    Love it, I have the same truck. How many inches of lift up front did you set the Kings? Also, is the rear end stock besides the fox shocks?

    Thanks everyone.

    @0311K1LL
    The Kings gave roughly an inch of lift . It sets the front of the truck perfectly level with the rear. The Kings are set exactly how they came from King. I did not adjust the preload. They have the ability to go much higher.

    Other than the fox shocks, the rear is stock.

    The truck rides great!

    Yeah I just bought 5100s and will be setting them to .85 to just level it out straight across. Post pics when you get the 265s! I'm going the same route.
