    Anybody running this setup? Asking because I'm wondering if I lifted the truck just 1.75", would my stock size tires look too small? I have 265/65/17 BFG Long Trail T/A with only about 13,000 on them so new tires is most likely out of the question. Thanks

    yeah that looks good man, especially with the duratracs, but I guess I'm more specifically looking for someone with 265/65/17s and the billies at 1.75".

    I lowered to .85, nose was too high when I towed. Plus, even when not towing, the hood scoop made it look a bit nose high

    Bump. I'd really love to see more pics with stock size tires still on the truck. And "SlurpeeBlueMetallic" do you have any pics of your truck with the billys installed at 1.75"? Actually, now that I look at the pic more, is that pic of the .85" setting or 1.75"? It looks like 1.75" to me, and is that with an AAL too?

    The pic above is at 1.75" with TSB rear springs. When measuring the truck sat dead level... I think it'
    s the hood scoop that makes it look slightly nose high. Either way, as soon as I put more than groceries in the back, the rear would dip a bit and I'd look like I was dragging ass.

    I really like your set up a lot. Your truck looks sick. I have a daystar 2.5 in the front on mine and a 2 inch block in the rear. Do you think it will look good with 285/70r17 Km2s even though my front sits lower?
