I leveled my truck with what ever brand the 4x4 shop used. Was about $250 installed. 21,000 miles later no problems.

I did have to add air bags to the rear. Anytime I hooked up my GN Horse trailer I felt like I was really sagging on the rear and got flashed by lots of cars after dark. Once I added the air bags, Not many flashes if I remember to pump them up when I hook up.



Although the wider tires/wheels do throw more mud on the sides of the truck
I think the tradeoff in looks is worth the extra dirt. Your truck looks great.

Aren't the Rough Country springs only 1.5" higher? I'm not sure that will bring my truck up to level. Do you have anymore pics of it?

What size SST kit did you go with? I see there are quite a few different ones available. Did you have to order the Fox Shocks separate or is there an option for them with the kit?


Also, if I level the front with say 2-3" do I need to replace the tracbar? Is an alignment required after leveling the truck? Sorry for all the questions guys but I want to do it right and avoid any costly mistakes. Thanks!

I went with the 3.5" kit which came with the trac bar drop bracket. Yes, I ordered the fox shocks when I ordered the kit.

Yes you will need to get the front end aligned.

How long have you been running the Carli kit?

Which size of SST kit did you go with?
