Nice, I also think a 2/4 is the best drop.

Thanks for all the comments! To answer a few questions...........it took about 5 hours with help from a friend (recommend it plus air tools). We could do it in 4 hours if we had to do it over again. As far as the head lights, they are "HID" kits from eBay. I got them because the OEM lights where terrible!! I didn't get them for the looks but to see better at night driving. I will some day get a real set ofl HID's. Last, I am going to cut 2 inches off the running board brackets to bring it closer to the truck, I like the running boards but there is to much gap between it and the body of the truck.

Took it to a alignment shop and had no issues with getting it aligned.

5 hours... not too bad I suppose.. I am contemplating the drop but I do have plenty of snow in the winter where I live.... The way I see it though is that there is still more clearance than a car
