thanks for the compliments. :shake:

it's been a while since i did it but i think this is what i did. i believe i just measured off the body line and mocked everything with tape first.

it only took you forever to get it to look that good. good job bub lol :handshake:
haha i know tell me about it. almost have had the truck for 2 years now.

What size body lift did you go with?
03-05 2" performance accessories.

That height looks almost perfect for a DD, not that tall but not stock.
yeah 33's are perfect for a daily imo even tho i'd like to throw another 6" under it. :crazy:
after these tires where out, which i can't wait because i hate them, i'd like to throw on some 33x13.50's muds.

It looks awesome man but what about gap gaurds?
still undecided on them. it doesn't bother me that much. the whole frame and rear wheel wells are now bedlined so it's less noticable. if i were to run them, it would only be in the rear and i'd make something out of metal and bedlined to match. the front i wouldn't do anything so when i throw my stainless steel headers on you can see them.

thanks fellas.
what do you guys think about running spacers until i get some wider tires? the 295's just don't stick out far enough for my tastes.

making the bumper brackets took some thinking but wasn't too bad. just a shit load of measuring to make sure it was where they were suppose to be. basically just cut the mount off the frame as close as i could, used a 90º piece of metal to hold it up and welded it all together. don't have pics of the side bumper brackets but i just welded a piece of metal to it to lengthen and drilled new holes. brought the bumper up 2 1/4" to fill up some of the stock bumper gap as well. these are the only pics i have on me. still have to pull the bumper off and plate the end of the frame and weld on my d-ring mounts.
