Awesome brother!! You definitely will love it!! With the 2" lift, you more than likely will be sitting bulldog, but it shouldn't be too bad. I just preferred the level look as opposed to the bulldog or I would of left mine sitting that way too.

I prefer the level look as well. The reason I went with a 2" lift is because I have about a 4" different between front and rear. Currently my front is at about 34.25 and the back is at about 38.15. I am still worried that the rear will still sit higher even with the lift. I might wait a week after installing the front just to see how it looks, it will depend on how it sits after the front is installed. I will have to see, its only been 15 hours since I ordered it and I am already wishing it was here. It is time for someone to invent teleportation shipping.

Dang, that's quite a difference in height ride! My truck, granted I see you have a 3rd gen and mine is a 4th gen, but still..My truck was 37" in the front and 38.5 in the rear. But I definitely know your pain! I kept checking the UPS site everyday just to see if maybe they were ahead of schedule lol. Waiting sucks!!

Your truck looks amazing man! I just wanted to say thank you for posting all the info on your set up. Made my decision easy. Im getting the same set up done on my 13 ' mineral gray Saturday mornin. I went with the toyo at2 rather than the mud terrai though, and the stock Laramie wheels. I can't wait.

Took me awhile but finally got some pics of my truck after the lift. Same set up, 4.5" spindles in the front and 3" coil springs in the rear, I used the stock wheels and Toyo Open Country AT2 35x12.5x20.

Looks perfect!! I think the 4.5" spindle lift is the perfect amount of lift. It's not a crazy amount but it's still up there. I really like how the ride quality remains like stock (IMO). The only thing I didn't like about the spindle lift is how they push the front wheels out further than the back. But it's not noticeable to the average person looking at your truck. I've got the 2.5" bushwackers on mine so it's not noticeable at all on mine now.

Truck looks real good brother!!
