    Nice truck! In my opinion, you should color match the eye lids and grill to red.

    Looks great on the black wheels!

    thanks guys i appreciate it, the color matched eyelids and grill is soon to come i just couldnt afford it at the time and i couldnt stand watching the parts sit in my garage lol, and once my brother is finished fabbing up the rear bumper its getting powder coated black, i couldnt bring myself to doing anything with the stock bumper when its just getting replaced you know... and thanks about the shifter HOKIES all the way, maybe i should name my truck the maroon effect lol

    here she is before the body lift

    [​IMG]

    and after the body lift is just on the bed

    [​IMG]

    and then on all the way around( sorry for the night pics)

    [​IMG]

    From the front of the truck

    [​IMG]

    It got late and the mosquitoes were ridiculous so I called it quits, I've only gotten the lift on and put the interior back together I haven't brought up the bumpers hitch or radiator or re-hooked up the steering and put the gap guards on yet so ill do that tomorrow and post up some completely finished pictures. the frame looks hideous under the cab but once I get it painted up and the n-fab nerf bars on I think it'll look ok, and I'm skying the 35x13.50s so I'm happy for now

    Wouldn't it have been easier to just replace your struts and coils? Add a leaf in the rear?

    Would have an added 3 inches of lift with your drop bracket for a 9 inch lift and dramatically improved your ride.

    Now you are riding on a drop bracket, worn out stock struts, body lift. I hope you don't ever have to take it on the highway!!

    Thats what I could've done for the coils but I already have aal in the rear and blocks, when I do the rear I want to do it right with an alcan leaf pack, just didnt have the money to do suspension right now, and yep about once every two weeks I go bout 260 miles back home to VA 1 way then 260 back 2 to 3 days later
