front end swap and BL

I have only had the truck for 2 months, it started like this after i put the 33's on it



Now i have the PA body lift and an 01-03 front end swap done, still a lot of work to do, im planning on getting a custom front bumper for it






TA DAAAAA

The only thing that gives it away is the old style flares.

Looks really good. That's the same hood/ grille combo I put on my '99. I had some trouble getting the headlights to mount solid in the new header panel, I was short 2 clips and ended up making my own. (pics are in my cardomain, I don't want to steal your thread)

And the bumper. I didn't even notice the flares, but that bumper sticks out like a sore thumb.

see if you can move the front of your bed more toward the drivers side. i know how difficult it is to align the bed. factory bed gap between the cab and bed is 0.8"
