Dropped, tune up and fresh rear axle seals/brakes. Also need new leaf springs. Mine are sagging and one is missing a leaf.

Should be swapping it later next week. Had to order some retainer clips for the 98 head lights. I ended up breaking a couple when I pulled the stockers out.

Very nice! you can see a little bit of sag, but it isn't too crazy. I think 06+ mirrors would look great on that.

Looking good. The 98-00 headlights are definitely a b*tch, especially to align. You can't get even a small ratched in there, and a 5.5mm combo wrench isn't easy to find.

Watching this project. I like where its going.

Part of the problem is I have the stock tires in the bed. So it'll come up a little, but it's still saggy. I have some 06+ waiting to go on later this week hopefully.

None at the moment. Been busy/sick the last week. I have a few things to do to it. Just haven't had time yet.
