    What are those tires? Also what is it you did to the front end? Looks like you lowered it? Or atleast thats what it looks like to me, (I'm not very smart when it comes to front ends)

    The truck looks gret Mark. How do you like them Courser Cts? My friends have them and they love them. I want my next truck is most likely going to be identical to yours.

    The tires are 285/70/17 Mastercraft Courser C/T's that are about 95% gone.


    It was just greased last weekend. Cleaned everything up really good and wiped it down afterwards so no dirt build up.

    Truck's sitting on a 4" Cognito Lift with all the front end braces and steering upgrades. I gained about 2.5" overall which is what I was shooting for. I was able to decrank alot (probably about 2"). A friend and I replaced the pitman arm, idler arm, and all ball joints at the same time. Drives straight and rides like a caddy now.

    See above ^
    2.5" rear blocks and spacers for my airbags.

    We're at about 9500 acres. I prefer Green equipment but it's not my check book so I have to let the boss get what he wants.

    Thanks!
