Thanks to all who have gladly assisted and answered my stupid questions as i have gotten comfy with the 4th Gen platform. i am LOVING my truck and really starting to see the final masterpiece in my head now with some solid progress made. i have a baby (Little girl) on the way, so i am trying to fast track the MAJOR things in the transformation now while I can.

That's a great deal on the wheels, you can't buy the tires for that much.

For the steps, I would consider Bestop powerboards. They drop down lower than any other step and will be much safer for your prego wife to climb on. The N-Fab style steps don't give you much of a step and can be slick when wet. The powerboards will also be nice when you start having to load the car seat in the truck.

Congrats on the baby! I've got a prego wife due in July...

Nice looking truck!
I will be doing the Bilsteins/wheels/ tires thing too within a few weeks.

Also congrats on the impending new addition to your family.
My son (John Dodge Hoffman) was born on Thursday.

Your TRX is a 2WD correct? Explain what you did to level it.... please!

Never mind....duh.... I can see in the pic that it is NOT 4WD! Sorry man! Looks great so far!

I have the same truck as you, except 2WD. I recently added black headlights. It makes a world of difference in the looks.

COngrats on the New addition and upcoming July Baby! Our lil minion is due March 31.

Ill look into the Drop Bars.

Do you have any pics? Seeing you have the identical truck, it will help me visualize it better. I am debating BLACK vs. smoked lenses ONLY because with the silver two-tone, Im thinking the smokes lenses will balance out better than blacked out.
