    You can also use a zero rate leaf spring if you dont want the harsh ride an AAL can give you. The zero rate is nice because you can stack it on a block because it is not an actual block, it bolts to the leaf pack. Here is a link for a one inch zero rate (you can also get a 2.5 inch zero rate):

    Swamper M16s so far are good, just got installed on Sat, they look aggro.

    plastic is all trimmed, it's the bottom corner of the front bumper's chrome portion that barely rubs so nothing I can do there really. Don't think the new body style has this.

    What is the max rear lift height before angle problems start? If I got 1-2" with the level kit, then I would need a 5-6" rear block to keep level.
