not too bad of a price for it either. dixonbros.com
you dont have to go fast if ya have a L/T front end, more travel than factory is never bad, nor is being wider= stability

ha nah, ill be able to save, i saved up the money to build the truck, just my income stopped, and bills kept comming so i had to tap into savings, and then i needed new shocks, so i might as well get something worth while ha.

and there wont be any reason to spend money on the truck while im away at "A" school, and then i have no clue where ill get stationed at, but, once i get about a years worth of pay saved up in an account i cannot touch for a while, ill save up to mod the truck again ha

I don't think so, its no big deal saying double lifted imo. Saying "evar" is more retarded.

bedsides are stock, but pulled

when it comes time for fiberglass bedsides, the bed is going to be cut up ALOT. due to a last minute thing that i noticed AFTER we welded the cage to the frame.... the down tube is 1/2" above the last body mount haha, so it is now impossible to remove the bed, or even lift it without cutting something.
