Body moldings?

The molding strips that are along the doors do they have holes behind them or are they just stuck on there with 2 sided tape? I want to remove these for a smoother look I noticed on later models they dont even have them anymore and like that look better

Dude is that all your lift is is 4.5. Your truck is sweet. I love the silver and black look! All you need is smoked cab lights and it would be set!

Thanks, I'm very pleased with how it turned out. Its a 4.5" DR lift plus 1" TEI spacers on the front for a total of 5.5". Then the rear is 5" DR springs plus 1" blocks. So I guess you could say basically its a 6" lift. I was tired of seeing chrome wheels. Every truck in my area looks the same with all the chrome wheels, so I went black. Getting ready to pull the chrome bumpers and grill off and put ones that are color matched to the truck.

Will look good when you are done! I am lookin at those same wheels for my truck in the future. You have any front shot pics so i can see how far the tires stick out? What kind of backspacing you got?
