    The only mod is a hole in my wallet!!!!!
    I'm going with the same front set up as you but can't decide on a 1.5" aal or 2" aal. I also have LR UCA's that I'm going to run. Can't wait to get around to putting my stuff on. I want to go down to a 16" rim with 265/75/16 tires. Trying to hold out til I get the rims and tires to install all at once.

    are you planning on running 265 or 285 tires?

    Install your lift and if the cv joints are at a steep angle you need the diff drop

    I'm gonna run 265 tires bc I want to keep the stock rims. I'm gonna go with the lr Ucas as well. I heard that the 1.5 icoon actually gives you 2 inches of lift. An I have also read that the leaf packs are a substantially better ride than the 2inch AAL. Still worrying about the differential drop.

    I also sent back my 5100 shocks for the rear bc I read with a 2inch lift in the rear that u can overextend and blow your shock out. So I went with the longer billies, I think they are 5125s.

    Here's Eibachs on 5100's at 0 and the Icon 3-leaf AAL on the rear:
    [​IMG]

    You can get 2" out of the Icon 3-leaf AAL if you leave the factory overload leaf in place. If you remove the overload leaf like they tell you to in the instructions, you'll only get the 1.5" of lift like they advertise.

    I'm not running a diff drop or aftermarket UCA's but you're talking about going higher in the front than I did.

    Are you level or sitting nose high. Looks like nose high by the picture, but it could be the driveway also.

    Partially the driveway, but my measurements from hub to fender are exactly the same all 4 wheels. However, I personally like the look of these trucks when they have 1/2-1" of rake, so I am currently working on finding a simple and cheap:rolleyes: way of getting that much rear lift

    Only pic I have right now. Billies @ .85", Eibachs, 1/2" driver side & 1/4" passenger side spacers, and Toytec 1.5" AAl

    [​IMG]

    I plan to get the icon or wheeler's aal and keep the over load leaves for a 2" lift in the back.

    Thanks for the pics guys, it helped me make a few decisions. I def think Im gonna go with the 1/2 inch spacer on the driver side and the 1/4 on the passenger side. Gonna order some light racing ucas and a differential drop kit and ill post pics as soon as i get it all together. Im not gonna put anything on until i get it all, that way i can knock it all out at once. Besides im waiting for DSM to exchange and ship my billie 5100s for the 5125s anyways. Can you guys think of anything im missing? i wanna do everything i can to keep things from breaking. My goal is to have a smooth running reliable lifted truck.
    :yay:
