    Anyone running 1" rear blocks along with the OME 2" AAL? I have the 2" AAL installed but it has settled about an inch since install so truck sits level, want a little bit of rake so plan on adding the 1" block from toytec, any issues with doing this?

    I was wondering the same thing. I'm sure you can, just need to get longer U-bolts. We will see what people have to say.:D

    wat?
    i had a 2" block w/ tsb springs on the 07 and as long as u have longer u-bolts thats the first step, but getting over 2" of lift in the back u'll need longer shocks to keep from topping them out...that or shock extenders

    Engage Offroad long travel front and rear with some fat tires.
    if you combine the two for a 3" lift in rear, you may need 4.5" to 5" up front to level the truck out...

    unless you are trying to get the drag racer look...

    someone one here had an issue of combined lifts and his truck looks crazy...
