    Westin Bull bar and skid plate, leveling kit, chrome tailpipe tip, window vent visors, dark tint, scangauge2, shorty antenna.
    Finally completed the mods I wanted! Westin bull bar and skid plate, CCM Offroad 2" leveling kit, MB Motorsports V-Drive 17 x 8.5 wheels, 265/75/17 Firestone Destination A/T tires, darker window tint, window guards, chrome tailpipe tip. I am now happy!! Thanks to CARS in Tulsa for getting and mounting the wheels and tires for me and installing the Leveling kit. Worked a deal with them- traded my stock wheels and tires for the leveling kit, labor and alignment. Thanks Cliff!!

    Not a big fan of Bull bars but I like the 'color match' look of it, looks tougher with that skid plate on the bottom too!

    Have you taken it off road since you did the 2" leveling mod, if so how did it ride? Have you done any other suspension work or is that the only mod in that respect?

    Just got the leveling kit put on last Friday, so no I haven't had it off road yet. As far as the ride, I don't really notice a big difference on the street. I maybe notice the bigger bumps a little more but not much. That's the only suspension work I have done.

    I want to say 30%? I had them just match the front glass with the tint that was already on the rear glass when I bought the truck new. It actually made the rear tint look darker. (optical illusion).

    Looks good. It's coming along nicely. BTW, I like the rims too! Haha. For some reason, they look like your truck is moving when its not. :D
