    -McGaughys 4/7 (2” drop spindle, coil relocators, and a 7” flipkit)

    -Led reverse lights
    -Replaced W/T console with 3-cup console then built custom center console with two 12's

    Haha, they weren't bad just really bouncy. The light backend of my reg. cab wanted to bounce all over the place with them, didn't have much of a problem bottoming out tho.. The street performers ride better wayyy better but with them the tops of my tires bang the rear fender wells from time to time and have left some indentions and what not as well as smacking frame sometimes.

    Edit: I had shock extenders on the air shocks but never put them back on with the belltech's when I swtiched. I still have the extenders but not sure if they'd make a difference.

    I think you need 50 series if your only dropping 1 inch

    Thought about that as I'll prolly never go lower than a 5/8 until I drop the cash to bag it but haven't really seen any rides on 50 series tires. Kinda looking for whatever I can get a deal on. Have some buddies that work at tire shops and been trying to find a decent set of used ones but no luck yet.

    I think it is 30..don't feel like checking on a calculator tho...pretty sure it's 30 tho..

    haha, exactly what I just had pulled up and was looking at. I was planning on trying to do the same drop he was thinking about with a cut coil so if he does it before I buy tires I guess that'll give me an idea. Thinking about it tho I'm sure a 50 series might be the best bet.

    Thanks :shake: I agree, trying to find a Denali grill to replace the billet and going to colormatch the gmc in a week or two once school is out. Dealing with someone on a newer front bumper if the price is right and going to get it and the rear bumper color matched as well.

    I thought so. He wants $350 but we got him down to $250. Still debating but will more than likely pull the trigger. Figure I could get what I could out of the one on my truck now and recover a little bit of the cost.
