like mentioned before, that thing is ugly as sin. If I were to get a truck, I'd look at an 03-04 F150. I got to drive a buddy of mine's and for a truck I didn't mind it at all.

either that truck sits extremely high, or those are 245's, which are way to small on a full size truck. I run 265/75s on my chevy 1500, the exact same size tires as my dad has on his f350(exact same tires actually), and i'd imagine 265's would look much better on there judging by how my dad's truck looks(assuming it has the same general ride height and such.

A truck that size needs as little bit bigger tires, too. Those things REALLY don't fit the look of that truck.

Note: Those are the BASE tires. Base = Cheap Cheap = Small Tire so, Base = Small Tire



#2 - the problem i see w/ those is the chrill is way too WIDE! it takes up too much of the front and there is too much chrome on the bumper, whats up w/ that big chunk near the wheel well.

Make the grill narrower and put an ARB bumper on it. and it would look better...

Put a 6" lift and 35" Mud terrains and it would be bad ass.
