It sounds like the right idea to me. I would also loose the step and the graphics while you are at it. Looks like Grampas truck to me. What color are you going to paint the lower section and fender flares?

Nice, what sort of lift are you going to do and how high? If you are only looking for a couple inches, you should consider strut spacers. An aluminum disc that goes in above the strut tower. Makes more sense than jamming something right in the coils and effectively loosing some of your suspension.

Post pics with that 6" lift with 35's I have a reg. cab longbed too and want to see how it looks. I think with the red lower white upper you described it might end up looking like a fire truck

Not a bad point. You might want to make sure its a rich burgundy or cherry red.

Oh ya, so it is a 4x4...barely! I don't imagine he'd easily find strut spacers for it anyways than. He already said hes going for a 6" lift anyways so they wouldn't be an option. And it wasn't bad advice, it just wasn't applicable!
