    found my way over from TW. Had a DCLB and needed more truck. From Austin and happy to find the site.

    Here's a pic from day 1. I've done a little dipping and debadging since then. My plan was to color match the grill, etc. but the chrome is kinda growing on me so I may just do the mirrors and line-x the steps.

    No huge plans (yet...) other than new tires and a shell. Lift/level is tempting but I'm trying to avoid temptation.

    Installed some leashes, too.

    Thanks!

    The only reason I'm on the fence about lifting it is because it's already hard enough for the old dog to get in and out as it is. Another 3" and I'll be lifting her, too!

    Everyone who suggests a lift from now on is getting their name put on a list so my wife can attack in the proper direction when it comes up!

    wifey reminded me that we have a dog ramp in the attic because the old old dog needed it. I'm not sure she realizes the implications....
