    Leveling kit is fine for 1.5”. You will need to trim and chop to get 33’s in. Most do a 2” lift either bilsteins or ome for around 1300$. After that price is your limit. A full lift i feal is best bet over leveling kit for an extra 500$ or so

    I borrowed them from a buddy. Apparently they're just OEM spare tire wheels. I liked the way they looked so much I wanted wheels that looks some what similar, without going for the mickey-thompson style look.

    What I have on now. Need some 35"s now though lol.

    I did not need uca’s with a 1.75” front level on my 15’ sport. I absolutely needed them with my 3” on my 16’. I tried to do without but steering was sketchy

    I'm with the stay stock height but upgrade crowd. I went with Kings 265 kbro2s and new wheels. You get like 95+% of the performance of the 3" 285 setup at half the cost and minus all the issues you have to deal with when going up and fitting 285s.

    Did you have to replace the UCA's with that?

    That's exactly what I did. I got a level kit from @HeadStrong Off-Road. It added about an inch to the front and it is almost level with the back, looks great. I obviously needed an alignment, but it feels exactly the same.

    I have to say, I like the way those steelies look also. In fact, on a Quicksand Taco, they would look way better than my factory rims.

    Nope. It was at about 1.5" initially now it's a little over 2". No vibes so far *knock on wood*.

    Also determine how much you actually wheel as the cheaper bilstein 6112/5160 with new wheels and tires still runs around $4k after installation.

    Any modifications or trimming necessary for fitment? It looks real good with that setup
