    Check out my build:)
    Xrunner coils will work
    You could buy spacer kit for about 1-1.5 inch drop in front and buy 2 inch blocks out back this would be the cheapest
    Or you could purchase xii 1.7 inch drop coil for the front which will stiffin the ride a little more

    More expensive route is djm 3/4 or 3/3 kit

    Upgrading gears is a must for those tires

    I have 255/50/19 which is same height you planning to run on stock gears haha I'm stretching them for days when I shift haha would be even worse if u had an automatic

    But I'm downsizing anyways to stock height tires since I'm lowering my truck

    Well the height im dropping now way my current tires would fit so stock height tires will be needed
    Even if I were lowering it only a little I wouldn't.personally run as big as a tire I have but somewhere in the middle between the stock size and what I have
    I hate the fact of how much wheel gap came on the 2nd gens:p
    There's two solutions:
    1. Small drop tall tires
    2. Slammed till fender meets the tire haha
