Default Installed Rough Country 2.5"? Leveling kit 2011

Rough country leveling kit is now installed. 2.5 in the front and 1 3/4 in the rear. Had it installed by a licensed mechanic so that the warranty will still be good. Here are the before and after measurements:

Front to top of the wheel well: before: 36.25" after: 38.25"
Rear to top of wheel well. before: 39.25" after 40"

So you can see that what I actually got was 2" in the front and 3/4 of an inch in the back.

I parked in the same exact spot to do both measurements and in both cases the truck was empty. any thoughts on this?

this work? It's not a great pic from my Cell

It was taken after I drove the truck home and before I had it lined up. The place that put the kit in could not align it as their equipment would not work on the 20 " wheels

I put the same level kit on and was not satisfied (I got the full 1 3/4" lift in the rear). I wanted a level kit not a 2" lift. After talking to Rough Country they sent me a 3/4" rear spacer to replace the 1 3/4" spacer. The back now sits 1/2" higher than the front and gave it the look I wanted.
Your truck looks great! You doin any other mods?

I'm going to add a set of n-fab bars which i have already ordered and a tonneau. Once the stock tires are worn out and i'm going to be looking for a good set for all around but mostly highway tires. How do you like your 35's?

I've been thinking about a Tonneau cover myself. I love the 35's they turn a lot of heads.
