    DAMN Sammy, that is one nice truck. i woulda had a hard time letting it go. i think i vaquely remember a truck in the barn.
    if i was gonna build one i think i'd have to do wheels like that (or similar). maybe even some ETIII Fuelers. i love those wheels.

    j-dogg, are those 15's or 16's? I like the look. I think my next set of wheels & tires will be with GMC caps and rings with blackwalls.

    NealinCA that truck is beautiful!! i love the GMC grills...

    Johnny, i totaly love the chop on your truck. how much is it front and back. it's more in front than in back, is'nt it? was the wedge chop much more work than brining it straight down? is yours on an S10 chassis?? did you have to shorten the bed??

    7.00 x 16 and 7.00 x 15, the front tires are junk though. I'll probably go smaller.
