you plan on painting the hood to match? or maybe paint the tan to black and leave the hood? That would look badass I think

I ordered the DJM 2" springs and 5" flip kit from summit for 160 bucks. I have some drop shackles I am going to use to raise the rear up. Didn't see the point in spending 50 bucks on theirs when I had some. I will be using my stock shocks for a short time then upgraded to some drop shocks. I also plan on running a 255/50 series tire. Not wanting to go super low at this point on the truck. This is a budget build and spending 700-800 on suspension just didn't make sense right now. Should be here on monday and sometime next week it'll get installed along with new rear wheel cylinders and shoes. Should get the mach 1's on next week too.

This truck has the stand I am looking for right now.

Dropped, tune up and fresh rear axle seals/brakes. Also need new leaf springs. Mine are sagging and one is missing a leaf.
