    Decision, decisions:confused:. I've got a pair of Wheeler's 1.5 AAL and can't decide if I want to install them or not. So what do you think? Currently I'm running eibach 1.6 and fatbobsgarage .5 spacer in the front and TSB only rear w/ 265/75's. I just don't want to much rake. Thanks TW.

    I think if you aren't going to do a lot of towing, it looks perfect! I like it.

    I have the Wheelers 1.5" AAL on my 1st generation and it came out way more at first but settled in.

    Unfortunately, a lift is like "boat syndrome" for me. Always want bigger.(Keep your heads outta the gutter:D)

    That does look like a lot of rake. Might just be the angle.

    Yeah thats on uneven ground, In that pic if you looked at the passenger side it is completely level. Plus that was right after the install, so the rear hasn't settled. Right after Install I had about 3+" of lift in the rear.

    So After they settle and I get my tires/wheels I will be taking some more pics.
