Are those stock shocks and springs? How much did that lower the front?

Ok that looks alot better just make sure at full drop the tie rod ends aren't maxed out in the down side up cool but full down the problem. Let me know how it looks cause if your doing slick rock still it'll be important

I plan on attending slick rock but not planning to wheel there, still in the gears breaking progress, but right now it sit perfect and doesn't feel top heavy as before, made a great improvement on the front.

Step1) jack up
step2) disconnect outer tie rod end
step3) verify that tie rod will droop beyond the steering knuckle suspension at full drop if so, then you're all good to go if not it'll depend on you at that point but keep in mind that both sides articulate differently depending on the terrain, so if left side is down right side up then you could exceed travel limits of the steering arc. ie if you bounced really hard and rebounded hard up it could possibly damage inner or the outer tie rod ends or the worst case it would leave you with a damaged rack and pinion. Carry an extra set just in case 1 of each. Post some side profile pic it allows me to compare before and after thanks looking good.

Well that looks a lot more sensible.
Might want to replace that inner CV boot.

Indeed it does. The stock spring is probably going to feel too soft, especially with all the extra weight from the larger tires and bumper; I imagine you'll bottom out the front very easily now and it doesn't look like the RC lift provides for front bump stops that I can see. Those Icon coil overs made for this lift kit look like a sensible solution, providing proper spring rates for the added weight up front while giving you the ability to adjust the ride height to maintain a useable CV angle.

Keek,
Have you considered a Straight Axle Swap (SAS)? Both IFS and SAS have individual benefits, but for the money you would spend on a top of the line IFS, you very well may have spent more than a well thought out SAS. The SAS will handle 38's w/ more articulation. Plus you have unlimited options for a front axle in today's market. Have you seen this SAS build?

Cheers-

Why would you ever want a Rockwell axle? Honestly I think the name is just thrown around and people just assume its the best. Its super heavy and archaic. Way to heavy for you truck. Your best to just get a Currie like mine or a diamond / ruffstuff if you don't mind losing abs.
