Looking good!

Have you planned for either a suspension or a body lift?

What happened in the wreck? The markings on the door look weird.

I used to not rub but I had the keys bottomed out but for fear of my cv axels I backed off about 2 inches and they rub a little but not bad

It's been a while since I've posted something on here so here's an update
New tires BFGs 35x12.50x15 with a full size spare


Some flexing


HIDs and some more lights



Was backed into by an 18 wheeler

Painted the flares with bed liner

Custom tune and programmer

Larger filter and 3 inch MAF tube

E-fan take engine a good bit longer to warm up now

No doors

installed traction bars

Went to pull a part yesterday and got some leaf springs. Planning on completely getting rid of the 4 inch blocks. I'm making a 7/8 leaf pack

Painted the mirrors black
I have ordered all the part to swap my truck to manual locking hubs and I will be locking the front end

If you lift the bumper 3 inches you'd be able to see the frame under it
