Default It won't be long now!

O.k guys the mods have been ordered and are on the way! Thanks for everyone's help that have answered my questions. Here is what I decided on. Zone 6 inch lift with 5 inch rear coil springs and Nitro shocks. Rancho 2.25 front leveling shocks, 325/65/18 BFG AT's ( i do some hwy driving so I didn't go with off road tires) on 18x9 moto metal wheels. And a few more mods that I'm going to surprise you guys with. It all could be finished by the end of next week! Here is a before picture below. I will def post pics when it's all done!

I'm trying to make sure the truck sit's level. Most people are using Bilsteins to set at 1.4 or 2.1 to level the truck and I can't get those right now so I went with the Rancho's. After talking to the guys At Bully's with the Zone kit and those I should be sitting dead level. Right now I'm probably 2.5 inches lower in the front.

You're gonna be riding SOOO much higher!

Didn't realize the Bilsteins were on backorder for that long, wow. I tracked down an old email from when I ordered mine back in March 2012. Try turnermotorsport.com or allshocks.com they order direct from Bilstein. Unless yours are already ordered, just see if these are in first.
