    Default Installed Bilsteins and now the truck is leveler-er

    I got my shocks for the front on Friday finally and installed them yesterday. The truck rides so much smoother now and it lifted the truck back up another 1" in the front (more than likely because my old shocks were the stock ones and SHOT!). Enough rambling, here's some slutty pictures:




    And a poor attempt at "flexing" since my snow tires are about wore out and the snow is slick right now, lol:



    Tomorrow I should be getting the racks for the topper, and I am hoping next week they will ship out my old man cab visor, lol. Just got a hospital bill in the mail for a little over $600 so I will have to put the rest of my mods on hold for a month or so to get that paid off. Anyway, let me know what you think!

    Looks good, but I bet the ride is much better now.

    The ride is like when it was new (or new to me anyway). It's fantastic!

    Your truck is looking great. I sure like the tow mirrors, I want some!
