Big 3 of course, stock alt.

the mcguaghy lift and toyo mt's are expensive, but the right way to go i hear. good to invest money into the long term when it comes to suspension lol i bet you had some issues with rubbing though with that offset. unfortunately our GM's come with fancy square wheel wells.

Actually no rubbing at all!
The only time I have rubbed is when I'm out in the mud, and I hit a big hole, if my wheels are turned they do hit a bit, but not enough to notice. Thanks yeah I figured the mcgaughys have been making lowering kits since the late 80's, so they have alotta R&D in GM trucks, so figured I couldn't go wrong. They actually drop the entire suspension 7.5", not a 5" like the RCX kits I see. I can actually turn my struts up, to get to 9" of lift, and add a leaf in the back to clear 37's but I like the straight cv angles and the cheaper, and less weight 35's. Thanks man. She's my dream truck. Not sure what to do for the mids tho.

depends on what size, how many, if you'll be adding some sort of digital sound processing, running active, budget, goal of sq/spl etc.

Well, I want to keep my factory touchscreen, I was planning on adding a processer, and just removing the line out converter I currently ran to get some bass. Wanting to stick with DD they are local to oklahoma, and I wanna keep it that way with them.
I was considering swapping my 6x9's in my front doors with 6.5 mid bass drivers, doing the same in the rear and tweets in the front. Amps will have to be mounted behind the back seat. Thinking 50-75rms on the mids per speaker.. somethin like that.
