My truck is black and that duster is a huge time saver. Works like a charm.

Anyone around here know anything about level kits? Looking to slightly raise the front and rear equally so I still have the factory rake. Any ideas what I should/could do? I'm thinking a 1.5" front AS and 3" rear block from AS as well.

Need opinions...

well, i'm not sure how about others are going respond to this.

but here's how i plan on doing things.

i plan on hauling from time to time. I've done research and i find that i'm going to install the roadmasters on my truck at some point after i install a winch and front hitch. so, with the weight of the winch weighing down the front of the truck, and the roadmasters going to rake out my truck a bit more, then i'll level the truck.

so if you think about it, the roadmasters are going to lift the rear a bit, and make hauling everything so much better. but with the weight of the winch, then i'll figure out how much of a level kit i'll need.

then i'll go with a propitch swaybar kit.

I'm hugely torn on what to do in regards to a level kit. Took my cap off yesterday, that son of a ***** was heavy as ****, pretty sure I gained an inch of lift in rear removing that.

I have a mint set of black oem carpet mats for a screw as well as the oem rubber mats for sale if anyone's interested.

Pretty quiet here lately

what cap did you have on? length?

I've got a leer 100XL (no fishing rack or "above tool box") and I was told it's about 200-250lbs total weight. 5.5 box

well, it's a bit of weight that's for sure.

my plans are to weigh my truck down with everything "toy" wise before I level or lift it out.

Good stuff. God I love truck toys. This coming week will hopefully be the start of my raptor liner project. Front and rear bumpers. Body line down from front to back. Leading edge of the hood. A 2" strip on the top edge of the box all the way around. oh and bushwackers. tinting the liner with my base coat then spraying over it with endura pearl to match my paint. Then a light misting of clear, although after spraying endura tier 1 clear isn't really required.

Should look good when completed.

Then get my painted tow mirror caps on, Harley tails, black oem hid's...led light kit...removing the grey 4x4 decals and replacing them with the same decals only in matte black...

Oh wait and PTM door handles...

Stinking snowball effect...

Plus I have to fit in an oil change, transfer case fluid change, throttle body cleaning and slap my bakflip hd on....

I think that's it...luckily the ball and chain and kids are going to her folks place at pine lake for over 2 weeks so ill have spare time...
