lol yes, white zipties holding bed supports on (i ran out of the big black ones)

nah, i just haven't had a chance to make it to my brother in law's to weld them in, and i didn't want them to bounce out... the zipties actually aren't even tight... just to hold them to the truck if they bounce out

something i found out recently, we don't use salt here... it's cold enough to freeze salt water, here... we used to use gravel and sand, but the average life expectancy of a windsheild here, is about 2 years... since september (when i bought my truck, and a brand new windsheild was installed) i have gotten 10 decent sized rock chips, luckly, it has not cracked yet (knock on ****)

but yes i agree, it sucks

that aside, what's the issue you see with the the front bumper?

like i said..cant tell if its the resized pictures..but the passenger side of the bumper, where it goes towards the fender flare, it looks like its touching..mine has a even gap all the way through. i think it should have a even gap all the way through..just need 2 people and some adjusting..losen the bumper, and adjust, then tighten again

i was noticing that today, but didn't pay much attention to it... i figure i'll see if i can find someone who knows how to do it, to give me a hand some time... it's level across the front, i think it's just twisted or something... the bumper has no rigidity along the sides eh?

i think it does that when u tighten it up. there's four bolts right? try tightening them like u do a wheel on a car..on a diagonal. just have someone on the outside hold it right..its gonna be pushed out some due to the brackets on the body lift.

How is that a chassis drop? The chassis didn't go anywhere, the body went up...

Looks great.. the only reason you front bumper looks out of wack is because you truck is flexed.. your frame is twisting, cauing the bumper to "appear" out of line

tom, it's a reference to that guy who made the pre-runner out of the 92? he had a 4" body lift and an 8" chasis drop with custom toolboxes and a custom bed and a bunch of other half asses ****, including stock tires

no, i think the bumper is partially crooked too
