In the last week I have got my RC full level kit on the truck, as well as a set of 285 70 17 kenda klever A/T tires. Tires went on last night as well as the alignment. I love the way it sits now, and the look of the larger tires. Here is a before and after photo for now.

I love the ride of it. It is definitely more stiff but I like it that way. Feels more solid.

Got my stereo finished up a few weeks ago. It sounds great, went for a sound quality build on this one, as well as a clean install, kept a minimum to visible wires.

I got my new wheels in a couple of days ago. Ended up going with these,

Now they just get to sit in the garage until the snow is done for the year, don't want to stick my brand new wheels on the salty roads. The waiting is going to kill me.

Also ordered a new set of headlights. They are a clear corner set, those will go on next week.

I dig the wheels. Good luck holding out for Spring! I've had about enough of winter at this point.

Looks good, how did the leveling kit install go? Im planning to do it myself after local garage quoted $500 which also included alignment and mounting/balancing new tires, but $500 bucks seemed high to me. From videos I have watched, it does not seem that bad.

I ended up just having a shop do it, I called around I got quotes from $300-$600. I had a truck accessories shop do it for $300. It looks like a pretty easy install, as long as your torsion keys aren't seized and rusted in there like mine were. They ended up having to call a guy to come in and cut the old ones out the next day, they said every thing else went good though. But even after that, they still honored there $300 quote.

i am curious on why they needed to torch anything....using a good strong Name brand Air hammer makes easy work of removing the T-bars and a good impact will take care of the adjuster.
