881's are the the same height as the 883's. FYI so they wouldn't give you more lift. Might handle more weight better but no more lift.

883s are the way to go granted if you going to add anything later.
This was my rationale- I wont be getting a plate bumper for at least a few years...unless somebody hits me again

Up front I'm at 2.25, but plan on settling that .25-ish down to 2".

Rides so nice, I'm not upset. I didn't want to get new reinforced cv's yet, or have to worry about their angles too bad. I'll try to get some shots of it today, including cv angles. Diff drop is going in on saturday no matter what though.

Well technically the 883s would give you more lift, because they don't sag to the lower level that the 881s will...

Since they are stiffer, they stay higher- might not settle as low as the 881s, and handle weight better and not settle as low. Hence- moar lift

Not trying to tell you 883 are the wrong choice. Just pointing out the specs. Without question if you plan on adding a bunch of weight to the front of the truck the 883 are the way to go. Personally I prefer similar lift height but a softer ride so I went with the 882s which IS the only way to go.

I really like the way they handle- and if/when I do add the extra weight, I'll adjust my coils accordingly. It will be years before I get my bumper/winch combo probably, so I figured do what's best for the time being, and fix it later if need be. Coils are only $160, but need to assemble them myself in the future- which won't be too big of a deal.

EDIT: Also- coil rates are a whole different ballgame when it comes to extended cabs vs double cabs

From what I've heard and researched it's not too hard. But would always like experience on my team. We're going to do it next Saturday morning at my spot in Long Beach, if you're interested. PM me for more details. Going to be putting cbassd's lca skid plates on, and my aals too. If you want to wrench on your truck too, I'm game.

Thanks guys...I know..I know, the pics are out of this world...and I'm sure everybody cares about my truck..

Oh wait.. my build is boring haha

Someday I'll make some money to make it interesting

After I pay off a little bit of debt, next on my list are cb setup, rock lights, and behind the grill lights.

The following big ticket items are leafs & skids. The last two things on my list are either a bedrack with rtt or topper with racks.

Ordered CB setup just now!

The CB I ended up with is the Midland 1001LWX 40 Channel with ANL, RF Gain, PA and Weather Scan.

Ordered the Cobra HG S500 Highgear CB Speaker too.

Firestick II 4ft Tunable Tip Antenna

Last thing I ordered today was my 18' Coax Cable.

Only things remaining to order are my mount to put it in the gap on driver side of hood, and a quick release- along with a spring.

Stoked

For sure, I was somewhat undecided on placement when I ordered. I figured if I put mine right behind the cab, or on the rear bumper, I'd get less of a signal- as opposed to up on the hood somewhere.

I'm slightly concerned that the antenna floppin around on the hood will annoy me though...
