Happy to oblige but I don't want to thread-jack. . .I'll post these few since the boats were an utterly bad-@$$ addition to the thread. . .

It's a pair of CTS-V's. The sedan is a full cage race car putting down about 950 to the wheels on E85 on a blown 434. Used to be a daily driver but that was long ago. The coupe IS a daily driver, and I instruct in it occasionally. It makes about 650 at the wheels on 91 and about 712 on 100 octane unleaded plus meth. It's a massaged stock block and blower. The series is called the Cadillac Challenge.

Last year they were gray:




This year they are back to original black raven:

Can I trouble you for a few more pics? Feel free to pm me. Love to see some other angles with the cap. Your truck is really beautiful.

Looks great. I'd been vacillating on getting one, but now you've helped me make up my mind. Thanks for taking the time to post. Your truck is magnificent!

Here is my current truck. Down getting a 15 turbo setup from No Limit right now.





I would like to upsize the wheel and tire setup, but don't want to run into issues towing heavy or putting the trailer at a bad angle causing rear blow outs. Whats the biggest setup I can get away with, without running into issues? I would assume 20's and 33's or something similar. I've seen a few guys with 35's and it looks awesome!

I will be able to tell you shortly. I have the Carli Commuter Kit (2 inch leveling) and airbag helpers. I'm waiting on 20 inch AF's to run 35's. I don't expect it to mess with my towing at all, but you never know. At stock height, I think 33 is as big as you can go. . .

Great looking rig, all around. The trailer too!

Everything should be done by the 3rd. The wheels are the seams pot to completion deadline. Everything else should be done by next Friday! I'm expecting the "before and after" pics to be well, dramatic.

I just ordered 20s and am going to s 275/65r20 tire which is the same size as the SRW trucks that have factory 20s. They are 34". I'll get some pics up when it all gets put together.
