Great stance, and the lip looks good too. I used something called the EZ Lip, its just stick on rubber except its made specifically for cars. Yours is a great alternative though (and $10 cheaper haha)

Just did 4 lock actuators on a 2008 Denali truck. The first one started failing @ 38k miles Lol I feel your pain on taking apart the door, though. Nice start man

Thanks guys! Sway bar links are still stock. Should I change them?

I've seen the ez lip on sc before and was gonna try it but wanted something that looked more oem. Also the material used on the paver edging is plastic/abs so it feels oem
