Thanks! Now all I need is the Roush body kit, behind the roll pan reciever hitch, and some 18X9 and 10" FR500 wheels with the DSG centers! Anyone able to photochop those wheels for me?

Actually, yes. And I have to remember to move the drain pan before I drive off the ramps, 'cause the cross member doesn't clear the drain pan. Broke one to find that out. Had to drive back up the ramps to get it out, and by then had a heck of a mess!

My stock jack does not reach my lower a-arms.. though bottle jacks are a bad idea to start with..

I have to use my friend's big *** floor jack

I don't know how you went an inch lower, unless you have smaller tires! Theres only about two inches to the top of the front wheel wells!

So whats stopping the dropping?
Extended cabs +v6 drop more than reg cabs maybe 1/2 inch to an inch more plus Im on 3" belltech coils on djm arms instead of the 2" inch djm coils, also Im running 235/45/17 which is a 25 inch diameter tire compared to the stock 27 inch diameter tires your running now.

whats stopping the dropping? Well I already have one dropped truck 2 would be pushing it and turning it into another money pit and its not to fun driving a truck dropped 5/7 through snow every winter I did it for 2 years with my 98 and had enough of that I like stock height now in winter time no worries.

I carry a floor jack in my tool box and that just barely gets the tire off the ground, but hey it does the trick. Man I love your truck! I want it!

Yeah, don't have to wory too much about snow down here. Last time we got and signifigant snow I was driving a '67 Fairlane Station wagon dropped 7" and I was plowing snow drifts with the cross member. And that was only 2" of snow! i understand.

That looks really good! I like the wheels, gives it a factory look but still looks customized. Keep it up.
