    I picked it up this week.
    97 2500, 5.9 gas, 5 speed, new paint, no rust, $3000.
    I have a leveling kit and a few other goodies ordered for it.




    I'm looking for an MVP to hang off of the front and let it make me some money.

    A little over 1/4 million miles. :nod:
    I'm really good friends with the previous owner and I watched him drop in a motor with a little over 100K on it. The truck has been maintained very well and it a very tight truck. If you didn't look at the odometer you'd think it has 80K on it.

    Good looking truck. Why a leveling kit? Are you just trying to raise it a little bit?

    Yeah, I like when a truck sits level. It has a decent bit of rake to it now. After I mount a plow it will look like its falling on its face without a leveling kit.

    I put the leveling kit on along with a few other things. I got the plow mounted up too. I still have to get the headlight harness installed and a few other things, but you get the idea.



    I'm glad I put the leveling kit on as you can see it squats the front end a good bit still. These pics are taken with no ballast.

    ditto on the fender flares, where did you get them and how much.

    Thanks for the compliments guys.

    The flares are Bushwacker street flares. I got them through Advance Auto. I paid around $250 for them because a friend gave me a break on the price.

    I wanted something to add a little coverage with the wheels sticking out like they do. However, I didn't want the massive looking pocket style or extend-a-flare. I like the way these look.
