Then reattached my clearence lights for the "look at me" factor. I think it looks good. And it's not that noticeable standing away from the truck. Meaning it doesn't stick out. What do yall think??

Painting it black matches the theme i'm going with. Only problem I have is when I do actually wash the truck, all the tree needles get stuck in between the diamond plate and the bed. Drives me insane!!! lol.

it comes with brackets but then it leaves your hitch down low and your exhaust and i saw a guy who did it and thought i might as well just do that instead

You can always take the hitch to a fab shop, and have them raise it. You can always head off the to exhaust shop and have the modify the tail pipe....so it'll look right.

Yup thats what Im plannin on doing for the hitch and exhaust..gotta hide that body lift! Now what i am worried about though is that my exhaust is coming out corners. I cant raise it but so high because of my leaf springs. Hopefully we can figure out something

I think that black diamond plate looks great on your 1" body lift...looks almost like you wanted like that before the lift..I like it. But when your bumper is hanging down three inches along with the exhaust and hitch I just cant stand that..its gotta be raised in my mind
