    Black straight up. I like the tidy/finished look in most cases, and yours is just stealthy!

    so took the truck out all day yesterday. Bed supports were doing great all day.
    Here is some pics
    [​IMG]
    made them bolt into factory spots for tailgate.
    [​IMG]

    Then I notice my driver side bedside is wiggling again and i realize the support broke right above the weld to the tube, so did a half ass weld in the drive way at 11pm and looks like shit with 2 welds on top of each-other but ohh well. Put the ratchet strap back on to take some pressure off the supports.

    just so you know, as long as the coils you have are holding up your truck thats all you need with the coils. the stiffness/softness is all in valving.

    dont want you to get new springs and not need them.

    This is true to a certain extent, if you have a 600lb spring cranked way down, it will have a higher spring rate than a 700lb spring not cranked as much

    yes you are right.

    so unless you have a stupid amount of preload, i wouldng change out coils.
