I agree. I'm gonna be getting a 2.5 inch front level and 3 inch rear block here in a couple weeks. If worse comes to worse I can always put them back on

Which kit are you going with? Not concerned with too much rake with the 3"? I'm thinking about either just a 2" front or a 2.5/2" rear

how did the bilstiens help out the rear? they were tons better for the front. been wanting to put some on the back as well. did you do adjustable up front?

Yeah I also like the no steps. The steps look really good compared to most truck makers, but at 6'2", I don't really have a need for them.

Going with a 2.5 front spacer and 3" rear block. Auto spring kit. Getting from member justjimmy on here. I'll be getting a trailer soon and I haul a lot in my bed seeing as how I landscape on the side

Yea I have the adjustable a set at .75. I've had them on since I lifted. I have a minor uca rub at full droop. They perform pretty well. I was surprised how the truck handled with some aggressive speed/driving on the trails. It didn't soak up the big hits for obvious limitations but overall they perform well.
