    Thanks, So far I am loving it. The ride is so much better than stock and I can't tell much if any power loss with the tires so far but I'll give that a few more days.
    Feels nice to be driving a lifted rig again.

    The cv's are a little more of an angle than I would ideally like but I'm sure with a diff drop, boot slide mod and the addition of an ifs skid, front bumper and winch they will be just fine. I don't have any weird vibrations so I can live with it.

    WOW! That looks a lot different than an little while ago. Looks great man, really does.

    Nice choice on the tire too, how are they riding for you and how have they been in the snow?

    That little bit of snow in his pictures... That's all we have gotten. It lasted that night and then was gone.

    Thanks man, I guess it is totally different then when you seen it. I believe all I had were sliders at the time. So far I really like the tires but as Marc said snow has been non-existent this winter.

    Well there an Alcan 9 pack and are decently tall. I am actually contemplating taking out a leaf or 2. As far as squatting goes I haven't hauled much of anything since I had them on but I have had 4 255/85 KM2's, my old leaf springs and a heavy skid plate in the bed and they did not squat at all. I really like the ride they offer and they flex really well. So far I am very happy with them.

    What did they run you? I am planning for a future replacement pack for when my wheelers one dies. I don't think they will last long with some of the weight ill be hauling around eventually

    Well I found them for sale on Craigslist so I didnt pay retail. Email them at billford@alcanspring.com for a pricing quote. They build all leaf packs to your specs.

    Thanks man. Actually it is just a factory bed liner. I may get a line-x spray in bed liner this summer.
