Thanks members

So I just finished my lift and tires and wanted to thank the members here because this forum was a large part of my research. Never joined because between here and google was able to find all my answers. I thought I should contribute my experience for others that do the same. First of all as way of disclaimer I am probably of average to perhaps below average mechanical inclination, don't weld and quite frankly would be nervous drilling new holes in my truck. In picking a lift and tires I wanted to make some modest improvements in appearance without sacrificing towing or payload. It had to still fit in my garage and I rarely take it off road and when I do it is forest roads. I put on the ready lift stage 3 TP with toyo at2 295/65 20's on stock rims. I did it with floor jacks and hand tools. The instructions read about 2 hours, took me a solid day. Heck it took me a good hour just tightening the u bolts on the back. Not sure if they sent me u bolts that were too long or what but I have a good 3.5 inches showing and they don't thread that easily. Would have gone and bought an air impact with deep sockets if it wasn't the end of the project! Still working on centering my steering wheel. Thought I had it straight until drove down the road. Open to any questions/comments. I'll post pic in a bit. Turned out just how I wanted.
