Thanks for the input. Pics tomorrow!
Maybe this weekend I will get my tires switched over to the white rims since I will be nearing completion on the axle swap.

Do you not like the lift? Did you springs in the back or blocks?

Not sure what you're asking. Lift is in as was from the start. Springs in the back as well. A little bouncy due to the short bed.

This is what I was referring to. I am also looking at a lift and just gathering information.

I actually like the "old school" wheels with the newer grill. I hve an 83 Chero, stock muscle grill and I have the 71/72 Jeep white rally (Like the chevy ones) wheels. I think they look cool, heavy, but cool. This truck looks great just like it is. But I think whatever you do from her on out, she will look good. Just no huge lift or monster tires
