    What kind of lift you have on the front?

    Nice truck...congrats. Dont let anyone hate on you about your parents buying you a truck (not saying anyone has yet).

    I would take off the Body lift, because they are evil :D, and you probably dont need it to clear those 33's. But nice truck!

    And DONT WHEEL IT IN 4WD till you get the front geared!!! If you do you can grenade a diff...

    have fun!!

    Looks like a drop bracket type on the front. Like a trailmaster or something similar.

    Look at build!
    IMO they are ugly because you can see the frame under the mid section of the body and inside the fenders and then you can also see the gap between the body and front and rear bumpers unless brackets made to accomodate for it were also put on but most of the time not and ive also heard some pretty horrid stories and saw a link on here a whole back that flipped and the BL bolts snapped and the body completely seperated from the chassis... IMO if you actually plan to wheel it, i would get rid of it ASAP. But none the less you still have a very nice truck! Happy modding.
