I'd call them up first and see if they'll help you out, if not just order some more. I've heard got things about KYB MonoMax and Bilsteins.

Looking good James. Did you paint the door handles yourself or did they come that way?
Thought about shaving mine, but I've heard so many horror stories, I decided not to.
Now thinking of painting them and the stock mirrors to match the truck.

I'll be in your neck of the woods in August. Sure is pretty country.

My room mate and I will be in Knoxville in August for the World of Outlaws nationals.
We'll be staying at the CoE camp ground at Red Rock Reservoir.

If you're still home, and in that area, we'd be honored to buy you a beer at the local American Legion, god bless and be safe over there.

Anything connected to the frame will stay stock height......exhaust, bumpers, towhooks. The bodylift should come with bumper brackets to make it all look right. The towhooks.....to remedy this, you can keep them, but you have to cut your valence to use them. Or just take them off. Your exhaust can stay...but it it really starts to bug you, i'm sure the local exhaust shop can help ya out in that department(raising the tip).
