Default Stx to lariat, time to start over!

I traded my regular cab short wheelbase stx in on a screw lariat, and it's time to start over. From 5.0 to Eco I can notice a power difference, and fuel mileage difference. It was hard to trade her in, but I needed the space of a screw. Sure does feel weird riding in a bone stock vehicle... For now. Window tint, leveling kit, and 295/70r18 toyo open country mt's coming today.

The mods look great, what are the specifics on the leveling kit and installation?

Default I like them both.

Man I really like that stx gave me some ideals on what to do to mine next. But I also like your new truck to. I can understand the space issue also. But we already own a crew cab so I just wanted something to pull my trailers with for our landscaping business that I could get turned around in tight spots lol. But both are nice. Good luck with the mods.

The leveling kit is a daystar 2" kit, a good friend of mine owns a tire/light mechanics shop, so I got them to install it and get my tires/install them too. He said it took their main mechanic 45 minutes to install the kit. But I have a few more mods that will slowly come, a black low profile toolbox, a ranch hand full bumper replacement, tow mirrors, and a go light for sure.
