What's the difference between the two struts beside one is from a 4x4. Asking cause I'm looking for something close to that. Now I have a just stock 2wd but I want the lift.

The 4wd one is longer. If you look closely I put a tape measure to show the difference.

Ok I saw the tape, just wanting to make sure I wasn't missing something else. Looks like close to 2" diff., good and I might go the same route. Thanks for info.

No problem. Keep in mind if you go my route you'll need to lift the rear too. Good luck!

Here are a few pics from today's snow. This is the most snow I've ever seen (I'm from further south than TN originally.)

What size tire are you running. Would love to see snow like that but not in my part of Texas. Truck looks great.

how are you not grinding the steering stop when you make turns and hit a bump? i went with 4x4 bilsteins set @ 1.75" and i rub there due to the excess length of the coilover. it seems that 4x4 + 2.5 spacer would be way to tall to stuff in there...

just asking! nice truck btw
