    I've already tried searching this and various other ways but cant find pics of a truck with this setup. I'd like to either see your pics or a link to your build thread.

    I have a Readylift kit and I'm nose high and it's starting to piss me off, so this is my planned lift now. I have had the rear spring TSB done and I just dont want a lot of lift.

    I like a real mild lift and slightly bigger tires the best, thats why i prefer this setup. Thanks

    I've got the setup you want, except I have 18" wheels. Same lift, tire width and tire diameter though. Just a bigger hole in the tire ;). Check my build thread.

    heres one Let me know if you want different angles. Sorry kinda dirty. Sits a little different on flat ground, the driveway is more of a hill than it looks in the pic. Also about 600 lbs. of tools in box and bed.

    your truck will sit level at 1.75" and rear TSB . If you set at 2.5 " you should add another 1.5" TSB Toytec .
