I ended up picking some flares up to try to keep the crap off the sides of the truck. I got them painted tonight. The paint seems to be a little dark. I guess I'll find out tomorrow in the daylight.

Got the flares on and the match alot better than expected. The only trouble is that it doesn't look like its lifted anymore! I think I need to add some wheel spacers in the rear to fill out the flare a little better

This is nice! So basically it is a 4" lift....question: Did you need to do anything with the shocks? extenders?....And I always wonder if this will stress anything on the front end: Like control arm, bushings, 4x4...anybody know?

Definitely adding this mod on my list. Just the right height I am looking for. Btw, how much did it all cost and was it hard to install?

Truck looks Great!
Nice choice on the color of Truck!

When I get around to my lift, I was thinking of going with Black flares, but Blue looks really good.
Good Stuff

I would not buy the rocky mountains again. The first time around trying to have them balanced, I ended up with anywhere from 6-12 oz of weight on them. I still had a issue with them and have to have them shaved/trued. Now they only need about 4-6 oz of weight but after the money I blew on balancing, I should of bought something a little better. Ive had balancing issues i the past with bigger tires but not like these.

I did not have to extand anything, still running the stock shocks. So far everything seems to be running good. no virbration or wobble issues.

I had under $250 in the lift kits. Tires were the expensive part.
