5100 @ 2.5" w/ 2" AAL and Pics

I ordered 5100's front and rear from Wheelers last week with the 2" AAL. Started working on it in my garage last night and finished this afternoon. It was not a fun job in this hot Texas heat but the end result was worth it. I set the 5100 on the top giving 2.5" of lift.

Something to note is that I have the drive line shutter under medium to hard acceleration from a stop and it is now gone>

I measured this evening and it already was dark so I will double check my numbers tomorrow.

Before
LF 20.5 RF 20.5

LR 21 3/4 RR 21 9/16

After
LF 22 7/8 RF 23

LR 23 5/8 23 5/8

I was worried that the lift was going to make the truck drive poorly but actually it drives really well. It also doesn't look as bad as I thought it would with stock wheels and tires. I still need to get an alignment, overall I am var happy with how it turned out.

Damn it! I tried to look at your pics but couldn't see them. I get this alot on here. It just shows a "Red" X where the picture should be. Any suggestions?
