I put the shocks on myself so no cost there. Today it goes in for a allignment as i can see it's off (49.99).

I was surprised as i got those american eagle 17x9 -12 offset rim's for only $156 a rim. I ordered my tires last month and got a $80 rebate for the set. They also said i had to order then to keep my $300 a tire price as all goodyears were going up 10 percent this month because of rubber prices.

I'm very happy with my new truck and glad some others like the look.

Thanks for the pics, especially the ones that show the struts will not blow if the caps are taken off. I have these but, have not installed them yet. I will install them when I get home from camp along with a mufflex 18". Your truck looks real good, can't wait till mine looks that good. From the pics it looks like you have them to the max height setting, have you noticed any vibration in 4x4? I have heard that the vibration issue has been remedied on the 2011's but would like to hear from someone who has done the level on one. Thanks again for the pics and info.

I haven't had it in 4 wheel yet but give me till the end of the weekend as i am planning on testing the package out.

My 5100's are on the max setting.

I also had the truck alligned and will post the printout. It was out quite a bit.

Never go wrong with Duratracs.

They look awesome and ride pretty decent.

Sick looking truck though man, I think just upgrading the shocks are the best way to go other than shoving some block in like you said.

Did you do anything in the back or did you just level it out?

Truck looks great! Adding the 5100's is my next mod. Did this get you completely level?

No vibes in 4x4 with a allignment. I never had it in 4x4 before the allignment so i can't say if it would of or not.

So I guess you put the snap ring all the way at the top position. It looks like
you got exactly 2.75" of lift. Very nice.
