    I can hardly contain myself. I feel like a little kid...pics to come!:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    Yea, I thought about doing them myself, but then talked myself out of it, since I dont want to learn on my DD.

    Yea, the tires are the next thing. Im leaning towards goodyear duratracks. Im unsure about 285 vs. 265 current. I have a long commute to do away with gas mileage too much.
    After much consideration, Im setting them at 2.5 and the 2" AALs in the back. I realize that I will need new UCAs at some point, which I will get down the road a little.
    The best part about all of this, is the 4x4 shop is right by my office, and I can see my truck up on the lift from far away. This makes the anticipation that much worse!!

    I'm also running the Goodyear Duratrac's in a 265/75/R16. So far this winter they have been excellant in the ice/snow. I would had liked to jumped on up to the 285's but didn't have the extra cash for new UCA's at the time.

    Yea, Ive been waiting patiently for them to pull it out of the bay. Pretty cool that a prominent 4x4 shop (in business for over 30 years) is right by my office. I visit and look all the time, but this is the first business Ive done with them.

    At what height on the 5100s adjustability range are new UCAs recommended?

    Oh okay cool. Yeah i think it took around 7-8 hours for all my stuff to get installed but that was for 5100's all around, 885's up front, 2" rear AAL, TC UCAs, new wheels and tires balanced and mounted, alignment, and proper trimming up front so I wouldnt rub. So yours should be good to go by the time your off work.;)

    Yea, I think they said 3 hours for the install of everything. Then time for an allignment. Im hoping by 2-3 so I could just accidentially not come back when I picked up my truck.

    Once you get to 2-3 in of lift they are recommended...you just might have a little wander in your steering wheel.

    I've got the stock UCAs and it seems to drive fine, but I do have a vibe..

    I'd be more worried about having a vibe if your just getting it done, it will look sweet but do I have a vibe. Mine showed up like 2 months later...
