Well I said I wasn't going to start a thread but here I go. Probably more just for time line than anything. Won't be anything real special just a daily that doesn't look like every other truck in town! Started today with prepping for the arrival of parts! I took pics but apparently I don't have permission to upload.

Parts have been shipped! While I wait I have started doing some color matching. So far just the tailgate (which I broke the bezel so I will be re doing it eventually), re did the bow tie and started the doors.

don't even bother with a 2/4. Just do yourself a favor and go right to the 4/6.

Because you have a crew cab the only option you have for the rear is a flip kit. You can buy a flip kit with adjustable rear hangers, but you will start at 2/4, then you wont like it then go 2/5, then chop your springs to get 3/5... you will be happy for a few weeks, then you will pull the rear hanger off and go back to stock for a 6" drop, then order drop spring up front for a 4" drop... Trust me, I just did this!

With 22s on 265/40/22 ( per your sig ) you will have some mad fender gap... Just throwing that out there!

Going off the tire comparison 265/40/22 is almost exactly the same as stock. If I measure 4" off the wheel well it puts it fairly close to the tire. I am sure down the road I will go lower just not in the budget right now.

Wheels are 6 weeks out. Wait or look for different? I thought I had this all figured out. I don't know if my tires will make it 6 weeks!

This is about 4/6 on mine with 265/40.

I couldn't imagine my truck at 2/4 with this tire size.

I guess the upside here is that when I go 4/6 I'll be ready! I thought everyone said with 4/6 anything taller than 235/65 would rub. The 265/40 is almost exactly the same specs as the size I currently have.

They probably said 265/35, Which is a really common size on 4/6. Lol

Wheels came in. Couldn't wait to do the suspension before I got them. Hopefully no issues. Shouldn't be but this is luck we are talking about!

Do the front bumper cap and mirror caps red, and the lower valance black. :imo:
