    Haha, yea that's what I was thinking. U still have your sway bar attached? A lot of guys on here take them off, and that would contribute ALOT to body roll. Even if so, new bushings might help you some.

    Ok just checking. Your truck looks good man! And another thing. How do the tinted blinkers work for ya? I don't really like the blinkers on our style from end, but they look good blacked out.

    yeah i dont like how the blinkers are in the bumper where fog lights should be.. not gona lie they are way to dark, and during the day its kinda hard to see. but when you think about it they are hard to see without the tint. but i like the look.

    I seriously dunno whether I want my lights tinted or chromed out. I'm kinda leaning towards the blacked out theme for my truck, but clear corner and blinked lights would look good too I think. With my Color truck its kinda hard to decide

    I'm gonna have to look into it. I've been itching for something to work on with my truck. I should extend my differential breathers too.

    beautiful rig, man.

    i had a Q about your rack setup. I too have the Q stretch kit and towers, but am kinda reluctant to purchase the 48" crossbars...i feel like they look a lil short on the roof from all the rigs ive seen online. How long are yours, 48"?

    Thanks man. I just picked up a NEW kit with 48" load bars for $150!? Incredible deal. the seller had no use for it and was leaving the states, so I hopped on it before someone else did. Looking forward to installing it soon. Keep us all posted on how that LED setup works! Looks good.
