Much better pic! What are the measurements? Looks like you got right much out of the front.

it was just the rough country 2" leveling kit. the picture is kind of deceiving though. between the fact that i had just dropped it off the jack stands and the angle i took the picture at, the front appears to be sitting higher than the rear. When i measured the front fenders they actually only sit about 1/2" lower than the rears. im really satisfied with how it turned out.....on to the next one haha

It does look like you got more than 2" out of it. When I first saw the pic I thought it was a 4" lift or something like that. The second pic is much better.

ok so heres my question. Ive always heard if you mess with the suspension you should get it realigned. I drove it after i finished and it didnt pull to either side whatsoever. Since i raised it, would that mess with the camber of the front wheels? And should i definitely go get it aligned?

ok guys....i stopped by my local 4x4 shop today to check on some wheels for this thing. ive decided on the KMC XD Hoss 20x9. The guy there suggested a tire size of 285/55-20. Any thoughts? Also, the wheels come in an offset of +12 and +18. From what ive read, the factory 18s i have, have an offset of +31. without a bigger lift, im assuming i should get an offset closest to my factory offset, so im assuming to go with the +18? Any thoughts would be much appreciated. And im glad yall like my truck, its not much, but a work in progress.....
