Idk if its just me but alot of newer trucks seem to ride low. I kinda like the older style that seem to have better ground clearance. You know what i mean?

one because there is nothing on the back and also because the newer ones do sit lower I plan to get timbrens and crank the t-bars some to get it a little higher

Yeah I am hoping with timbrens and cranking the t-bars the plow/mount will be ok but the 03 definitely has a nicer stance currently

Congrats on the new truck, it looks great. I cranked the t bars on a friends 08 Chevy dump and it looked alot better. Between that and timbrens it should look alot better. Maybe some beefier tires down the road. I'd recommend having it realigned after you adjust the torsion bars. Good luck and have fun with it.

Something a little different that i normally don't do but one of my good customers asked me so I did. Sealed their small commercial parking lot. He wanted it done by hand he said he had it done in the past and didn't like when they sprayed it so 3 guys and a hard days labor we did it.

looks good! I was debating whether or not to get into seal coating or fertilizing as something different but I think i am going to go with fertilizing

Seal coating is easy work. Pour the can, spread it, and keep going.
