    just like stock :) the above coil spacer doesn't effect ride height at all. if you plan to wheel it though, you'll eventually break your shock, as they bottom out before hitting the bump stops, due to being longer.

    If you dont mind me asking, and if you remember, do you know what color is on the grille? I like the looks of it and i want to get rid of my flat black surround.

    it was chrome, and I lightly sanded it down to give it a brushed aluminum look.

    any reason you opted for a spacer lift over 5100's/eibachs this time around?
    New ride looks sweet by the way.

    thanks man!

    Only reason is the cost, I haven't wheeled my truck much at all since I got it, and for that reason, the spacer lift worked great!

    now that it's not a brand new truck, I'm looking into getting a complete ome lift with dakar leafs, I'll also upgrade to 285 duratracs shortly too I think, then I can get to wheeling!

    Great truck and thanks for the video of the exhaust differences...it's definitely making me consider one of those now! lol Now that you've had it for a little while, how has the sound been inside of the cabin (especially on the freeway)?

    I'll definitely report back on how the OME goes!

    Thanks bassman!

    There is absolutely no drone on the highway, it's PERFECT! I don't notice it's on there unless I listen for it, and it sounds great!

    haven't posted here in a while.

    Today I ordered 10'' 5125's for me and my buddy (rawdog) I also got a smittybilt 2780 compressor.

    change of plans, 5125's don't come with the proper mounting, so we'll be getting extended 5100's. can anyone recommend a longer fairly cheap bumpstop?
