I think youve got a good start. It just all depends what you actually want to do with your truck. What type of trailer are you towing for your bikes? If its a bigger trailer, I wouldnt lift it anymore than 4". Then again, thats just me. I know tons of guys who tow 45' toyhaulers with 6" lifts on their trucks.

Anyways, I think your truck looks good, and the X looks good as well. Ive got a soft spot for those excursions! Dont worry, we wont "rag" you here. Not too bad anyways.

:bowfast: thank you. i was thinking of 37s with a 6" lift, my trailer is only a 17 footer. does anyone have any info on a 2011 conversion for the front end? i saw a guy on youtube with an EX that did the conversion.

If you're not doing any off roading, definitely ditch the Bubba lip.
hey man i live in FL, there's always some dumbass stuck at the beach, in a ditch when it rains, or the last place in the world that you would say "wtf":doh: so i plan to be that cool cat that happens along(for 25 bucks of course) unless its a chick LOL

Poke around on here and you'll run across it, I know there was a guy that had an 08 dually that did an 11 front end on it. But keep in mind, the bed line on the 11s is different than our trucks. Not the entire line, but where the wheel is. So if you do the front end, you almost need to do the bed to make it look right IMO.

Sounds like a plan. Although I haven't met a stuck truck yet that I couldn't pull out with a quick tug.
