    Plans as of right now are to get it Rocklined as soon as winter is over. Gonna get a leveling kit oredered this week. And gonna get a front bumper built by Bearclaw bumpers when a little extra money comes available.

    If the rocklined is stuff for your rockers and such, make sure any rust is fixed first. Otherwise the bedliner stuff will just make it rust 10x faster by holding moisture.

    It's got the posi locker in it. Just need to find some weight to throw in the back and it'll be like a tank

    Don't waste the money on a leveling kit. All they do is allow you to turn the bars up more. Unless you want to get the front more than 2 extra inches just crank the bars 6-8 turns.

    Would look good with some cab lights.

    That's what I was gonna do originally with the bars but was looking online and found a kit that came with an extra leaf for the rear and a block to keep some of the original rake, plus the shocks are kinda shot. I've been thinking about the cab lights too. Any recommendations on what to get?

    I put Go Recons on mine. I like them but the gaskets were a pain to deal with but it comes with a really well made harness.

    I imagine it's a pretty straight forward install.

    Pretty much. You spend more time making sure everything is lined up right before you drill that first hole lol.

    I cant remember if the lights came with measurements to help place the lights or if I googled them.

    my advice, save your money and don't waste it on a work truck unless its repairs to keep it running to make money... I was young once too and dumped cash into pointless crap... JMO tho.. I had a 01 and you will start getting countless problems with it that will drain your wallet... All we ever do now are things to trucks that can transfer to the next... as we pound the piss out of them, this industry isn't easy on them...
