    @buddy guy looks great, 2” front lift is perfect, money well spent and now you have a shop you trust to do other things down the road. That amount of lift is just right and if you get new tires you could always bump up to 285’s or 295/60’s .

    thank you...and yep. have to admit after reading all the threads about bilsteins possibly being installed incorrectly i was not exactly excited about it this morning, but thanks to info from this forum and screenshots it was the first thing i mentioned when i brought it in. the owner didn't seem familiar with it, but i don't think he was the tech anyway so not a huge deal. the guy standing beside him who i do think was a tech, knew exactly what i was talking about. he brought a strut out, opened the parts bag and showed the owner the issue. that made me feel better..and excited again! very happy my truck looks like a TRUCK. when i change out the tires it will get a bit more beefier yet and i will be done. (hahahaahahaah.."done"..:dogpile:)

    @buddy guy that looks perfect! It really does make a huge difference in how it feels driving and getting in and out of with just a 2in front lift.

    Don't forget to check your headlight aim and adjust as needed too.

    thanks co-pilot. it was money well spent for me. its not always the case. but i like it a bunch. funny how it totally changes the look of the truck for me to mod the stance.

    After over 100,000km on my Goodyear Duratrac tires in 275/65R20, I finally got some new rubber installed. I went with the Bfgoodrich KM3 mud terrains in a 35x12.50R20. My wheels have a 0 offset and have zero issues all around. My bilsteins are set at max up front and I have the 1” longer bilsteins in the back with 1.75” coil spacers.
