    Awesome looking truck, man. How hard was it to install the front lift after you had the coils mounted? Any issues? I'm looking to do the same lift but might have to stick with 5100s and stock coils for a few months until I get a few more bucks.

    I love the looks of the tires too. I'll have to consider them when upgrading mine.

    Thanks.

    It wasn't too bad. We did the front right first. And we couldn't get the lower arm to drop enough to line the bottom holes up. After a lot of attempts we finally were able to tap the bottom bolt through. But the left side we did in about 10 min.

    I like the lift it gave me. The ride so far seems better. I'm content.

    Be sure to order your billy's from DSM if your buying new. Great customer service.

    The tires are good. People say they are loud but I don't think so. The shop ended up installing 3 sets of duratracs in one day. That should tell you something. Lol great ratings.

    Nice Ruben! Wheels and tires look great.
    I'm pretty sure you will rub full lock/compression. Swing by and I can show you on my truck what I had to do to keep from rubbing (mostly) when wheeling.

    Yea. I can do that. I ended up going with the 285's and the guy told me it wasn't rubbing. But when I made a sharp left turn I rubbed on (what looks like the frame.)

    Don't expect a response from Alvin. He only comes on TW once every 3 weeks or so. At his current post rate he will hit 300 posts by this time next year.

    I don't think Alvin has a build, it's one of those trucks you just have to see in person. :rolleyes:

    Sorry no build page. I know there are some floating around in the Norcal section somewhere. You can see it in the Norcal section banner, silver 1st gen far left. LOL! I just realized that banner page hasn't changed for like 1.5 years now. LOL!!!
