    yeah i knew i would get shit for the lift, oh well! on a budget since i am doing so much at once on my truck, it looks great, and a pretty good deal if you paint it yourself i think.

    Did you replace all 4 of your shocks with oem? Do you mind me asking how much that ran you? My shocks are all shot.

    So I finally got the apex plate bumper from all pro!! the bumper just bare is $649 , plus a few hundred for the PIAA lights, I decided to paint it myself instead of the $200 for powder coat from all pro. after shipping and everything it was just barely over $1000.

    Install was pretty easy, it says no modification at all on a 2001, yeah right, when I took the front end apart the support behind the bumper was smashed pretty flat on the passenger side, I was not aware of this damage so it was a bit of a surprise. anyways a few of the holes on the bumper did not align properly so I had to ream the wholes out so the bolts would line up. I guess it could be my truck but it could also be the bumper, it was only a few thousandths. Also had to chop off a small piece of frame horn thats in the instructions. PIAA were easy to install as well! No in progress pics sorry! it was late,

    after paint, i used a generic automotive trim paint.

    I think the stance is perfect. Do you have rubbing at full lock or when you stuff the tires?

    YESS, I already cant stand the spacers. Soon, very soon, I like to take a lot of time deciding what I want to do exactly before I do it. What would be good for the rear? I want to stay the same height.

    the front rubs if I back down my driveway to quickly and turn at the same time haha, so yes, I had to trim a little bit of the body off, guess I could go more.
