I really like the change to LED for the signal lights and tail lights.

What radio is that? I've been thinking of adding a VHF/UHF radio because of all the radio controlled roads.

I like the bed set up! The Quick Fist clamps are awesome, I love mine.

It's a CO2 tank for airing up my tires and running tools if required. Will also reseat a bead on a tire.

Nice build man! Really like how organized the bed is....jealous. I just put everything in a cargo bin and slide it under the tonneau with old straps and hope no one looks under there haha your idea/ set up looks much nicer!

Sorry everyone, I haven't been on here in a bit. The printout from the alignment was all in the green. I may take it back in to a different place though as I am not totally happy with how the alignment went. I think the dealer I went to may have just checked it out and saw it was in the green and left it. I want it adjusted to as close to factory as I can get it.

probably won't have any issues depending on how high the level is. You may want to get an adjustable track bar to perfectly centre your axle again (for sure have an alignment) I highly doubt you'll have any issues with steering or front driveshaft vibes etc especially on yours that's a cad front axle on your 15' right? Just have to know that your changing some stuff in your geometry. I'd imagine honestly though just your track bar angles may be off a smigen. Might make the truck wonder more on the highway or a bit more bump steer but maybe not even noticeable to you!

Can you give us more info on the antenna? I'm going to mount a HAM radio in my truck in the near future, still researching radios and antenna choices.
