That looks good with the 275 tires I thought they would look to small. I have to get my Bilsteins on they've sitting in my shed for a month.

Truck looks good brother!. That's the same setup I just ordered. I'm setting my 5100's at 2.8 though with a .75 rear spacer. Haven't decided on tires yet

Hey man. Sorry to bother you but I noticed you had lamin x light film on your tail lights. Do you think you could snap a shop of the edges of them for me? I installed them on my truck but they don't seem to fit good. I can see red around the outside edges of the lights. If it's easier you can just email them to me at cybersnyper00@aol.com. Probably easier then posting em or whatever. I'll show you my lights if you want. They are pretty poor fitting. Just want to see if this is it or maybe mine were cut wrong.

Thanks


Had a pm typed out to ya but I can't send it I guess till my post count goes up.

I have installed both a 2013 and a 2014 leveling kit and the job is not at all difficult. If you have a buddy, then figure 2-3 hours tops with basic hand tools, a good jack and tall jack stands.

Make sure you support the lower A-arm before busting loose the ball joints so the drive shafts stay put. They probably won't come out of the diff but you don't want that to happen. A rubber hammer is about worthless to knock the ball joint loose so give her a good whack with a metal hammer, same goes for the steering joint. If the instruction say you don't need to bust loose the steering joint, do it anyway or it will be a wrestling match with the strut assy.

I can tell you that for some reason, the 2014 was "tighter" than the 2013. I installed a 2.5" on my 2013 and it popped right in. I installed a 2" on a 2014 and it was more difficult. It was as if the A-arm would not move as much or the tolerances were tighter. It was not hard but took some real muscle and finesse with a pry bar. In the end, it was a 2 1/2 hour job anyway.
