just got back home(7am) truck rides awsome! just need to get new rims and an alignment. and figure out if the shackle drop bracket will lift the rear of the truck a bit since it looks like a dog dragging its butt in the grass haha.

pics will be up later

Looks great, Eric, you'll enjoy the Blitz kit a lot. Get some bedsides soon, I destroyed my stockers from the tucking. Get some tires and rims and some tubework on their!

Cut the wings off the front bottom of the fenders too, and get them painted. :) Looks great man.

Looks sweet!

I would rethink the clear PC though... It will eventually do one of two things, either yellow or rust under the clear coat. I've seen both happen. If it were mine I'd go with a nice dark gray.

and now we have video! 3 15second clips from the first time offroad with it.. front handles well, back end likes to buck a bit... ill be getting different limit straps to allow it to droop more(if the shock allows for it) and hopefully some air bumps out back so the 5100s will last longer when i really beat on it
