I would cut the exhaust pipe right after the rear axle, especially if you use it as a trail rig because you might pinch it.

05blackranger- I've though about doing something like that, not sure if I should cut it or try and bend it up. Sometime down the road I want to get a new exhaust system anyways.
Ranger_Guy15- I like the truck. I was debating spraying my rims black, but after seeing your truck I'm probably gonna go ahead and do it.

Nice truck! What are your plans for the truck? More lift? What else to make it a trail rig?

98liftedranger- I was thinking of cranking up my torsion bars another inch or so. Also I would like to get a new exhaust system for it. For making it a trail rig, I was thinking of making a brush guard and a steel bumper. Also getting a rollbar with some offroad lights in the future.

I don't think your rims look good painted black. I've seen them on other trucks. Honestly all I'd do is cut the exhaust like mentioned. Stance, height, colour and all looks great. Btw, welcome to the site Austin.

Just an update- Not much has changed yet. However I did get some free steps that came off a dodge. I'm gonna have to weld up a bracket to the frame, but it shouldn't be to difficult. Should I polish them or paint them black?
