They are the spyder projectors. And tails I'm just running the stockers tinted. But planning on running some led ones sooner or later.

Can you run a leveling kit AND a lift kit at the same time?

Yes depending on the how the lift is setup in the front. For example I have the pro comp suspension that utilizes a strut spacer and preload coil spacers( similar to a leveling kit) if I put a leveling kit on I would remove my coil spacers (do not stack!!!!) also If I went with bilsteins I would remove the coil spacers and go with leveling shocks. Again do not stack.

Now you can add a leveling kit to your lift and many do. However many also have issues. You get added height however put your cv's at extreme angles, (if you do i would suggest kore cv's). I've talked extensively about adding more height on my kit with pro comp and they strongly suggest against adding anything on top of your lift.

It really depends on your differential drop, cv, how much you want to spend now/later. But yes is the answer.

Looks great! Do you have any rake with your bilsteins set at 1.4?

1.25" RCX Body Lift
2.1" Bilstein 5100's
Bilstein Rear shocks
2" Daystar Rear Spacer (Has 2" lowering springs)
Durun Terrain Grapplers in 35x12.5R20 on Stock rims with 1/4" spacer

Minor Rubbing on left tire on full lock. Rubbing is on plastic fender liner so not concerned at all...

After: (40" Front 41" Rear)





Also want to give a shout out to Andrew aka FastNugly for all the help and great prices!! Cheers!

Parked at wallmart yesterday and found dirty dodge chilling so figured it would be a nice shot. Wish mine was that dirty right now

Looks to me like he has a level on it and 33's.
