Need some opinions - will this setup look good?

ok, so here's my ride as it sits right now:



I'm hopefully getting the AAL TSB done this weekend, so that will raise the rear end about 1-1.5 inches from what i've read.

I'd like to eventually put on some 265x70x17 BFG AT's and lift up the front with Billies set to 1.75".
Does anyone else have this setup already? If so I'd love to see it.

Another question... with the rear TSB, is it worth it to spend the extra $$ to have 5100's put on the rear as well?

That's the look i'm going for, did you have to put in UCA's with the 2.5" in the front?

Yes do the 5100's all around.
For comparison:
I ended up going with the TSB plus aal at rear for 2.5" lift.
I put OME 885 Springs on the front 5100's (set at zero) for 2.5" lift there.
Still has about 1" rake, but that is OK - my loads level it out.
Oh, and I also have the 265x70x17 BFG AT's.
Good luck!

i guess what i'm looking for is mainly regarding the rear end.. is the factory AAL TSB sufficient for what i'm looking for? will there be a huge difference between the stock aal tsb and that plus billies? rougher ride? smoother ride?

Nope, just stock coils with 5100s set at 2.5 and an alignment. I've gone through some hairy stuff and its been great.

Honestly, i put on my AAL and a set of 5100s for the rear and didnt notice any rough ride at all. Just taller and stronger.

I did the stock tsb and added billies initially, so did not experience the stock tsb and the stock shocks.

The ride was firmer, as I expected. It was not a rough ride.

Those tires look about right.. looks like all out stock otherwise. the rear shocks look like the stock sport billies.. not a bad look overall though. Not sure if i should put on the billies first, then the tires, or the other way around. Either way, i've got a while for the tread on my stock tires to die

I thought about that.. just blacking out the stock rims, but I don't really want it to look cheap, ya know? if i'm rolling in dough, maybe i'll upgrade the rims later.. but i'm okay with stock chromers for now
