Spring cleaning! turned the truck about three times,and this is the best light i could get for the pics. Maybe i'll do a night shoot at work under one of the big lights since im doing a few overnights.

I believe it is the front coil springs. And the rear leafs net around 1.5-2" of drop aswell.

Is it just the picture or does it have a little rake? Oh and I think if you ptmed the rear bumper, badges and tailgate handle it would look really good

It looks to have an inch of rake, but in person everything finally settled and looks level. I'll have to do some measuring and see. As for the ptm. The truck is gettin shaved this fall, along with a roll pan. Not sure if i will keep my door handles or not. I probably will. Unless i suicide the drivers door. Then i'll be taking another 2 inches of height from it in 2013 if i go that far body wise.

x2.. I also think if you tint your tails to match the shade of your truck it'd look sweet too

Just the drivers door. Mines a 97. And 97-98 had three doors. Not the 4 doors the 99+ have.

I want to get a light tint done. I may even have my painter hit them with PTM tint. But plan on having some OEM tails LED reto-fitted first.
