Updated Pics after a couple Mods.

So I just put the Suspension lift on yesterday, and painted the grille.
Hope you enjoy. Same thread as on FRF and RPS.

Heres a few pics of what it used to look like. :D

This is the only picture I have of it stock with cheap fogs.
Sorry its so small.


With 30's stock height.


After a 3" BL and 30's. With ugly *** decals. Custom crap bumper. Still don't know why I did that.

haha! Yeah, The body lift blocks are worn, so the bed has moved over to the right almost an inch. I've just been too lazy to fix it. Good eye, although it is kinda hard not to notice!

Seems to have moved more when the truck is on a little flex. Maybe some loose bolts or worn body mounts. Rubber is all gone and stuff.

Truck looks great man.

Whenever everyone can make it I'll be there. Still have a little bit of stuff to do to it before I take it anywhere though.

Yeah, I think one of the bolts is stripped, because I cant tighten it and its loose. Gotta buy a new nut & bolt. Thanks.

I rebuilt the bumper over the past 3 days. It's a little basic, but I like it. The tire mount is detachable so I can still use my tailgate. I also put on some Cherry Bomb Glass Packs. They're cheap, But I think they sound better on a 3.slow than Flowmasters do.

Dust, why do we need DUST! I work near a quarry and thats the only thing I hate washing off my truck. Ground stone is what that is, fine scratches in the finish and all over the dash board. What the best way to prevent this? I tried a car cover once....just once, I hit a spray booth at the car wash when its real bad. What do some of you guys do before you wash your truck "if" you live in a dusty area? Thanks,

yeah, when its real dry for about a week, the dust makes the truck look like its light gray. I hit the car wash for a $5.00 pre-soak, soap spray and rinse.

Thanks,
