Picked up this clean 13' last night. I've got to say just the interior going from an 06 is ridiculous.

Side note, it has a pretty nice kore 3" lift with Fox 2.0 remote reservoirs and atlas leaf Springs that'll be up for sale in the coming weeks as my thuren stuff comes in if anyone is interested

I'd prefer to sell the lift as a whole...it soakes up bumps insanely better than my BDS lift I had on the Power Wagon. The thuren steering I had on the old truck was noticeably better though. The turbo lag takes a while to get used to

Thanks man, yea figured might as well save money in the long run as opposed to buying other wheels and then regretting it. I know most tire places won't touch beadlocks...here in SoCal I'm sure there are some 4x4 shops that'll do it...but is it something I can do myself, watching videos seems pretty straight forward. That being said...will places like discount tire balance bead locks?

No chain tire shop will even balance them down here, you might find someplace in cali though. It's pretty darn easy to assemble trailreadys if you have a 5 gallon bucket some soapy water a torque wrench and a free afternoon. I've always used balance beads on my hutchinsons and trailreadys, they're reusable and work for the life of the tire, just make sure to use enough because of the extra wheel/tire weight. With 37's I use 10-12 ounces per wheel. I can't wait to see your truck man!

^^^^ Yea what he says... dont bother trying to find someone to balance them with typical weights, just toss in balance beads when you are mounting them and be done with it.

I asked the Discount near me about their policies today actually- they will not touch beadlocks of any sort. Won't even balance them.
