Looks real good
Can't wait to see more pics even more so when 37's and coilovers are installed.

Great idea on the Zone lift and Fox coilover option from the BDS

Looks awesome! Well done!

What coils did you go with in the back? My guess is the 5"...

3" coils in the back. I'm still thinking of removing the flares....don't know why but I am thinking it would look better.

Really? I'm surprised. There seems to be a bit of rake (which is good IMO)

Did you get Bils? If so, what did you set them at?

No Bilsteins and there really isn't much rake, maybe 3/4" if that. The ground isn't level where I took the pictures with the back end being a little higher. I didn't go with Bilsteins because Fox coilovers are going on next. Keep in mind, this is an Outdoorsman so the front strut is about .5" longer giving an additional .75" lift so it would be equivalent to having Bilsteins set at .7.

hey boosted that is one sharp looking outdoorsman. I was just wondering what brand of level kit you went with? I am picking up a 2014 on Monday and love the look of the level with the 315/70/17's. I have a 08 SLT now with a 4" but its too hard for my girlfriend to get in and out of so I am leaning more towards a leveling kit
Thanks,
Steven

I went with a TGC 2" spacer and was very happy with it until I got the bug to go bigger. Honestly, if I were to do it all over again, I think I would have gone with a nice set of coilovers up front with the matching rear shocks and call it good. Not saying the lift is bad as it rides nice, but for me being my daily driver, the ease of getting in and out is missed.

If you are getting an Outdoorsman and plan to use the stock struts, do not go more than 2" or you may end up with some vibrations due to the Outdoorsman strut being .5" longer than the others. Basically you end up with 2.75" over a non-Outdoorsman which I believe to be the max (safe) lift for a stock setup. If you're not getting an Outdoorsman, then you could go with 2.5". I would also recommend you get aftermarket upper control arms like Zone, Fabtech or Icon as there seems to be a few with 2014's that had issues.

Uh oh...37's showed up today. I wonder if I can squeeze them under the fenders before the coilovers go on?
