Looks Awesome ! Great job.

These trucks need a little rake. They seem to sit either too level or little nose up from the factory.

I wrapped up the drop on my 2012 Crew Cab yesterday afternoon.. Will start a new thread regarding.. I am sitting about a 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch higher than yours. Love it !

Did you cut the 2" and 4" spring or the stock 13 springs, and how much did you end up cutting off--# of coils or inches. How far out is the rear with the stock track bar?
I forsee cutting my 2-4 springs soon

I put 2" drop spindles in the front and 2" drop coils from mcgaughys but I not thinking cut a half coil off my 2" drop coils (working late at night) when I shouldnt have in truth I didnt need to cut my front coils.. The rear is just the 4" coils with 4 coils cut the 2012 I noticed a little difference in the placement of the axle side to side but the 2013 its hardly noticeable not sure what the difference is but I had a rambox on the 2012...

You cut 4 coils out of a 4" drop spring?! My front is the same height but my rear is still 4" drop, too much rake but man 4 coils is a lot, even w helper bags to carry the load I pull w boats.

Its not as much as it sounds I cut the top part of the spring that sits coil on coil when the spring is compressed.
