Thanks dieselmike1!

Sorry, but I haven't checked in a couple weeks. I'll have to try those photos again.

Incidentally, the "MINIMAX" is a decal (not an emblem)......but that would be cool.

You can see in this pic that spacers are desperately needed. A set(2")should be here tomorrow or the next day

R.I.P My favorite truck of all time: '07 LBZ, CC, Lb, 4wd, lifted with 35's, 13.7 in the 1/4. Damage courtesy of a drunk driver that hit it while parked on my street

FastKevin, What lift did you install and how much lift is it? The truck looks great!

I went with the Zone 5.5". Zone and BDS are sister companies owned by Fox, but the BDS lift doesn't fit the diesel.Rough Country also makes a 6" lift, but while everybody I know that has it loves it, Rough Country just isn't for me.
The Zone fits really well, and the geometry is so good on it, the alignment came out even better than stock.
BDS had Fox make them 'extendo' coil-overs, which will work on the front in place of the lift struts. IIRC, they're fully adjustable(compression and rebound) but don't cost any more than the regular Fox coil-overs($1800).
The truck rides like stock on the street, but I've noticed the stock struts are a little too soft off-road, so somewhere down the line I might go with a set of coil overs.

I don't expect to do much with the truck with extras. Just planning on leveling the front, spray in bed liner and nice topper like a Leer. Just going to be my daily driver. It's got the power to haul my loader tractor or dump trailer if my old 97 F150 is out of action. I'm liking that I'm already at 25-27mpg average with only 200 miles on the truck.
