    Truck looks good. As for lifting that would be up to what you are looking to do with it. New uca's are not required but do help to get the right alignment. Another question would be what is the backspacing on your wheels. If they are not @4.5 in then you may hit the UCA and need spacers. Lots of things change as soon as you start lifting. Good luck with your decision.

    You da man. That's what i'm thinking. 5100's set at 0" and 885 OEM's. Rear progressive 3-leaf kit in back with 5100's. With that setup I shouldn't need spacers right? I never thought about that because I have trd wheels that are pretty much factory.

    Added a Tekonsha P3 brake controller
    leather interior with heated seats (the heated seats were my excuse to my wife to get the leather kit!)
    K&N kit (i am very surprised at how much louder truck is when you get on throttle!)
    and different floor mats.....went with huskyliners in gray front and back.
    885's are in the mail, so now I just need to order some 5100's and a progressive AAL.

    Those leather seats are nice man.

    And that avid light bar is pretty sweet :thumbsup: :D

    Got any plans to to the BHLM? I think that would be nice to black out the rest of the front.

    Ya know, i have thought about doing the BHLM but i just know I'll have a seal problem and i would be ticked if it didn't work out. I have considered buying the eyelids in Black Sand Pearl. That would help.

    Got some DTLT's, the ceramic was bad around the flanges as you can see.
    After a lot of sanding, Naval Jelly (works wonders on rust), Dremeling, etc....I got some high temp ceramic paint and sprayed it down (torched it between coats a bit)
    It's in the oven for the second time now!

    Is that a shorty antenna? Nice looking truck.

    There is a set of BLHM lights for sale right now here on the site. Just a thought.

    Yup, it's a shorty antenna.

    Thanks for advice. I will NEVER take my headlights out and try to paint them like that, too much time! I may get ones like you mentioned though.
    However, i've got angry eyelids (T2's) i'm waiting on as we speak so it will be a while before i want BHLM's.

    QUESTION:
    What would look better on my truck?

    BHLM or color matched Angry T2 eyelids?

    I don't want to do both together, unless someone can convince me otherwise!
