update

not running yet, but next time I go home I plan on driving it.

















Chevy 4500 seats:



so which dash do you like better? (personally I like the overlay, but in the pictures it looks better without it, but it's different in person IMHO) and do you notice/like the white gauges that Sam introduced me to?

Those tires are 35x12.50 on 15x10" wheels, they are Mud Kings and are actually made by BFG, they are the entry level ones and are pretty cheap. I work at Belle Tire and I got them there, but I think they can be had for like $165 a piece or so.
