    Nice build and truck. That led light bar is freaking bright. I was thinking about getting one but wasn't Shure how bright it would be. Where do you live at cause I'm almost certain I've seen your truck before.

    Sweet! A Buckhannon person! I live close to the high school, but drive around a good bit and you've probably seen my truck.

    EDIT: I have seen you before. I remember the first time I saw you. I forgot what road it was, but I was like, holy crap that's a sick truck. Lol. I've seen you drive out by on the old Elkins road before.

    Well the only reason I got an auto because I just didn't like the stick in the newer models. They aren't horrible, but comparing it with mpg to an auto, the auto wins. My truck now is an auto DCSB with a 3" lift and 33s and it gets 1 mpg better compared to my last 6 speed truck which was completely stock. That wasn't the only reason I got a different truck, but it was one of the main reasons. Definitely drive both before you decide. It's pretty much preference.

    EDIT: and newer models as in 05-08. Not sure how much they changed 09+.

    I'm pretty much leveled now. 3" lift in front, 4" lift in rear. Doesn't look level, but it is. Might get 1/4" or so lower in the front after a steel plated bumper.

    Took the bull bar. That thing was junk. Plus the clean look is so much better.

    Like try to take it? No. My grill has to be taken off to get to the bottom of the bolts to take it off.

    You can, but someone will have to yank the crap out of it to get it unhooked. Lol
