Well, bout time i finally get around to turning her into a real work truck.. tired of having all my tools and crap taking up the entire rear of the cab, so i got me a nice gloss black checkerplated toolbox, and got some black side steps.
Oppinions on the steps?? Im debating keeping them, the main reason of getting them was to hide the frame a bit from the body lift. Mixed feelings on them, what do yuo guys think?
Also, finally got my 4.56 gears in, hopefully get them installed soon.
Anyway..... these are facebook pics, the site wont let me upload pics keeps timing out so i had to load em there, hopefully they work for everybody.
DOUBLE LIFTED and PREKEYD, 17x9 Eagle Alloy 197's, 35x12.5 Hankook Dynapro's, black headlights, 3" flowmaster exhaust, UD Pulley, K&N, JBA Headers, Motive 4.56 gears, Superchips Flashpaq Performance tuned, FOX shocks, Pioneer sound and much more.
At one point, I took my steps off....then I actually missed the way they looked on my rig. Plus, it helps my wife mount/dismount the truck. Personally, I like the way it looks on your truck. BTW, love your color scheme, mine is the reverse in your colors.
Sorry, I think pure military. Mount up! Dismount! X3 drop that MF! You fellas never heard those terms? Lol I guess in and out would sound just as bad. Hahaha I will just leave my wife outta this thread. Dood! Leave your steps on! Getting side tracked here people! -OUT

Had Line X quote to spray my tool box and it was $350. They said the amount of work involved in sanding, priming then spraying aluminium is what's driving the cost. FYI
ya thats roughly what I paid... after tax I think it was 332 or something. Good to know someone else was given a similar price so I know I didn't pay too much... though spending 330 to spray a box that cost 400 to begin with is certainly pricey. but imo, when the box is mounted on my truck... it was worth it... if only I had the bed rails done as well :(
The only reason I see to leave the steps is to hide the frame. Or you could spend 30 mins and paint the frame.
Yea i painted the frame once before but after years of mud and dirty and crap getting on it it finally sucked the color out when all the mud and dirt dried so i need to repaint it for sure, or Line-x it.
And TaggyTagz the gears cost me under $400 canadian for the front and rear
400, very interesting.. I want new gears so bad. I don't offroad heavily or anything so they don't have to be like.... professional competition grade or anything... just... work...
and I'd say keep the steps, I like the look, and it may come in handy for if you do a double lift... though I have to admit, they aren't the most practical step..
they're so close to the body of the truck you kinda have to wedge your shoes between the body and steps to use them... at stock height they're useless because if you can lift your left that high, you might as well go the extra 4" to get into the truck...
Lifted, you'd be better off having something that drops down a good 6" from the body or something... I just have never shopped to see what there is
