Nice! Is it me or does the truck have a little SoCal lean to it?

I think the last picture is an optical illusion. I think it is level or slightly nose down. Either way nice looking truck. How is that set up ride so far?

Looks awesome. Let us know how those 5160s are after you get some more miles on them. I have my eyes on those for when I replace my shocks.

Looks good, Jeff. The ICON springs are nice and soft, they make a huge difference over stock. Why did you decide on the Bilstein 5160's instead of ICON shocks? The ICON 2.5 shocks are the nicest riding shock we have found to date.

Great looking truck and great thread. This is exactly the kind of thread that people who are torn between the 2.5 level kit brands are looking for. So many variables...shocks, prog coils, links, etc.

Thanks in advance for sharing. I can't wait to hear about the change and or advancement in ride and performance you come to find. Come tax returns this is what I will be researching/purchasing.

It was sitting on a bit of an incline in the one picture. It sits pretty dang level. The rear fender actually has more gap than the front fender sitting on level ground. The springs should also settle some.

Thanks bud. I don't have much time with it so far. What ride time I do have with it has been great though. Going over interstate bridges at 75-80 MPH is much smoother. I think that's the whole combo of the springs, shocks, and 3-link.

Thanks Nate! Trevor suggested the Bilstein 5160's to me so I figured I would give them a try. He has always steered me in the right direction.
