Well it has been a while since the truck accident so now comes the list of upgrades that have gone into the truck and the ones still to come. First the entire rear end was dropped and taken off it was replaced with a new G80 locked rear end . all the suspension came out and was lifted 3 in new leafs , shocks , ubolts , u joints in the driveshaft since i was hit so hard it shot out from under the truck . Now as far as cosmetic The bed is still on but the one side is got some pretty big dents in her . Not sure ive been banging the damage out but got a ways to go so the delimmma is get a new bed or convert her to a crew cab flat bed with a gooseneck so i can haul more ...ANY ideeas or commets would be GREAT ... went with new black pwder coated rims still 17s with 305/70/17 on them . now the front i got really lucky and found a used ranch hand bumper in almost mint condition , so after a little sanding and prep a bit of new paint she looks like new . only thing was she came off a 2007 and i have a 2005 so a small amount of modification had to be done to the front of the frame , so i cut 4 inchs off and fabricated some new brackets so it sits just right gotta say i couldnt be happier . oh and traffic parts when you pull up behind them and your bumper and brushgaurd is wider and bigger then there ride LOL. so a few things to come are a 3 in body lift got to figure out what im doing with the bed and maybe a few lighting upgrade and addons let me know guys i will post some pics here soon to show what ive done .
