New owner, new poster, been lurking for a long time.
Found the exact truck I wanted, a left over, New, Silver, 2016 Eco Tradesman Crew 4x4, nothing fancy, just plain old work truck. Gave 33.9k for it with 3.4% finance at 72 mo, put 12k down, MSRP was ~44k and change. It had big cheap black 20inch rims on it, tires and a leveling kit, they wanted 2k for all of it, so I asked them to remove it all. They did.
I plan to add back the leveling kit (researching that now), i think i want to keep the original struts/ride, and just lift it the minimum to be level with spacers maybe, something where i dont have to break down the strut. I just want to run a 20 inch wheel and tire that doesnt kill the mpg, or even affect it that much. I am getting ~27mpg so far. Loving it. I may just dip the stock steel rims and keep them for summer tires. Never seen any stock rims done, it may look foolish to me, never know.
I kept a little $$ back, so i got husky mats, a Tonneau tri fold bed cover, 6inch black running boards, and coverking neoprene seat covers. I love the front bench seat, been a while since i had one, now i remember why i like it. First full size truck since high school. It rides a bit better than my old 77 Bonanza =P.
Im on here this morning researching fender flares, i want to keep the black bumper look and just go black out, I like the way it looks if it kept simple. If i can find cheap set of the factory alloy 20's, im gonna either dip them or have them powder coated if possible. I'd love some cab lights on it too, big ole yeller ones, i like the old school look. (amber)
