Das....i was meaning to ask you now that you've had the lift on for a while, how is the ride? Any vibration with that kit?

Hey Das,

Got couple questions if you dont mind. Been looking left and right for a good 3" lift. I like your set up, you have same size wheel set up as me, but I can tell you have a bit more wheel well space.

OK:

1) How is the ride quality?
2) How was the install, any special tools, or basic?
3) Are the rear AAL's 1" or 2"

Thanks a bunch, I think I mite purchase the 3" set w/Diff drop, depending on AAL Height.

The ride quality is still good. It feels a little different, but thats because of the mud tires. At highway speeds, it feels no different than stock. Now that I have been driving the truck like this for a few weeks, I still have no complaints. I've gotten used to it being lifted and it feels like it did before....until I have to jump out of the truck...I'm only 5'6". I was able to install with just hand tools and I used floor jack and a couple of jack stands. I'm pretty sure the rear AALs only lifted the rear 1".
