    Alright guys. Here's a massive update. lol. Let's go!

    First, let's start off with some nice pictures.

    Alright. Now that is out of the way, they are the very last photos of the truck at stock height, let's get down to the good stuff!! A few weeks ago my dad and I started talking about adding some things to my truck and he would help me out a bit, started with some minor things, and then we got serious and agreed on doing a 6" Rough Country lift, something I have been wanting to do for a long, long time as you all know. I called BKS Built Trucks two weeks ago and made plans for everything and got an install date, which was May 4th-5th. I took the truck up there and let them have at it.

    Here is a "before" shot at the shop.

    Typically they don't do 90s trucks because there usually is so many problems, and people complaining about additional labor costs and parts that need replaced. I knew that things would need replaced, so I just let them have at it. Basically with the addition of the Lift Kit, all of my ball joints, rod ends, bushings, and everything up front are brand new. It took them 16 hours to get the lift done because of the extra work that was needed, but here is the end result! Posted on their Facebook page right after I got the call to go pick her up.

    I went to pick her up and couldn't believe the difference the lift made! She looks bigger, and way better than before. I took it to get an alignment afterwards (BKS Paid) and got her all good to go.

    Here are some more shots of the newly lifted truck, already put a little over 100 miles on it.

    My truck and my brother's Jeep a few days after installing a RC 3.25" Lift

    I also had my Monster Hook re-powder coated Tuxedo black with a wrinkle texture, and BOLT replaced my other lock that broke.

    After all this, Friday I ordered a new set of wheels, and tomorrow I am ordering some new 35" tires to go with them. The wheels are 20x12 with a -51 Offset, and I went with Atturo Trail Blade MTs for the tires.

    And I like to be different, so I picked a wheel that I don't ever see, from a manufacturer that doesn't get enough publicity. Everyone runs Fuels, XD, Hostile, and now Anthem (the brand I originally wanted.) So here's a sneak peek of the wheels I ordered, remaining nameless until I receive them.

    And as always, there's a video to go along.

    I told everyone that 2015 was going to be a BIG year for this truck, and it has definitely come through!

    VISION wheels. I just got a set for my 2500hd but I kept a stockish offset in a different style and 17x8.5 they arrived the other day and I'm impressed with the quality.

    Little update: The Vision wheels didn't work out, the place I ordered from called me and told me the Rage wheels I ordered were the last set from Vision, but they were not sell-able and were pretty much trash. Ended up, the guy I was on the phone with was the Co-Founder of Anthem Wheel, so we worked out a deal on 20x12 A731 Commander series wheels and 35" Atturo Trail Blade MT tires! Estimated delivery is Thursday with the LTL company.

    The cool thing about these wheels is the fact that absolutely no one around here has them, and I am the very first to get a set in my specific bolt pattern! Definitely looking forward to this as this was the original wheel I wanted a year ago!

    That's cool and sounds like it worked out for the better for you. Turns out one of my wheels was the wrong bolt pattern 8x170. So I'm waiting on the replacement to come in.

    Yeah, it did work out in my favor, I guess it was destined for me to get those wheels. haha. Sucks they sent you the wrong bolt pattern, I hate waiting on things, lol.

    They overnighted the replacement and I got it in 16 hrs from the time I called them. So I'm happy. I got my truck back today and had to pull the front bumper out some cause it was tweaked and rubbing hardcore on the drivers side. Your truck is badass as it is but those wheels outta make it pop!
