I have the same exact truck but it is still completely stock. I absolutely love the look of your truck. Is it lifted? I want mine to look as good as possible without having to lift it. Any suggestions?

Just got some new shoes for the truck, went with a little less aggressive tire for better DD feel..... so if someone is looking for some new 265/75/16 tires let me know!

I was skeptical about the 4" lift with the maxtrac but your ride looks great. did you do the icons in the rear or the front? how does it ride? stiffer or like factory?

Thanks for the compliment, I have the icons in the front and the rear with the front preload as low as possible for no lift from the coils just the spindles and the 1.5" ad a leaf in the rear and the truck drives great on and off the road
