Better idea of actual ride height & primer Fenders back on

I was concerned about my ride height but with a 16 gallon tank & gas@ 8lbs per gallon, I think it will be where I want, I also just got the fenders primed and re- mounted. Man these things are a money pit!! Need to start engine, wiring, weather stripping, wiring, seat, gauges, steering wheel, side glass, back glass, interior etc. etc. etc.

This may be a longer term project that I planned on.

The longer term happens. Just keep tackling things one at a time.

You ended up with good ride height. Love the smooth back end look you did. Very nice.

Ha ha. What works for me is coming up with a schedule and budget for each section. If you add it all up all at once ( time and money ) it can get you down. Your truck looks good. Keep at er. Ride height looks perfect to me.

Personally I like the stance you've achieved, it looks good with those wheels. As for the money pit part, LOL yeah I hear you, but at least for me the journey has been worth every penny. It's been very therapeutic, enjoyable, and I keep coming up with other things to improve, redo, or add, it's never ending, and I don't want it to be done. PS, your truck is coming along really nice so hang in the, like emay said "just keep tackling things one at a time" it will be worth it.
