Eric, I'll pm you my number. If you want to hang out while you're out here I'd be glad to show you around. Glad to see the sport spreading to other states. Blitz makes a good product, my friends with the mid-travel kits have nothing to complain about. Good luck and get some pictures started!

haha they werent tooo bad.. knocked the heads off with a plasma cutter and once the bracket popped off a few of em slid right out since its still a new truck and they didnt have a chance to rust over haha. but a 3/8" bolt that fit the hole seems small.. so when i pull the bed back off im gonna run 2 1" beads on each side to make sure it wont fall off.
and damn it was a PIA for the front bolts since the factory ones didnt fit the sleeves...

and the double wrap on the springs goes forward correct.. i sure hope so haha
