Great stance! Don't get fender flares, maybe rear wheel spacers to get them even with the fronts.

I keep going back and forth if I want to get fender flares or not. I like the idea of having less tire outside of the fenders. Mainly to deal with mud being flung all over the truck. Does anybody know what in the lift causes the fronts to stick out of the fender more than the rears? Is it due to the new spindles?

The front lift spindles push the wheel mounting points out farther. You can get the tires tucked under a little more with diferent offset wheels OR get wheel spacers to bring the rears out to match the front.

Truck looks great man! I just got a set of fender flares myself. Haven't finished mounting them yet, but I did mount the fronts and they look really good. The Bushwackers are proly the best, but way too pricey for me. I got these oem replicas instead for only $159. http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewitem ... 0746218533
I was going to color match them, but after mounting the fronts, like em black cuz they match the liners. My truck is silver though. I've never been a fan of flares but I have the same problem with the spindles pushing my front wheels out too far, so I need some extra protection.
I'm also thinking of adding spring replacements. I was looking into the Skyjacker softride 5" lift spring pack, and read some good things about it. Which ones did u go with?

Any updates on how you like the lift after 6 months?? This is the exact kit I am looking at buying, and I was curious as to how it is performing.

Truck looks fantastic!

I love the looks of these trucks lifted. I wanna put a lift on my truck bad but I feel like with my luck I would have problems with the truck after I lifted it. I want my truck lifted but I think I'm just gonna go with the bilstein leveling shocks. Nice looking truck though man.
