    Holy shiet. That's a good amount amount of monies. Ya thank goodness one of my friends did this kind of leveling kit for his Dakota and him and his dad basically did it. I gave them words of encouragement and was there to hand them tools :thumbsup: haha I'm just glad I have a lift. It's nice being taller than other small/ midsize trucks.

    Well installed my FREE toolbox. Drilled four holes in the bottom of the box and in the bed liner, put four screws underneath the bed liner and through the box with some wingnuts to secure it in. It works and its easy to take out for when I plop my motorcycle in.

    It really does. I was looking into putting one on but I think it would look too big on 1st gen. I am not too sure. Wanna put new wheels on her, new bumper, bed line, but mostly just get through college with her. Then probably sell it and get a 4 door white 2001-2004 4x4. I really do hate the fronts of 98s-00 and a 4 door would be great

    converting to 4x4 on those trucks are easy.. they pretty much slap right on..

    i can see why you'd want a 4 door, it is pretty sweet im not gonna lie.

    My truck was a 16th b-day present and after having it so long, i ain't never letting it go.

    4x4 conversion in the 2nd gens is a real biotch so i went and got a 82' p/u with a Solid axel, so my worries are slim. haha

    :spy: i'll be watching this build!

    Good mornin! Well maybe it's not the whole front end I don't like it's just a don't like the bumper because it's like a big mouth, hince me getting a bull bar to cover it up since plate bumpers are pricey!

    It was cheap and should've taken it! I would've had to derp the hood thou since it was from a green truck

    I gotta agree with you on there , I don't like the bumper either , we'll see how it looks with a plate bumper that me and my friend are gonna build , I feel the stock one sticks out too much

    I wish I could build a new bumper or had friends that could weld haha yeah it's just a big ole piece of plastic and ugly. But I'll probably just keep it till after college, sell her, buy a four door 4x4, and mod the crap outta that!
