Did they have to cut the bumper or valance at all for the cow plow?
I haven't looked too closely at it, but I believe that they did not have to cut anything. It will be a little bit before I get the cow plow off of the truck due to wanting to move the bumper up at the same time. I am really trying to wait til my buddy's shop is done. I would rather give him less money and put cash straight in his pocket, than taking it to his work and him just getting paid his regular pay.

With that said I ordered clear/smoked cab lights, Flo Pro 4" exhaust with muffler and 6" tip just now from Ebay.

BTW they have a 15% off everything coupon valid today only if yall have anything yall need to buy.

Here is a little update. I have a ton of parts sitting in my garage that I plan to get installed in the next month or so.

Exhaust, black low profile toolbox, painted handles, black bed caps, Bilstein shocks are all waiting.

So...I got tired of the x12s and always having a dirty truck. I definitely don't think it looks as good, but it drives so much better and rides better as well.

Tires are 10-20%, but will get me by until I find another set or order some. Still trying to figure out what size to go with. These are 295/60 Terra grapplers. Also OEM wheels with 2" adapters (plan to get 1.5" adapters for front to try to even track width). Pictures make it look like they stick out much further than they really do. A set of painted OEM flares would be perfect IMO.

Also hope to clean it up in the next few days...it has rained so much here, I haven't washed it in weeks.

Not sure if itd be any different, but on my half ton nbs, it was just the nips needing trimmed for 1.5” spacers, no big deal at all

Got new tires Friday and then had to go to my buddy's house. Went with Falken Wildpeak AT3W. Can't believe how much better these tires look in person. So glad I went with these.

Hopefully buddy gets time to put my truck on the lift so we can install my goodies.

Painted handles, rear bumper plastics painted, new chrome rear bumper, painted flares, remove ranch hand, move up front bumper, new front lights, shocks, leveling kit, AirDog, full exhaust, motor mounts, cab bushings, black toolbox and black bed rail caps, new Hydroboost...jesus I have lots to do
