I like the stance. Some minor trimming

    Haha my truck is already covered in dirt when I put them on so can't really tell. Roads have mostly dried up now too so it's alright. Thought about washing it today, came to realization its a huge waste of money this time of year

    Great thing about the silver birch color. Doesn't look as dirty until you wash it and realize how dirty it is. :)

    Haha silver is to generic and plain for me. I like dark colors. That being said, I am actually kind of bored of this color

    What do you mean? It's no more expensive than the tires for my 17s were.

    Well I could spend 3000 on tires if I really wanted to lol. It all depends on the tires you want. I know these tires are almost $400 each when you go up to a 275 or a 285. Compared to $250 for 265s.

    I couldn't imagine paying 400 a tire lol. I didn't like paying 200 a tire for the tires I have now! The $250 is still reasonable though.

    I probably wouldn't pay 400 for a 285 either. By that point you might as well lift your truck and go at least a bit bigger than 285 cause 20 more mm of width is not much. $250 is a very reasonable price for these tires. I love them.

    The price of tires have gone up over the last couple of years. 3 years ago I purchased a set of Hankook dynapro atm 10 ply for right at 1k mounted and balanced. I priced a new set the other day at the same place and same size and now it's $1300
