Hey thanks. The front definitely sat higher after the level then the whole truck sat higher after the bigger tires. I did not lift the back and I don't plan too. This is now plenty high for what Iwant to do. GGoodluck with yours.

All the work was done by Sorat Wheels and Tires in North Vancouver, BC, Canada. Have to give these guys a big shout out for some amazing work. In addition to the level and wheels/tires, they cutout the horrible crushed y-pipe and crushed straight pipe that runs under the oil pan and replaced it with a Magnaflow Y and stainless mandrel bent pipe where required when they installed the Magnaflow 18" muffler and massive Magnaflow SS tail pipe. This rig now roars to life when I get on it and produces a nice deep rumble at cruising speed. This exhaust along with my S&B CAI seems to give me better response although I don't have any data to back up that claim.

All in all, I am very happy with the work done by Sorat so far and I will be going back to them for more work down the line. In fact I will be going in next Friday for my tonneau cover and possibly a Daiblo DCX 1000 if they can find one for the 2013 model. It would be nice to tune the truck to get the most out of all the bolt-ons.

Anyway, enjoy the pics, I just had to gloat a bit. I really do like my new truck and what a great bloody forum to show it off on.
Gloating is definitely encouraged! Enjoying the pics and really diggin' on those wheels! Nice looking truck, Rumble!

The front seemed to settle after a couple weeks and it has been level now since then. also, it handles better than it used to even with the bigger, meatier tires. I think the shocks helped with that and the bigger tires make it feel more like a truck but still very responsive and manoeuvrable.

Good to know, i'm hunting in a couple weeks and I may need to gloat about where I was able to go with the truck and what I brought out.

Hey I was just in Whistler for beer fest. It was the first time I took the truck for a long drive on the twisty sea to sky highway after having everything installed. Even with these meaty Duratracs, the truck handled great!

Cool thanks, I just got mine installed, but it appears the lower hock mount was installed upsidown. The shop is going to fix it at the beginning of next week. I think I'll go with the 2.8 as well.
