My Sons new truck,(Chevy 4x4 Z71),> we just put these tires & wheels on. ProComp A/T's(33's) & ProComp Extreme Wheels. The first time I've been in a 6.6 Duramax 6 speed Auto, WoW!, does it run.

Thats a nice rig........ If I had the coin i'd be signin up on one of those too!

[3="Red"]33's fit without a lift...?[/COLOR]
No,..had to crank Torsion Bars up 10 turns about 1-1/2 front lift & trim some plastic fender liner in (lower rear). No rubbing at all in the front now, Believe me, this is a bad a$$ truck when it comes to a hard run-out, power power power.....

Awesome truck, I'm hoping to replace my 2001 1500 Silverado Z-71 with one of those in a year or so.
He had a F-250 V10 before this that he loved, but, this is a whole different ball game...I'm still impressed everytime he takes me somewhere, it feels like the Muscle Cars of my late 1960's years > you'll love it. I'm mounting his CB tomorrow & found a nice place up & under his dash.

We went with the seam Mount, I built him a mount & it wasn't hard. 2 bolts already there in the seam so the "ground" was great. Got done late so pic's will come maybe tomorrow. It really sounded great with that Wilson FGT4' Antenna, nice little radio Shack ShackTRC 521 that I gave him. Found the Firewall Grommet right behind brake pedal & upper left, the coax & red/black went right through with a little slit cut into it..

Antenna Bracket:

That's awesome and great to hear everything turned out so great. I remember how much I used to battle that grommet for wiring everything from lights to stereo equipment until I had a friend of mine tell me to tape the wires to a wire coat hanger and thread them through that way....been a lot easier ever since. Thanks for sharing that. I might have to "borrow":D that idea for my 86 Jimmy when it comes time for the CB.
