Nice truck. Is it the angle or is that rear wheel not centered in the wheel well?

Thanks guys....wheel is centered its the mud flap that makes it seem off center. I actually like some things about the truck(good ride, duramax,comfortable interior), but there a lot of low quality interior issues and the IFS that is just plain pathetic to have on a HD truck....im in the process of doing Idler arm/pitman arm/tierods...and who knows what else.

Nice looking truck.

seeing as how I don't wheel my tow rig, I kinda like the cushier ride of the IFS on my Chevy.

That there is a nice truck . . .
I'd keep it over the Powerstroke though. Lotsa more HP potential out of that there Jappy engine.

I'd almost think about trading you for my ol' dodge . . .

thanks man Only way the duramax will hold the power is you have to build up a mean trans....and then your only good to around 650-700max RWHP on the stock rods. I know of a few 700+RWHP 6.0l's powerstrokes running strong right now....who knows how long though:tonka:
