    Looks like a nice truck!! Congradulations!! What are you planning on doing with it? P/S is a great upgrade as well as lockers if you go offroad. I would go with a 4" lift even though you only really need a 2 1/2" for the 33's if they are not too wide. You may want more in the future and they are about the same price. Disks are a great upgrade and a good first start. Good choice. You will really appreciate not having to adjust the drums regularly. Are you in a club? Do you wheel alone. Maybe a wench would add security. How far do you want to go. Good Luck and Have Fun...

    Very clean truck to start! I notice its a desert rig. By the way, a "wench" does not give ANY security!

    I can't believe how clean that looks. Are you in Arizona or Nevada? Keep the pics coming.
