Nice truck...well all except for the regular cab part

Suspensions...check these threads out. A bunch of us 1st gen owners went through some upgrades last spring. These might be helpful to you (lots more info out there too)

Fender flares...Bushwackers are popular but before you buy them consider what you will be buying for tires later on. If you're planning on going with a lift and larger tires (33's) you may need different flares - cutouts vs. extend-a-fenders.

And welcome to TW!!

thank you lol

I wouldn't have cared if someone drooled on my first car since the napkin was worth more than it.

Oh and OP, I am one of the happy customers from the wheelers leaf spring group buy Mtgirl linked you to. Wheelers and downsouth motorsports are the places to go for suspension.
