I'll take some pics this morning and post.

Sorry for the delay, Christmas stuff with the family. This is the most level place I could find nearby. Seems pretty level. I may add a leaf in the rear for towing.

Truck looks great! How is the ride quality with all that lift and did you get the adjustable trac bar and drop brackets?

When I got the Readylift Stage 3TP kit, after install, it rode a little stiff feeling in the front end, but tracked the same KIT. Track bar drop bracket came with the first kit I installed. When I added this KIT, it made a huge difference. Super smooth ride and have no issues at all other than I need at least 35" tires

I love it! I have the same kit minus the 1" extra lift. Guess I need to start savings pennies again. Lol. I already have Firestone airbags to help while towing. I def recommend them. Made a world of difference.
