Took some pics of my sagging springs. Going to shop around locally and see if anyone here can replace them for me (and will most likely order the Wheeler's pack if I can't source something locally). Wonder why there was a TSB for 2nd gen springs and not these...they're obviously not the proper spring for this vehicle.

That's a good point. Maybe I should try out the solid motor mounts. Not like its permanent if I don't like it.

First mod..get new rims or tires. You shouldn't be running a 10" wide rims on 10.5" wide tires.

Then loose the nerd bars..sliders man

Get a magnaflow muffer then a sc and deck plate mod for performance

Bit more importantly..do what you want. It's your truck not ours.

I mainly got the 10" wheels with 10.5" tires to give it an offset kind of look. Is it bad to be running them like that?

I probably will look around for some nice sliders and maybe some skid plates

And as far as the magnaflow muffler I will probably get the magnaflow catalytic converter instead because the stock one needs to be replaced

For offset look you just need a less back spaced wheel. Not a wider wheel.
I will probably just wait until the tires wear out that I have and put a 2" body lift and go up to a 33x12.50 tire

I hear they make them ride a lot more rough too

Ill probably just stick with the same size tires and wheels that I have and add some more mods to it

Looks are up to you man. Personally i think body lifts are dangerous. As for performance id try to trade out your wheel tire combo for something a bit lighter. 4cyl tacos no likey heavy wheels and tires. Listen very closely to blackdogs suggestions. He is somewhat of an expert.
