    Deckplate,5100's,eibach's,Wheelers AAL,
    here is a picture of my truck in installed the 5100's at 2.5 and 5100's in the rear with a 1.5" wheelers aal. The 5100's in the front on my truck did give me 2.5" .
    And they are the stock tires which look pretty stupid now.

    for the rear i got the hellcreek suspension leaf packs which gave me about 1.5 in plus it brought my payload up to a half ton (trust me i've loaded the thing with tools, and a job trailer) i think i paid like $360 for both sides together plus they warranty their springs. check them out, i was really impressed, plus if you're going to get the billys order them through downsouth motorsports, an if you say you're a member on here you get a discount.

    Just a piece of advice if you go the shackle route... unless you go with a shackle that is ridiculous, you don't have to cut the exhaust. Some people have done this and it isn't necessary imo. The leafs will in fact be in the way, but you can cut a small notch in the hangar and drop the hanger down so the the top hanger hole is lined up with the bottom hole of the frame... see pic. The exhuast now clears the leaf spring (not buy much... but it didn't clear it by much before).
