Thanks everyone! Install was really easy...had everything done in 3 hours. That being said, I either need to install UCA's or crank down the nose because we couldn't get the caster perfect when I had the alignment done. Oh well, the tweaking never ends haha

PS ~ I have 3"/2" Cornfed spacers, 1.25" Spidertraxx wheel spacers and stock XREAS suspension for sale! PM if interested.

That looks amazing Trik! I love that size tire. I know the ATs run a true 33" so i'm sure the MT is huge. And of course...lets see some more pictures.

Looks great man. Those tires make the 18s look tiny. I can't wait to see a full side shot.

Truck looks great... will you post a close up picture of your front coilovers? I'd like to see how much thread is showing.

TIA

I will be sure to get a good pic of the coilovers in the next day or two. The ride is great! I have noticed that the rear is a lot smoother, the front is stiffer than it was but I will report in again when things have started to settle in a bit.

Any close up pictures of the front c/o's... I'd like to see how much thread you have showing?

Would love to hear how you like the ride with the 2.5's without bumpers...

Thanks a lot!

Jason, sorry for the hold-up on a photo of the front coilovers...been slammed at work. Yeah, the white block in the photo is the extended bump-stop to make up for the extra height coming out of the rear. In regards to running without bumpers, the ride is fine. It was pretty stiff at first but things are starting to settle in. I bought the 2.5's in anticipation of installing a Demello front bumper at some point and I roll around with tools and junk in the back so I thought something as beefy as the 2.5's would be a better fit for me. Next purchase are some UCA's to correct the (minor) caster issue. I could bring the nose down a little but I like the height as is.
