    I installed my lift today. Just curious what everone thinks. I know it will look a lot better once I get some bigger tires but it is a major improvement from stock.

    I like the way it looks with the tires you have. How much lift is that?

    The CO's I got said they were set to give 2" of lift from the factory and I did not adjust them at all, I just put them on. To me it looks more like 3" though. I didn't measure before the lift so I'm not sure.

    yeah, that looks like its set at 3". I know when I got mine that they were set way too high, and had to crank them down atleast an inch. But no harm done!
    what is your measurement from ground to fender? just curious...

    Good Job and great looking! I think it would look a little better with bigger tires but it doesnt look all that bad from the side.

    I'll probably go with the 285 but I would really like a 305/70/16. I have a friend of mine that works for a wheel and tire shop so I'll probably get one mounted to see how it fits. I really like the Hankook Dyna Pro MT's.

    Ya I got an alignment today and the truck drives a lot better with the new suspension without vibration or any problems. I don't see the need for UCA's because the truck drives fine right now but that may change once I get bigger tires. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.
