BLU, I see your pulled your front mud flaps. Is that because of rubbing from your new tires? What size are they as they look good. Also any alignment issues at 2.5?

well i pulled the mud flaps the day after i got the truck so i dont know about rubbing (but i doubt they would rub) the tires are 265/75/16 procomp xtreme m/t... they are straight up 32''s.. .no rubbing issues, and it def. needed an alignment!

how'd the alignment come out...does it track well now? does it wander as some have said it can wo/aftermarket ucas?

i have 265/75/16's now, so im not concerned about rubbing, just the alignment.

rides great on the road ...a little stiffer but off roading is way better than stock!

nice! any particular place that did the alignment...i.e. firestone, meineke, ntb, etc.

when it comes to vehicles if i cant do it myself i like to have the better of the bunch take care of things for me.

I viewed your photos and your truck looks great. I think I'll do the same.

How much lift did you get when you set it 1.75? Did it really give you 1.75" of lift?

How's the ride compared to the stock shocks?
