I wonder if i can get away with, not taking off my bed like some people have said they did. And the fuel tank it would be nice if it wasnt to tight behind the hanger by the tank, because i dont wanna have to drop the tank if i dont have to. Hopefully going to stop over at my neighbors some time today and seeing if hes got some old chevys

chevy springs are ready....i got the cap off and bed about to come off. then ill be able to take tires off, remove ubolts, drop the axle. and remove the stock leaf springs. hopefully have it done sometime tomorrow lol/

----------

I measured from ground to top of wheel well. my cap lowers my truck almost 2 inchs. so the chevy springs will certainly help with the squatting
