Default Leveled and New Tires today. What does everyone think?

I finally got around to leveling the truck and bought tires for it today. I pick up the tires tomorrow, Bridgestone Dueler AT Revo 2 285/70/17, but I leveled it today. I wanted as much height as possible.

Im not sure what the stock height is, I think 37 in. from the ground to the fender stock. I leveled it to 38 1/2 in. up front and the stock 40 in. in back. The tires should give me another 1/2 in.

I love the way it looks now. Def. more aggressive. Ill take another pic and upload it once I get the tires on. In the mean time here is the level.

Before:



After:



Let me know what you think. Someone said they think the front is too high... What does everyone else say?

I definitely don't think it looks too high in the front. The tires will make it look that much better. Those ones definitely look a little small.

Personally I would take off the side steps too. That will help make your truck look even higher.

Nope, doesn't look high in the front to me.

Stance Looks perfect IMO, the larger tires will help a little, but I think you should have gone larger..
