They were taken about 8pm tonight.....a lot of the color is the way the sun is hitting the lense, its a Nikon D80. I didn't use any external flashes though....its not that great of grass either, its really rough and weedy, so its probably not as 'good' as it looks in those images.

@simplyred: Thank you very much, college was a long long road and im finally getting the benefits from it!

Really.37 inch tires original? ROFLROFLROFLROFLROFLROFLROFL
May not look like it,but that's what they are.37x13.50.

One question I have.... Other than cost and ease of install why do a body lift instead of suspension?

WOW!! You don't have a clue do you? That's a Fabtech 6 in suspension lift.No body lift at all. Were it just a "body" lift you would see that epic gap between the bed and frame in the rear.........

Sorry, I don;t pay a whole lot of attention to GM trucks and I did not remember seeing as much of the frame below the body as it appears in your picture.

I like them.Those are 3 different sets of tires in all 3 pics.Mickey Thompson Baja's,Deck Cepek FC 2's and then the Destination....Out of the 3 I like the destinations best.They ride good,not to loud but they hook up real good on and off road.No complaints so far.I've got about 10,000 miles on these so far.

Yeah, either he's doing VERY well for a 24 year old recent college grad or the other cars (and house) belong to roommates or the parents.

Either way kudos (as long as there's not a ton of debt).

Just put a set of those on Mrs. Radarís Liberty.
Good tires, nice ride from them so far and Iíve heard nothing but great reviews about them.
Welder buddy drives a work truck, so his rig is a bit heavier than ours, but he swears by Cooper Discover SSTís. Just by looks, theyíre a fairly aggressive All Terrain.

This

I wanted to buy a full size truck but with all the travel to and from work here in Vegas that is a hard bill to swallow with the price of gas ta boot.

I had to settle for a Sport Trak XLT. Not really a truck but not a car either. I know my "Man Card" is in jeopardy but it was a 2004 with 12,000 miles on it and my dad sold it to me for $5K. I would think the deal trumps the lack of substance as a truck. :)

Come on man... being in debt up to your ass is the American way of life right? :hmmm:

Just the truck, ATV, and dog are mine! The parents own the house and the 2011 (yes, 2011) Camry. I have a pretty good job for straight out of College ( I work for Bayer Cropscience as a scientist) and it allowed me to afford the truck payment and still live pretty comfortably while living at home. I have the whole basement to myself so there is little reason to RUSH getting out my own. My old car was a 2001 Mustang GT with 162000 miles on it and was on its last leg, so it was time to get something new.

Yes, ford offers the 4.6L 4 speed and 6 speed, or the 5.4L 6 speed, I wanted the 5.4....no real reason for it, but I jsut wanted to say I had it.

Enjoy it dude. I got one just like it in silver, with the Lariat package. Not a better 1/2 ton truck on the road in my opinion.

I couldn't agree more, wish I could have afforded the Lariat, but it just wasnt within my budget. I drove a Toyota Tundra, Chevy Z71, Dodge Ram with Hemi, and the truck I bought......in my opinion, it was the best (no disrespect to owners of the others) and suited my needs. The backseat area is HUGE, and I love to take my australian shepherd almost everywhere (his name is cooper!), so that was a huge plus. The tailgate step is just....badass. And the interior, while not leather, is still extremely nice and overall I am VERY happy with my purchase.

Got any pictures of your truck? Hell, everyone add some pictures and we'll turn it into the MANLY TRUCK THREAD!

I have not had this problem but I haven't gone bogging either.

They have great snow/ice traction. I did not have any issues this past winter.

Dude, don't rush. The longer you can go without a rent/mortgage payment, the better.

Snow, ice, rain, on pavement is what Mrs. Radarís Jeep will see anyway so thatís good news. :thumb:
Iíve seen BFG A/Tís used off road and they will pack up with mud and require more wheel spin to clear out than a typical mud terrain in the same size but theyíll also get better traction on wet rocks, in sand and gravel than a typical mud terrain. Particularly sand where M/Tís will dig a hole to China and leave you setting on the frame.
