Again...WOW. That is exactly what I'm shooting for. Don't get me wrong; I love the 6" lift kit too, but my wife and my garage have put a strict height limit on my truck. I take what I can get (and still park inside at night). Maybe in the future...

It occurs to me that I'd need some offset wheels for those tires of yours to fit my truck, looks like that will be a future investment.
I don't think the air dams have changed... mine probably just looks smaller because of the height of the truck. I know when mine was at stock height it definitely looked a lot bigger since the truck was so much lower to the ground.

To be honest I like the stock 17" wheels a lot, but wouldn't be opposed to getting some with 12mm offset like yours (I'm assuming then I could do the 35" by 12" tires with just the 2.5" leveling kit then).

Yes, as gonefishin said I mean wheel spacers. In order to clear that width of tire you either need aftermarket rims with a 0 or negative offset or wheel spacers which essentially give you a more negative offset. The stock wheels are +19mm offset. You need at least +12mm to clear a 12.5" wide tire but a +6 or 0 would be better. I chose a 20x9 -12 offset because I wanted a bit of a wider stance. Keep in mind offsets are different for different rim widths. The numbers I am throwing out there apply to a 9" wide rim.

Most shops in my area are typically charging around $140 for an alignment. But that's in Canada.... From what I've seen guys in the states are typically spending around $100 or so...
