Wow just read through this thread. Big fan of the truck and all the modifications.

I had the same problem deciding on wheels and cast vs forged haha. Really glad I went with the Vulcans

yeah I need to bite the bullet and do the front and rear differentials on my power wagon too. Thanks for the reminder. Especially if the previous owner actual used the truck for it's actual intention. Your truck is coming out pretty nice I must say.

Yeah it's getting there Haha.

Cant seem to catch a break with this weather. It gets nice then goes back to 40 degrees and rain.

Still waiting on the switchbacks. They were apparently backordered even though they showed in stock when I ordered them. TRS claims they will ship next week. I guess I'll see.

Still need to get the paint anyway. Going to have a local body shop mix me up some.

Then once I can finally get a solid weekend of good weather I'll be pulling the bed and doing some frame cleaning and painting.

Looks great man. Love this truck. Looked to get this a few years back but couldn’t swing it at the time. Can’t wait to see the add on coming.

How has the level that you did been holding up? has the ride suffered? I have the kryptonites in the cart ready to do it. :)

The ride honestly is not bad at all. Normal roads it drives like it did before. Over really rough terrain like a washed out road or something you can tell it's not that great. But other than that it's about the same as stock. Bilsteins arent too bad. Definitely could be way better though.

I did notice with the wider tires the steering likes to follow paths in the road and I have a little more bump steer. I ordered a steering stabilizer. Should be here next week. Luckily the 2015s still have the mount already there for it.

nice feed back! thank you. I will probably do the same, crank the keys a little and put the kryptonites on. Once the alignment shops are back in "normal" business, I'll do it all and get it aligned. jeezzz, then I will "have" to get new tires... LOL.

looking forward to the mirrors.

Yeah my stock keys got me plenty of adjustment so I didnt bother with the hassle of swapping them out. I dont think the stock keys would make it past where I am though. Would probably be about maxed out on the bolts. I have the heavier front bars due to the plow prep package so that may or may not make a difference

But yeah I'm happy with it. Need a diff drop for sure. But I have a lift planned in the future so I know this is just temporary really.

I have not coated it at all yet. It has a few spots out back that the wax peeled off. So I'll be cleaning those up and then painting the whole thing like I did to my 17.
