bilstein 5100's at 1.75 and 1" rear blocks installed

Just put these on my 2013 4x4 today.
Fronts set at 1.75"
On the rear im using 1" blocks with the stock 4 leaf springs.

Im realy happy with the way it looks.

One day I might go bigger once time comes to buy new tires but thats a long ways away.

The ride feels slightly stiffer in the front end , but not to bad .

Next I have to buy some steps or sliders.

Pics

Looks good. That's what I'm planning on doing myself.

Looks great! This is most likely the same route I'm going to go with my truck as well, i just drive way to much for a big lift and tires.

Very nice look..

Yesterday while heading down to my local 4x4 shop to make plans for upcoming front bumper, winch and skid plates, saw a Ford p/u. Had a transformers hood and sat a good two feet above the axle. Wish i could have had time to take a picture, but to me, looked like a big pile of wasted money. But then, here I am fixing up what is already a good looking truck.

Enjoy your new ride, like your setup

Thanks guys , I've already forgotten how it looked prior .

One question , how critical is it to get alignment done with a small lift like this ?

The truck drive perfectly fine but I don't want to kill my tires . Should I get it done ASAP or is it fine with such a Minnor lift ?

I wouldn't go too long w/o it imo. I just did mine about 3 weeks ago and I didn't get the specs but was out of alignment though.
