    Bought this vehicle used in June of 2016 with roughly 55k miles on it. Since then, I've been adding more and more stuff. You start off thinking you'd never get that for your truck because you're not that dedicated and then a couple months later... well... the rest is history. :thumbsup:

    Hands down best company I’ve worked with! Hence the reason why I have your pro grille, ditch lights, bed stiffeners, and of course a couple patches and stickers. Looking forward to continue to buy through Caliraised!

    Busy weekend between wheeling and installs. Installed a @DECKEDUSA system! Loving it so far, just have to get rid of the extra stuff I don’t need and organize it better!

    Finally finished the bed storage situation. Mounted up the 60” hi lift jack and redid the shovel/axe mount. Extended the coupler from my ARB compressor (bottom left) and extended the bedside plug (bottom right). Loving how it turned out!

    Got the Kings 2.5 extended travel coilovers and rear shocks, Darkar HD leafpack, and new brake lines installed today!!! Didn’t get to take good photos with the wheels off due to the snow storm that’s decided to spend a night in town.

    However, the ride- freakin amazing. I am super impressed and I fell in love with my truck all over again. Highly recommend these to anyone. Super excited to get wheelin in this new lift :yay:

    Looks sick, I'm down in littleton and am looking to install most of the same setup you just took off for this and been asking around to anyone i see with similar setups, Bilstein 5100's with 887's, how much difference would you say the ride is and imcurious what was the main reason for switching it up? Also im not looking to run armor or much extra weight similar to yours too, just Hooke road roof rack and fiberglass bed cap. Ive got AAL's for now but will upgrad to full leaf pack down the road

    The ride with the Bilsteins 5100, 2887 Springs, and a AAL wasn't bad at all for day to day driving back in Virginia on the roads. The ride even when wheeling wasn't too bad after all too. However, upon moving to Colorado, and hitting some serious trails almost every weekend, I noticed that my ride quality on and off road could improve. The previous setup, even when aired down to 18-20psi was a little rough when going through wash board roads, hitting bumps/ rocks at speed, etc. If you took the trails slow, you'd be fine. However, one day, I was like, damn... I could be getting a lot better ride if I changed up my lift setup. I wanted a lift that is has serious performance on and off the road and that's what the Kings gave me.

    Overall, I'd rate the previous set up as a 4-4.5/10 and the Kings as a 9.5/10. With the previous lift, speed bumps, pot holes, etc made the truck have a violent thud versus now, I can't even feel going over speed bumps with the Kings. If you're doing some little off roading, nothing too serious, and don't mind having the truck behave and drive like a truck, it's a fine lift- a lot better than a spacer lift. However, if you want something that's more comfortable and makes the ride a hell of a lot better, I'd recommend something more- like a Toytec boss kit or something of that nature.

    Nice!! yeah I figure this is a somewhat temporary setup for the moment, ill see how I like it and if I start to get into some heavier wheeling and whatnot then ill definitely have to make an upgrade. Thanks for the input!

    Awesome! One more note- I'd recommend removing your sway bar if you get into more wheelin :thumbsup: You'll get some nice body roll with the 887s around corners, so take it slow, however, with the King's I barely get any roll anymore

    Niice yes ive heard alot of ppl recommend etiher the delete or the relocate kit, I still do a good amt of highway driving so ill prob grab the relocate kit so it doesnt hit the springs and consider how much of a hassle it is to remove before wheeling or just get used to the roll
