Updated truck pics for lift, tires, bumpers, etc

Well it took more than a year to amass the parts and then 6 months to get the time to get everything installed (almost). A before and after with a few semi-clean pics from today. MI is hell on vehicles...

before:


after:






And the new lights at night...



Have to still get the rear matching bumper on, install my traction bars, and then when i gets some cash get new gears (anyone want to give me their 4.30s??) Need it to warm up again for me to get the bumper moved up about 1/2 an inch. Road armor did not do the best job ever redesigning for the 2008-2010s. They have since updated again, but still not perfect, but beggars cant be choosers and its stout as hell. Ill try to find a way to mask the gap between the bumper and the grill a little.

i am active duty military and stationed in MI. Inspections are not an issue

The lift is a 8 in rize quadlink front (got 9 inches from it) and 9 in ouo traction blocks (still need to get the bars on) in the rear with a 1.5in add a leaf (too keep my rake).

Tires are IROK 39.5x13.50x20s on 20x12 rockstars. Looking to upgrade to 40 or 41s when these are worn out....or if i can sell.

Thanks for the comments.

Install took 2 hours with a friend (must have for the weight or maybe a really good tranny jack?). Everything is bolt on. All of the boltholes are oblong for adjustability, which is a good and bad thing. Its mounted with like 16 bolts, so its solid.

Construction is nice...everything is stitch welded together and seems solid.

Ill report back with like a 6 month or 1 year review on it depending on how it holds up.

If you do get one. Order it raw and powdercoat it urself. Mine had a base coat that got pretty banged up in shipping...so i had to have it blasted and recoated.

Let me know if you have any more questions
