Summit Level Kit

Well I got my kit earlier this week and finally got a chance to put it on tonight. Only took me a little over three hours, could have been a little faster but was doing it by myself..Over all, very happy with the install and product itself. I forgot to measure before installing the kit. But it looks to have added more than 2.5 inches but can't confirm that for sure.. Measurement now from front fender to top of tire is 10 3/4", rear is 8 3/4" lol so now it looks like I need to add a 2-3" block to the rear..I will have to get some pics up tomorrow..

Here's a quick pic I just took off my phone..not the best but you can see how the front is higher now..



Going to pick up a block kit for the rear today at lunch. Hopefully that will fix the issue..

Tires

I just ordered that kit as well. What size tires are you running? Any rubbing on the front leafs?


THanks,

Shawn

Current tires are 325/60/18, equivalent to a 33x12.5, thinking of going a little bigger..Haven't had any rubbing..
