new paint!(56k no)

Got my truck painted this weekend. I think it turned out nice. I was hoping for a darker red because it looked dark in the book but either way I like it. I think I'm done for good now with modding the truck.

The diamond plate is there because I cannot find a bumper bracket for my year so i just put that in the gap. Also got new front fenders, no more chopped up fenders.

Also look into your rear cab mounts they might be rusted and broke or the bushings are bad....

check the actual body mount bracketry as well, when you order the bushings, you will also need the sleeves, bolts and washers most likely.
