Default Finally Found Time!

So I've had some accessories etc. sitting in the shop & FINALLY managed to find a weekend to start putting things together, SO happy!

Been planning on having the truck linexed for some time now, but couldn't decide if I should go black or orange, I think black was the right choice.

I removed both bumpers & had them sprayed 100% inside & out. It was a little bit of a pain getting all the trim pieces to fit back on nice, but worth it. Sprayed the truck from the body line down & around the wheel well creases, & ended up doing the nerf bars as well.

There's a 6" BDS lift, a HELLBENTSTEEL 2" front spacer kit, & a set of 35" Trail Grapplers mounted on 18" RBP 93R's sitting in the shop that I'll hopefully be able to put in this weekend. I've been chomping at the bit for 2 months now to get this done & it's finally coming together WOOT! I picked up some EGR bolt on fender flares too, but after taking off the OEM flares I'm not sure if I wanna put them on or not? Guess it'll depend on what the new boots do & how much they stick out, but I was really surprised how good it looked with them off...

Looking great!! Can't wait to see this when it is done.

Are the spacers preload spacers?

very sharp looking. i have been anxious to do this too because my painted front bumper is getting chopped to bits with road debris and such. the cost has been holding me back though.

i notice the gap where the front fender flare mounts....

also interested in seeing the final product with the lift! wondering what to do with my trx4 as well

Looks awesome. I'm looking at bed lining my whole truck when I get back from Afghanistan.

The spacers aren't preloads. I have about 3 1/2" of rake( doesn't show in these pics with the tires & rims in the box), so it's kind of a guessing game as to what I'm gonna need in the end to make it level..

The gap in the linex at the front is the bumper cover. I left it clean because I think I'm gonna linex the bumper cover & grill in orange. The EGR flares I have cover that area too, so they'll tie it in anyways( IF they go on lol).

I seen an International MXT that was 100% linexed black on the exterior, it looked amazing!

My truck had the same amount of rake to it.What lift did you get 6" front and 5" rear or 3" rear.I hope you got the 3" rear with that much rake.I put 1" revtek spacers after I put the 6' BDS lift on it.The spacers raised it 2".It is still 2" difference.I am waitng on the 8" long arm kit to come out from BDS.It will be out in spring for our 1500's.If your going to put a leveling kit on top of the BDS kit I wouldn't.I would put preload spacers on it instead.
