Talking 2500 Lift installed finally!

Well I started Tuesday night and finally got it done today after running into problem after problem, it's a 2005 2500 4x4 with a 5 inch Rough Country lift with Diesel springs in the front. Final lift height numbers are about a gain of 6.5 inches in the front and 6 in the rear.

Yeah its gonna get 37s they just might have to wait alittle longer than planned, ran into a few problems during install and had to buy a lot of unplanned parts. So far I'm pleased with the ride, it has diesel springs in the front instead of hemi springs and a add a leaf in the back and a block since it sits higher than I thought it was going to.
