      Sand bags in the bed? Ok, you known I'm kiddin'.

      It actually looks much like mine did after the addition of a front spacer lift. Sitting a touch high in the nose.

      I ordered a 2.5 inch leveling kit, which for some reason jacked the front of my truck about 3" over stock.

      This resulted in the "what's in your bed" look... which was not what I was shooting fo. Add the Kawaski Brute Force ATV or trailer with a couple tons of coal and you were looking more at the sky than the road.

      SoOOOoo... I had the TSB rear springs installed on my 08 DCLB, which came with just 3 leafs. That really helped to level it out nicely. BUT, 2 weeks later the new rear springs settled and I was back to being about 3/4 inch low in the rear.

      My quick fix was to add a 1 inch block lift to the back, which sets the rear just about .25 inch above the front. Looks real good and works well for what I do with it.

      Now my stock 265's look small. I do like the wheels you chose... FJ? Are they the stock size rubber or up a few?

      Thanks for your comments. Yep, FJ wheels with 265/75/16 BFG AT's. Its about an inch higher in the front. I like it a little higher in the front, but I have also been concidering pushing for the leaf spring TSB. After hearing that the springs settle I might go for it. It does ride like crap with a load in the bed. Thanks!
