Everything but the HID headlamps came in. I went ahead and ordered a pair of smoked LED tail lights and a smoked LED third brake light. Pics soon, hopefully...

Update:
The truck got out of paint yesterday and should be back in my possession by next weekend! All of the parts came in, including the new LED tails, LED 3rd brake light and HID headlamps, so...aside from spending next weekend with Lishy (her birthday is Monday, the 12th), I'll be in the shop, tearing the truck back apart and installing all the new stuff, then tons of pics next weekend (with the camera that i got for Lishy as an early birthday present =P)

Very awesome! Much better than when it was covered in black plastic bits.
But you say you want a 3" drop on the back only? That seems like it'd end up looking extremely lopsided. I'd say go about 4" down all around. But whatever floats your boat.

Leveling kit, not really a drop kit.

Ohhhhh, right. I thought that was under the pending mods section. My bad. Well, I can only imagine it looks far better this way.
