Default Re: Hello

Not sure on pricing, my truck has torsion bar front suspension, so I just just "cranked" them up for more lift. That was a free adjustment, only needed to get the alignment re-set.
If your truck has this set up its an easy adjustment, basically jack up the truck and turn the adjustment bolts.
If you have coil springs, most people seem to go with the spindle lift for the front and add a leaf in the rear. But a body lift is also another option. Just not sure what pricing would be.
You can check out the suspension section or try the "search tab" for info on body and suspension lifts.

Hi Steve, not sure how your thread posted into this thread but possibly could need a tune up ?

A good complete set will run you around $80. I also recommend a retro fitted headlight. This will make it so its not blinding to on coming drivers. And look good.

They are easy to install. If you need help there is videos on youtube.

Heres a list of the colors.

That list isnt to accurate. I would go with 35w 6000k bi xenons

----------

I would also check out the headlight mod.
Headlight Mod for 2001-2010

Maybe even upgrade the audio system.

I understand you want people's opinions, but first, take some time and check out build threads on other peoples trucks. There has to be another truck almost identical to yours with some mods done to it that you can get some ideas from. Just take a look around the site. Welcome and good luck with your build!
