Not yet, my wheels on still on the Fedex truck but should be here today then it will be at the shop tomorrow getting them put on with the tires and an alignment done. The alignment wasnt to bad out, pulls a little to the left and the steering wheel is just a hair off. I thought it would have been alot worse.

Could you mesure the height from the ground to fender please?
I would like to have an idea on how much lift i would gain from Bilstein.I know it say 2.8'' of lift, but Outdoorsman are suppose to be .7'' higher stock. So we should only gain 2.1'' of lift, but i would like to know for sure.

Your truck look great, even with the stock tire and rim. That's why i might just level it right away.

My driveway isnt perfectly level but from what I can tell i am still .75" lower in the front. The back measured 39" and the front went from 36" to around 38.25" with them at the highest setting. I didnt really think that it would make that much of a difference but even from inside you can tell u got alittle bit of a lift in the front.

Well we do have a .7'' lift stock on Outdoorsman.I mesure mine 2 days ago at 36.125''. So they give 2.1'' of lift on the Outdoorsman. I guess i'll order Bilstein on stock wheel/tire for now and do a lift kit next summer with 37'' tires.


Thank for the number.

Not a problem, glad to help..

Guess I will just be getting the alignment done tomorrow, just got my wheels off the Fedex truck and all 4 are scuffed and scratched, looks like someone mounted tires on all 4 and then took them off, not pleased at all.

That sucks man. Hate it when you are really looking forward to something, and this sort of crap happens. Very frustrating. They should discount your replacements.

Company offered me half off if I would keep them. I said no problem, I can live with a few scratches for half off.
