If you want to go from an 03 grill to an 04, you will need to get an 04 hood. The 03 grill is flat across the top but the 04 grill goes upwards and the 04 hood has the cut out for it.

Sure thing! As far as the leveling kit goes, I assume you mean torsion keys. The folks on here say that torsion keys are a waste of money because they do the exact same thing as cranking your torsion bars, and cranking your torsion bars is free! I don't know how to link it to you but there is a thread about maximum tire size floating around somewhere that you can check out!

----------

I just looked at the picture you posted, disregard what I said about torsion bars, I assumed you had them and I assumed wrong. You have coil springs so you can do spacers or spindles!

Bumpers are interchangeable just get the brackets from the new bumper. 04 grille will not work with 03 hood as stated above. And if you crank the t-bars you can fit 32's no bigger

Dis regard the t-bar part.

Please post what year and model your truck is
