    Need some feedback please. This is how my truck sits now, was wondering if should take off 1 1/2" aal and replace with 2" aal.
    What do you all think about the rims also. All feedback good or bad is welcome
    thanks;)

    i think it looks good how it sits, if you do the two inch it might be slightly higher in the back.

    I like it how it is, it's clean.

    I know you want suspension comments, butttt...I'd ditch the bug deflector and get a new exhaust lol

    Depends on what look you're going for....

    Do you want the truck to look leveled out, or higher in the rear?

    IMO the additional 1/2" won't really make that much of a difference.

    the rear will sag over time, trust me... go ahead and bump up an extra 1/2 inch now, you'll be glad you did later.
