    Here is a picture of my truck, it's a little old but should give you an idea of what it looks like. Allied Spindles up front with about 2.5inches of lift out of my 5100 coilovers. The rear was a 1/2'' lower at the time of the picture and I was using an AAL that gave me about 2 inches of lift.

    I like how it rides. It was a bit firm when I had the 5100's up too high but since then I have adjusted them down a little and it rides great. It doesn't see much offroading but for the times that it did, the front did a lot better than the rear. I ended up adding the donahoe resi shocks in the rear and now it soaks up the big bumps a lot better.
