Welcome from California. Nice truck. Not gonna lie, fix the dent in the door and that paint job looks pretty cool. I'd redo it and maybe change the colors.

Thank you! In 2 weeks I'm starting the body work and doing a 2 tone paint job with new colors.

Hey ccdually, what size tire is on your truck? I have one I want to lower like that but it has 6 BRAND new 235/85/16 Hankooks that I don't want to have to replace. Cool truck.

It currently has 225/75/16 up front and 235/85/16 in the rear. They are tucked in the fender a ways.

Thanks ccdually. Based on pics I have of mine and that pic of yours I'm guessing yours is a 3"/5" drop. Any idea if that's right; or did you purchase the truck like this?

87V20Kansan,
You bet. I just installed the kit in mine about 2 weeks ago. It is 6/8 with the C-Notch in the rear.

I love it. Western Chassis' kit?  I would have a very hard time wanting to paint that thing. It's so retro cool to me I'd probably just live with the dents and paint the hood silver.  ;D

87V20Kansan,

It is the Western Chassis kit. The experience with them was not very good. but the truck does look good with the kit.
As an automotive painter I can appreciate the retro look but it doesnt appeal to me on my personal vehicles. I am going more for the custom look like the pic I have attached. I shaved the drip rails and antenna this weekend and primed the front fenders.
