I was looking at the first pic and the comparable bottom picture.
It appears there isn't much detectable difference in height. Do you have actual measurement numbers for the height?

Nice, that looks good. So all you did was put 5100s all the way around, w/ the front ones at 1.75" eh? I haven't done TSB either so I may go this route.

yes I put 5100 all the way around, and the front @ 1.75, The access cab 4 x 4 sit lower in front than the double cabs. I was going back and fourth with the .85 setting and the 1.75, it rides great I think

That's one thing I forgot to do before: measure. I did 5100's @ 2.5" and 1.5" AAL and now I have no clue what the actual height increase was, lol. Looks great now, though.

Looks good to me, I think you have to lift it a considerable amount to really notice it right off. I'm at 2.5" from the 5100s and I cant really tell the difference in height (lookwise).

That works, often the angle of the pics and quality can make it tough to see the difference. Good job, I'm planning on doing the same next week.
I also agree with the above post, time to swap out the tires for improved look.

I'm sorry but I really cant see a difference from those shots. But cool beans on the 5100's! I put 5100's all around with OME 885's up front.

How much did it lift the front overall with the 885's? Im lookin to go bigger later on down the road, just trying to stay away from the front diff issues ppl seem to have on here.

everyone needs to look at the space between the fender and the tire... I can tell the difference, and I bet it would look way different then my stocker parked side by side.

I plan on doing this when im ready for wheels and tires... Im glad to see it turn out well.

i can see a difference too, plus the angles of the pictures (especially the before) are kind of awkward. the after pics the truck looks like its leaning towards the camera a bit (making it look lower) plus the pic is taken standing up higher than the truck (while the before pic is just the opposite), which doesnt give us that flat/level side profile pic. taking a picture of something from a lower angle is going to make it look bigger, and a higher angle smaller. i think thats why a lot are saying there looks to be no difference
