    So after the snow melted, I finally got out to do a half-ass clean up in the slush/water. Pics include new Cooper Discoverer S/T 265/75/16s with Bilstein 5100s up front set at 1" setting. I love the new tires and the Bilstein's are major upgrade from the stock Billies.

    I am happy with the upgrades, but I want to take it to the next level so to speak. I want to add a little more overall "lift" look. Keep in mind, I rarely off-road (3x a year I take it to my father in-laws cabin) but want a "tougher" look. FYI, already have decided to take the brush guard off & I have 2-60 lb bags of sand in the bed of the truck.

    Your suggestions are welcomed! :)

    Get some new wheels. 16"X8" with 3.5" backspace will make it look tougher. To me tires that don't stick out past the fender are very boring/old man-ish.

    Do you have your front billies set at 2.5." If so, how is the rake with the 1.5" AAL and the billies @ 2.5" from front to back?

    Thanks! :)

    i have that same set up, my rear sits slightly higher than the front. it's not too bad but i think i'm going to add a 1/2 inch to the front
