    Westin bullguard, Steelcraft 3" Nerfbars, Bilstein 5100s all around -front set at 2.5", toytec 2" AAL, Wickedflow muffler, 265/70/17 Destination ATs.
    I put 5100s and a 2" AAL on Saturday with a buddy of mine. I definitely couldn't have done it without his jack/air ratchet - but I would recommend anybody with the proper tools doing it themselves. It was a lot easier getting the front shocks in/out after detaching the sway bar. It took 6 hours but an hour of that was redoing an AAL after we realized it had been installed backwards :rolleyes:. We had already cut down the centering pin so it took some finesse.

    The bilsteins are set at 2.5" and the ride is SO much better. My rear suspension had definitely hit the bump-stops, which is ridiculous as I can't recall ever carrying a heavy load in my truck. I have 265/70/17 Destination ATs on and I really like the look. There was no problem getting them aligned and there is no rubbing at all. I also had my Wickedflow muffler installed this morning (18SC250). I love the sound and I'm glad I didn't get the shorter muffler, its pretty loud as it is.

    I'm super happy/impressed with how everything turned out. Thanks so much for the help everyone. I came into this forum knowing NOTHING about trucks. Changing my own oil was intimidating and look at me now, I can't wait to try everything.

    Now I just need to find some freakin' trails near Omaha. A back road would suffice, I'm desperate. I moved from Phoenix to here and had no idea there were places without anywhere to drive my truck.

    nice looking truck man!
    I know how you feel about not knowing about trucks. I still don't know anything =/
    But I was wondering about your lift.. all you got were the 5100s and the AAL?

    The tires are bigger and a little more aggressive looking than stock. Other than that its just 5100s and the AAL.

    Are you having any issues with vibrations at all at the moment? how many miles have you put on since installing the lift?
