    Here is a take two... previous build was outdated, too much to edit.

    I bought her brand new lifted from the dealer. It was a graduation present to myself, buying my dream truck. We have had our ups and downs but I love this truck, and dont think I will ever sell it.

    Nice truck! How do you plan on lowering it? Do you not like your lift?

    Thanks... I am going to adjust my front coil-overs down about an inch or so in the front, and get rid of the rear 4" block for an add-a-leaf....I love the ride that my lift has, but it has caused nothing but problems. It has never been able to get a good alignment, and I have gone through 4 rear drive shafts, and now front wheel bearings. I am hoping that lowering just that little bit will help with some of those problems.

    Hopefully that will help. From reading your build, you've gone through some trouble. At least you haven't given up on it. Hopefully things will work out.

    Nice Truck!!

    Saw it in the photoshop thread. I'm liking the black instead of chrome you are thinking of adding to the truck.

    Look forward to seeing the truck around Rio Rancho, noticed you were from the same area.
