Got my lift installed today!

Sierra Expeditions did the install and I couldn't be happier. I was very impressed with their price for the install and their customer service. I sourced the parts from various vendors but they did the install.

Bilstein 5100's all around, OME 8500's, ICON AAL. Rides great and I think it looks great.

They're the MB Motorsports with Hankook Dynapros that were listed in the AZ classifieds a couple weeks ago.

I'll be listing the stock wheels, tires, and suspension in the classifieds soon.

$80/hr - They charged me for two hours plus a $15 shop fee.

I bought the shocks from Down South Motorsports for $310 shipped. The ICON AAL from SDHQ (PM them for TW member pricing). And the OME 8500's from Sierra Expeditions for $180. So all in I was just shy of $900 including install plus $50 for an alignment at Big O.

Correct. Super nice guys down there! Initially they were just going to rebuild the struts for me with the springs I bought from them and my supplied Bilsteins. But I asked how much to just install the whole thing and I couldn't turn down the price!

265/75/16 and the 5100's are at .85 I think.

Avid light bar and I painted the grill with Fusion black satin paint.

Looks Sweet! How much lift did it end up giving you? Any need for new UCA's or any other add-ons?

I didn't take any "before" measurements so I'm not sure how much lift I got but the general consensus is 3" with he 885's and Billsteins set at .85. From what I understand UCA's are recommended with a 3" lift. I'll probably get them eventually but it did align ok so I'm not too concerned with it.
