That's Jorge Espinoza's rig.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it's a 3.5 inch lift with 315/75 R16s, and spacers. That's also his truck you see in every background to the forum.

I keep meaning to change that picture. I will see if the rotation script Charles came up with for the not so random picture widget can work with the vB coding and then that can rotate too.

I definitely like the look of OEM wheels over black steel wheels. Never really got the point of steel wheels unless you off road all the time and require a larger offset with that bigger tire, or you want to look like you do the above.
