I figured somebody on here might. :D
I really would like some details on the interior setup - and the satellite on top. Can it do live broadcasts? It looked like a complete broadcast/editing house on wheels.
Crank the torsion bars up in the front (Should get you 2"), or go with a set of Ford green torsion keys (Should get you 3") if he's unable to get the amount of lift he wants (Is this a 1/2 or 3/4 ton Silverado?). Blocks in the back.

Here's some inspiration for you... not my truck. :)
I do have a 2003 2500HD extended cab and I'm basically in the same boat as you. My wife drives the truck and she hates the look of camper shells so I'm actually having custom bed rails and a rack system built by a friend who has a welding...

My brunton spork ($9 REI), white box alcohol stove and wind shield ($20 whiteboxstoves.com) fit inside my gsi...

Great site, very...
