Damn that's a beaut!! Specs on the drop? And what grille? Does it look as good in person? Lol. I've been looking for a mesh or billet grille, but haven't found any that I like in person.

PS - Just being a smart-*** on the opening thread statements about lowered vs. lifted trucks. I agree - to each his own.
I like it also. Not my style but it looks good.
For each their own and different strokes for different folks.

Drop is a 3.5 / 5.5 from Tony (DJM Belltech Direct). The rear is a DJM flip with KW Shocks and Belltech Sway bar. The front are KW Coilovers.

I made the front grilles myself since I couldn't find any I liked. It a thick stainless mesh that I had powder coated black crinkle.
