I had a 2006 model 4x4 with a TGC 2.5 spacer and loved the truck's stance, and it rode a little rough, but I figured that was just the way it should be with a 4x4. I now have 2012 and had the Bilstein 5100's installed at 1.4 inches(because the shop I had do it didn't take it all the way to 2.8 as I asked, and then didn't have time to have it fixed before leaving town). Anyways, the truck rides smooth as stock with these, and even when I do eventually have it taken up to 2.8 inches, I don't see it affecting the ride much. These are the way to go...better ride and able to go higher than a 2.5 spacer. Just my 2 cents.

The company is Supreme Suspensions. The risers front and rear are excellent quality products.
3 hours I had front and rear done by myself.
I will post some pics tomorrow.

Can you post pics of this? It sounds nice. I plan on going with the same tire size but with a 6 inch lift.

I put on a 2.5 inch spacer I bought from the seller "Sprngbender" on Ebay. Istallation was fairly easy and the price was nice. I've had no issues since installation.
Here's the ebay page if anyone is interested:

You are getting a good deal. I talked to my dealership and was told about $550 for leveling kit and install. Didn't really seem like a good price to me.
