Only things I would do is remove the plastic piece below the radiator, paint the valance and grille, raise the rear bumper, and do gap guards. The rest looks good!

Nice, I need to paint my frame. It's been bugging me since I did my bodylift. I've been thinking about a superlift too.

Since I cant pm you whats the bs on your rims? The reason I ask is because my rims are 10" but they stick out alot farther in the front then yours. True I have a stepside but shouldnt mater in the front. Thanks

Ahhh thats the difference mine are 3.75 I wouldnt think 1/4" would make it so different. Where did you get them at? Time to sell mine and get ones like yours.

The difference is that yours are 10" and his are 8". 10" with 4 inch bs will stick out 2 more inches than 8" with 4 inch bs. The difference between 4" and 3.75" on a similar-width rim is minimal and hardly noticeable.

The truck looks great! I wish I could have got my wife to help me do my BL on my truck! All she did was take pics of me working hard.

Thanks buddy, No she's not afraid to get a little dirt under her nails, she's just better at pictures!

Brother I need to see more pictures of your truck, I'm deprived of good 4X4s to look at over here!
