Yeah, as stated before, the hard part is done. For the rear, all you have to get is a flip kit perch and flip the axle on top of the leaf springs. It should only take you like 2 hours.

So, I'm thinking of applying sound damping on the interior of my truck. It's so loud when driving down the road. I know there is some that was applied to the truck from factory, but I was wondering if any of my followers have done it with fatmat, hushmat, dynamat, etc.?
