    Hey man, sick truck. I've been looking at body lifts lately. If you have minimal rubbing with those tires, why not just go for a 2" body lift -- that should be just enough to clear right? And they seem pretty easy to install in an afternoon in the driveway.

    Nice job,

    My truck is burgandy but I have been changing the chrome over to black (not sure how much I want to do) I blacked out the bowtie and concidered doing the whole grill. Did you take it somewhere to get your grill painted or did you spray it yourself if so what with?

    I'll chime in, I did mine both ways, myself and let a bodyshop do it. I'm picky and pretty darn good with a rattle can, did it right using etching primer, basecoat, clearcoat and wet sanding out the orange peel and mine looked great, but stone chips beat it up pretty good. The one from the bodyshop looked perfect and has held up much better. Spend the $100-200 and have the pros do it.
