    Yeah, I looked all the wire and have some extras through the firewall already. Been working on getting the trailer plug working. Had to get some fuses, the relay, and a new harness.

    Never enough extra accessories on a truck even with the newest models and their 'upfitter' switches.

    Couple pics of the spring swap. Had to cut off and replace the front bolts.
    If you dont want to cut them, you have to drop th gas tank and the exhaust [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    [QUOTE}New leaf springs. 3+1 to replace the 2+1 that have at least 150k miles on them

    Rear Fenders are roughly 37" off the ground right now. We'll see how much lift these give.[/QUOTE]

    With the new springs installed, and still sitting in the driveway, the drivers side is 39.25" high and the passenger is 40".

    I'm sure they'll settle a little bit, especially once the shell is back on. So I ordered a set of 3" blocks that I'll put on when I level the front.

    The bolt b gone over other tasks most preferred.

    Height no issue, wheel opening front to rear limit now.
