The question is not what I did to it but what I did with it?

I watched it sit in the parking lot of my apartment where it has been sitting since Friday the 9th when I got back from the ER where I was diagnosed with three pulled muscles in my back and neck. It will sit there for the next 6 weeks. :(

no offence, but imo, it looks bad on a truck that low... if it were jacked and didn't have those stickers on the lights, they would look way better

stickers ?
oh, those are polycarbonate headlight covers, not stickers.

I am torn, I like how it looks in the front, but I think I need a little wider tires, axle or something else in the rear.
I still have my old 1" adapters from when I was running 5x5 bolt rims, and am thinking of a way to use them on the rear, that extra inch would make a huge difference in how the truck looks, and handles.
mainly though, I think the camper top is taking away from the appearance, I'll know better when I can remove it and see.

I got prices from everywhere for my body lift, ended up getting a local shop to order it in, inquired about rims for sale on here (shipping) and will be ordering my tires when I get home, trying to get the nerve to spend an entire paycheque in one place...

Got paid a few hours, gas, and mileage to get a Flowmaster Delta 50 Series, Single-in, Dual-out exhaust system put in, with two 3" tips coming out infront of the rear tire. Really satisfied, about the best video I could at the time.. Sounds a lil throatier in person but its pretty close

I removed the front grill and bed rails, repainted them black instead of sun-faded grey. painted the little tabs that cover the bolts to remove the bed rails yellow, and re-spraye dthe bed with more liner! The grill wouldnt comeoff by itself, so I had to remove the whole front peice and spend about 2 hrs taping any yellow i saw, looks great now though!
