That's atually my company truck, but the roller is made by highway products.
I think the boss said it was 1500-2000$ all aluminum, I love it especially for Pails of oil

RJJP is starting off with a positive reputation.
You wouldn't have any pics of them lights before you removed the green film, would you?

i tried these ones first but they had a narrow beam angle so didnt really work worth a damn. the normal bulbs have a much greater angle

Well got my new to my truck leafs in. They aren't arched as much as the stock ones so I didn't think I was going to gain any height but I gained 1/2" at The wheel wells and 3/4" at the hitch.

Look like im going o be lookin for a set of 2 possibly 3" blocks for the rear to go with the 2" front spacers.

Also thinking about a 3" body lift. Haw hard are they to install?
What's a average time to install a full kit?
I am a millwright with a full shop of tools at my disposal even forklift if needed.

I'll post some pics when I get to a computer, can't on the iPhone

3" blocks are $60 here in town and then just ned ubolts. Probably around 50 for those so $110 ish for the rear 3"

And was $80 for the 2" front.

$200 isn't bad for a 2-3"lift lol

A few pics. I changed the leafs and gave it a bath today.

The taller spring is the one I took out...


Got the new to me springs in and emptied a can of black paint lol


Here's the broken leaf


4 leaf springs hitch to floor


5 leaf hitch to floor


Stock height


Front lifted 2" with jack and rear lifted 3" with forklift. I think this is the stance im going to go with.

A few pics cleaned up






Anyone have any suggestions for what to use to polish these rims up? This is the shiniest I have had them yet. When I get the new tires I want to polish them up


And finaly my industrial "jack" and saftey stops when I did the leafs since my little floor jask wouldn't reach the grams let alone lift the wheels off the ground by the frame.


Ok one more, my current exhaust
