Default Finally got her leveled

Sorry about the crappy cell phone pics. Installed the Bilsteins after waiting forever for them. Got them at the highest setting and it only took my buddy and me alittle over 3 hours to install. Wheels are supposed to be here tomorrow and they will be going on Thursday along with my new tires and getting an alignment done. I'll add some pics after I get them on, that is if everything is cool with the wheels when I get them tomorrow.

Thanks for the comments guys.

LoneWolfNY, I used Bilstein ride height adjustable shocks to raise the front up level with the rear. I bought them off 4wheelparts.com. The shocks have 4 different height settings, I got mine setting at the highest setting.

916Timmy, yep, got me a set of 285/70/17's BFG KO's sitting in the garage. My wheels r supposed to be here today and plan on getting them on tomorrow. I will post some more pics when I get them on but it may be the weekend or later before I do get them posted.

Got them from 4wheelparts.com, ordered them about 2nd week in May and got them middle last week, so around a month wait but that was because they were on backorder. Got them for 100.00 each. If you get them and install yourself make sure you got another person to help you, just makes things easier and goes a little quicker, but we weren't worried about speed, just took our time.

Looks awsome! Bilsteins are easily one of my favorite mods for my truck lol.

Get it aligned yet? if not you might want to so you don't wear out those new tires.
