    I’ve gotten bits and pieces of my kit in the mail. Really hoping to have the rest of it by the time I get out of work on Friday. I’ve ditched the idea of 26’s. Just too small of a tire for the roads I have to travel on. 140 miles daily just to and from work, I just know something bad is bound to happen

    Thanks bud, appreciate that. I'll be making some changes soon.

    Hahaha, that's great.

    Did the same thing, pieced together my suspension as well. Took a little time but, it was worth it.
    I hear that about tiny tires. Better to be safe than sorry.
    Have you decided on what wheels size since you're not going with the 26s?
    What wheels are you looing at?

    Got everything installed. That's at 4.5/6" and I had to swap to a smaller tire due to a belt being broken in one of my 275/55's. A buddy had a nice set of 255/50's laying around that he gave me until I get new wheels. I'm leaning towards LTZ 24's but I have a feeling they will rub pretty hard

    Looks good... curious about the extra .5" up front?

    Also what did you end up doing with the auto leveling out back?

    Also is that the 255/50's in the pics or is that before swapping tires?

    Tony said with drop shocks all the way down and spindles, it’s 4.5”

    I just unplugged it. The warning comes up on the dash but I just clear it. I thought it was a constant light

    275/55’s in the first picture before the drop. 255/50’s in the pictures with the drop

    I'm not sure how he figures 4.5"... drop shocks with no spacers are 2" drop and spindles are also 2" drop. That is the way I am running mine as well.

    So are you still running the stock rear shocks or did you go with the Belltech drop shocks?

    I kept the auto leveling in the rear by installing air shocks with the same extended/collapsed length as the Belltech drop shocks and running shorter links on the sensors.

    Thank you! The more I look at it, the happier I am with the result and I’m kind of digging the smaller tires on the 20’s. It rides great for the amount of drop and no rubbing at all!

    It’s weird to say but my favorite part of the truck is still the tint. I’ve never seen anyone with anything this dark (locally). It’s 5% over factory on all back windows, 5% on the front doors and 30% on the windshield
