    The lift made for a huge difference on mine. Totally changed my truck for the better and I love it even it. Your going to like your lift, mine is similar with only 2 differences. Enjoy!

    Did the rear suspension upgrade today. Single Deaver AAL on each side gave me about +2 inches. Whole thing took probably close to 4 hours with the help of my dad. Super happy with the outcome, front being done in a week. B17199B9-91F4-46D2-AE1D-A017DB340A57.jpg1A5784A6-DF44-4484-9D83-3BCD6B57981B.jpgA0783C4A-5D87-4BEB-BA18-E115986E4442.jpg
