    Allpro off road makes some awesome off road parts, like winch bumpers, sliders, skid plates. In the rear you could go with dever 10 leaf pack and some sweet shocks like Icon formally [Donahoe racing] ,fox or kings. I did see a new set up in a magazine that changes your rear end to a four link set up with coil springs I cant remember the name but the Sky's the limit with this truck. As you probable already know with just a few mods these things can go anywhere.

    Question for Silver07taco,

    First your bumper looks good! My question or questions are
    : Did you install it yourself ?
    : Dose it hook up to your airbag sensors and your fog lights ?
    : And was it hard to install

    Sweet I really want to know how he likes them. And yes I went to moab in April for the first time in a 4x4 and it was the coolest thing I have done in a truck. It was crazy what these things can do. I have lots of video and pix. Video on youtube. look up lightmup2 and it will bring up my vids. pix are on my album on this site. Planing on going back in September.
