Looks good man. Did you loose a couple mpg with those tires? I just put some Falken Rocky Mtn's on and lost a few. The stock Goodyear's had no good tread so Im thinking it's bc of the aggressive tread. Also where did you get ur leveling kit? How was the install?

Ya lost a few, install was a pain, but I was solo and using hand tools. If you have power tools and an extra pair of hands it would go easier.

got the kit from Roughcountry.com. 130$ + shipping.

Tires and level look great. I love the Nittos. Can't wait to get my level kit and put either those Nittos or Mickey Thompson MTZ's.

I know it may be hard to believe but the MPG loss is 1-2MPG just by going with the Level. Having the nose down with the air dam close to the ground saves a lot of MPG. Raising the front up allows more air to travel under the truck which creates a lot of drag. I did my 5100 level and lost 1.5mpg from just that. I did not change tires so all of my loss can be contributed directly to the Level. I have a family friend that used to run the GM proving grounds here in the Phoenix area and it is amazing how much goes into getting the MPG, air dams close to the ground are a huge part of it.

Just my 2 cents. Still worth it in my opinion. I didn't buy a 4wd truck with a Hemi to save on gas

Truck looks great by the way. Are those factory size tires 275-60-20s?

Did you get a chain tire store to do your alignment or a local place? I am having trouble finding a shop that can do mine with the rim protector on my Terras...

Went to 3 places and finally got it done. A place called Town Fair Tire, not sure if you have them where you live was able to do it. Not every Town Fair can though. This one had an adapter plate that attaches to the studs to they can do it.

Id call around and asked if anyone has the adapter plate for mud or large rims for alignment. Thats your best bet. Otherwise, I talked to another guy that said he could let all the air out and he should be able to get the regular machine on the rim.
