Ok guys here are a few pics. Have my designated winter tires and rims on now.

Only have about 250 lbs in the bed now...also pulled around my trailer with ATV loaded tongue heavy (on purpose) during the deer hunt to squat the rear a bit.

Well this pretty much convinced me to go with the dakars in the rear. How does it ride with the AAL? I do a lot of camping/fishing in the summer and tend to pack way too much stuff so I would like the extra capacity as long as it isn't a terrible ride.

Oh and what size are those winter tires of yours?

Ride is comfortable given that it is a reg cab 4 banger(light truck)

I do load the truck often and took advice from TW member "Box Rocket" (smart guy!) to put in the AAL...he also told me to put 881s instead of my intended 880s...sure glad I listened to him!!

Ride is a bit choppy in the rear without any load at this point...but I do have my Tundra for longer trips!

Tires are 265 70 R16(stock size) Pirelli Scorpion Ice/Snow >>>not my choice but were brand new put on the day I got her at the dealer last Sept...they are great on ice though!!

cool, thanks. Mines a DC with a shell, so I think i could handle the rougher ride. It is a truck afterall. And the tires don't look too terribly small with the lift. That's what I would be running in the winter as well, so just wondering. I was thinking of going 5100's all the way around with eibachs up front though.
