Monster TRUCK!

Hey! I got a 2000 F350 with a 32" lift. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the Michelin XZL 53's. I have a set of Dick Cepek DC-1's that i would like to mount them on. Has anyone done this or seen this done? The tire shops around here are telling me that it will be nearly impossible to mount that tire on a drop center wheel.

The only pictures I have are with the 24" lift. This is before I did the 8" hanger lift to fit the 53's.

haha thanks to everyone for the comments! and believe it or not, the gas bill isn't as bad as you would think. It gets around 14mpg, which is in no way good, but for a truck that size i can't complain!

I will get more pics up when we finish the rest of the lift.

I like your truck. Do you have any trouble with law enforcement (ride height) or is it just an offroad truck? Around here the State Patrol would have their
tape measures out right away for that.

I know, I love it to death when someone complains of getting 14-18 mpg and I'm having to deal with 12.8 consistantly(and some of that is highway miles empty at 2k on the tach.).
