Talking New Drop and New Grill! Check it out!

Ok guys today was one LONG project! Took me from 12pm to 9pm lol. *first time dropping with control arms*

Ok well I drop the front of my truck with 3" DJM drop control arms "powder coated red" with Belltech Nitro Drop 2 shocks. I replaced balljoints, bushings, and sway bar endlinks and swaybar bushings. Also the grille inserts i got are from AllThingsEnd on the forum. I think they are from customecargrills.com or something like that lol. Well here it is.

ps. I know my bumper is still sagging I will fix it soon. Also I am gonna drop the rear soon too. Soon to be a 3/4 drop. And I am also gonna try to buy smaller tires soon. If any of ya have any ideas on what would be a good size of tires for my 18's that would be great!

I will take better pictures tomarow when the truck is clean and better light lol.

Thanks for looking!

Look'in good and taking shape with the front drop. Once the rear is all done you'll be happening. Just an observation but from the before pic your truck looked pretty level.
