Default insomnia+mods=very tired!

So for some reason I couldn't sleep last night and I still haven't yet. So at about 6am I decide I needed to do something to get me tired enough to sleep. So I finally finished installing the 06 mirrors and also installed all of my pioneer door speakers. Sucked because it was 80 degrees with about 80% humidity. By the time I was done I felt like I just got done running 10 miles I was sweating so bad lol.

Also a funny note about the 98. I had installed the 2/3 drop on it and needed to get new springs for it. So I bought some replacement springs from jcwhitney. Well even with the flip kit my rear was lifted with the new springs to a little higher then stock! lol. My belltech shocks are maxed right now. So I bought some 3" drop blocks I am going to install soon. Should get started on the rest of the front drop soon too.

Pics
Here you can see what it looked like with the old springs

you would need a powerdome from 01-03. The 04 plus hoods are not really powerdomes, as all 04+ trucks come with them, and if you got one from an 04+ the gap between the hood and grill would be about 1", 1" 1/2...


looking good otherwise

Yes they will. I put some powered 06's on my 04. Wiring is the same, but the wire colors are different.

I think they said it was a 01, but they come off 01-03's.

Not doing black anything lol. Hood will eventually get painted red and I am not sure what I am doing with the tan yet.

I'm going to stick with the 98, but go with a 01+ bumper. I have a paintable grille and hope for it to look like this when painted. Just with the 01+ bumper and powerdome. I'm kinda wanting to put a flareside on it, but they are hard to find.
