Where were you when I was looking for a 8 ft box?! lol no its no biggie, If I want something rust free from down south I prefer oem body parts because these aftermarket ones can be made with flimsy steel, but I have all the body parts I need. Thanks anyway tho,

also, you should think of selling rust parts up here. A decent rust free box can go for upwards of 2 grand and usually sell quick.!

8" suspension 2" body lift, 10" lift total. Im looking at getting some 37" tires used because all the money was spent on the lift.



Got the hard and soft brake lines replaced front-to-back on the truck as well as the wheel cylinders

Flex hoses from the 8" lift





Dont mind the rust





Brand new poly hard brake lines





All this wasn't a walk in the park. Wagner wheel cylinders ordered from Rockauto were faulty on arrival. BOTH leaked like crazy.
