    Finally got around to getting her lifted. I need to dig around to see if I can find any before pics. Unfortunately, no build pics as I forgot my cam at home.

    Lift items:
    Icon coils in the front
    Bilstein 5100s + Wheeler's AAL in the rear
    285/75/16 BFG ATs
    Procomp 8069s 16''

    Ordered everything from Wheelers offroad over the phone. Jason at wheelers was extremely helpful, and they got the parts shipped out and to me within the week.

    Process was pretty simple. Made some dumb mistakes along the way, like putting the AALs on backwords (short end facing aft). We started at 9pm, ended up finishing around 3am.

    All-in-all, pretty happy with the final result. Had to trim to alleviate some rubbing issues w/ the 285s. The ride is a little rough, but that was expected. Was also able to get it aligned with the stock UCAs.

    Future plans:
    sliders, bumper and trail armor
    custom bed box (for my rifles and recovery gear)
    UCAs (maybe)

    Took her on a road trip to Colorado, Utah and Arizona a few days after putting the lift on.

    More to come...

    Thanks bro. The wheels were kind of a pain to get to fit, had to grind a mm or so off the front calipers.

    Got everything squared away and realized that I forgot to put the center caps on. Oops. Probably just wait until the first tire rotation to throw 'em on.

    heh, finally got the build page up.. i'll get some more pics up eventually. Speaking of which, I'm digging your interior setup.

    We should head out east one of these weekends, do some wheeling and shooting. Let me know..

    That looks great! BTW, what are you using to hold those bikes in place and how is it attached?

    Ah shoot, I almost forgot about the kiddos! Your girl is due this month, isnt she?

    I'm out of town the next two weekends, but after that, whenever you've got some time, we should head out.

    Definetly man! She's about to pop anyday now so we'll see. I changed my mind though, your truck looks like shit. You should probably just trade me your wheels and suspension and start fresh; that way you'll have an awesome build page. I'm willing to make that sacrifice...
