Truck looks awesome either way!!!

SilverSeven,

Would you mind sharing your setup for your truck? I have an '08 double cab and looking to do something like what you have. Are the gears still factory as well? I'm a novice at this stuff.

no problem man!
It currently has stock gears, and has for the last year + running fine, but i do plan on upgrading to 4.88s in the near future.

Currently I am running a procomp stage 1 6" lift with Alcan 6" leaf pack in the rear to eliminate the blocks and stock springs. I added extended stainless steel brake lines front and rear, however this was not entirely necesary, but i feel better now.

The rims are 18" helo blasters, polished aluminum, and the tires are 35" Pro Comp extreme mud terrains.

All in all i love the setup, just got the leaf pack installed and am loving the solidity of it. Next is coilovers, sliders, gears, exhaust, headers, 4 link rear, etc...

I battled that same question for a while, then I said what the heck, painted them and never regretted it. Go for it.
