Yeah they do! The only thing that'd make it better would be a locking rear diff! I'm in North Carolina

I plan on stealthing the rims Duplicolor Graphite soon (gonna test it out on the spare first just to make sure it looks good)

The truck came w/ practically brand new tires, so I'm gonna run them out first before I go about replacing them. But when I do, I"m looking at the BFGood's All Terrain's. These tires def. don't do any justice to the look of the lift!

I went wheeling just after I got the lift on w/ a bunch of other X's last weekend, and my wife saw the bigger tires on them (just after I lifted, & before we left for the trip, she rolled her eyes when I said I wanna get bigger tires for it). She's like "yeeeeaaaah...I definitely like the look of those bigger tires on their X's. They look good!" SOLD!!
