I didn't realize that you had put your 33s on stock rims. Most people go to 15x8s when they go over 31s. Unless they have Alcoas or something. Even Cragers or something.

I'm just blind and didn't know you had stayed stock wheels.

Go bigger than 33's, start considering a gear swap....



Looks good. Do yourself a favor and grab a couple cans of quality flat black paint and paint the frame rails. I did mine a few months back when I was bored...started out painted just the e-brake line.....turned into painting the entire frame. Looks soooooo much better without stepbars on it.

Did you not get lift brackets for the bumper?

Thank you, I didn't want to be the only one stressing that. I looked like a naysayer for sure.

I agree, painting my frame gave the truck a whole new life. Doesn't looks so rust belted.

Standard cabs have different tracks under the seats. If you find some from a standard you like though you could swap the tracks.
Thanks for the heads up man, I appreciate it. Mine is a supercab, so let the search begin!

No I got lift brackets shane, im getting KLC's lvl 2 8.8 so I should be good there. I think I might as weel go ahead and paint the frame, but im going to need some step bars anyways cause my girlfriend had a hard time getting in it with just a suspension lift. I want to get some door actuated ones but I can't find any for our trucks.

Did you put the retainer bracket on the A/C line.....if you didnt then you rubbed a good hole in your A/C line..there's a factory 13mm bolt on the pass. side right above the oil pan that you have to bolt the retainer bracket to..that you BL kit DIDNT come with...its a 1 1/2" conduit c-bracket/clap.
