With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Looks good! What is your back sitting at now? I am going to lift the front of mine and just trying to get an idea of how it's going to sit. I am around 37 inch's from the ground to my fender at the back.

Thanks for the pictures. I am interested because you have the same truck as me only mine is an 09 and Barc Red rather than Rad Red. I am getting the TSB done tomorrow and am adding the 5100's on all corners soon after. I plan to set the fronts to 1.75" as well.

Only difference is the bed cap you have. That has to weight it down a bit...right? So my rear will be a tad more than your 1/4" difference - giving me more rake. I've considered going up to 2.5 in the front but still want the forward rake.

So much to consider...maybe I'll spend another day at the office thinking about it

If i were you I would use the third setting! Yours should be a little higher than mine, the topper is a couple hundred pounds. The ride is awesome!

Nice pics. I have almost the same setup 2.5" and AAL 1.5" rear. Sonny and Jon mentioned that it should level out when the AAL breaks-in. Check my gallery for pics.

ILooks good, I like the back sitting a little higher. Is that the TSB with an AAL? How are you at the back with it??
