    nothing, all stock expect got a OE replacement air filter K&N.
    i just recently lifted my truck up but not satisfy with the rear lift.
    i know i should have maybe gotten something higher but i chose to have the 5 leaf pact from wheelers with the stock height hd greasable kit. now i want a little bit higher too

    i have the 5100s set at 0 with ome 881s giving a 2.5 on front cause my truck is a 4 banger.

    i don't want to buy a new leaf pack because i'm low on funds now. so im thinking about getting the toytec 1'' shackle to give it a little boost from the rear. or get the 1.5" aal? whats better to go with that will last longer. what do you guys think? go or no go?

    edit: mod, please correct my mistake: from all to AAL, mistypo.

    I haven't read much about Shackles but i do know it's not good idea to tow anything big if you have lift Shackles from what Ive read.

    The shackle would be your best bet. Does the truck sit level right now?

    So is a myth about the towing thing with lift Shackles?

    i was thinking of that too, but i figured i don't know if it load heavy stuffs on. the rear sits a little lower than the front.

    3" lift Up front(Donahoe Racing ext. travel coil overs, Camburg UCA's), 1.5-2" lift in the back(aal and some billy 10" stroke short bodies), Bushwhacker Cut-Out fender flairs, 16"x10" Procomp Street locks, and 305/70 Procomp X-Terrains.
    If you tow alot I would get some aals, but if you go offroading alot, I would go with shackles. The aals will make the ride alot stiffer when there is no wight in the back.
