    With the front level, rear block, and 35s.
    Front is now 41" at the fender lip, Rear is 42".
    This is with the toolbox, 180lb steel rear bumper, and 36 gallons of fuel.

    So a 5" lift in the back overall. Not too bad considering it was $180 for the leaf springs, $60 for the block/U-Bolts, and $300 for the tires. I reused the 2.5" HBS level from the other truck for the front.

    $$$ Spent well.
    Tires are just consumable item anyway.

    Well look at that. Bilstein 5100 takeoffs with the strut assembly for $40. Spent the leftover shock money on a pair of Fox 2.0 for the rear.

    Thanks. It's been a lot of work getting this truck up to date on maintenance. The rear springs and shocks were factory with 150k miles. The front has been messed with, since the shocks aren't oem, and aren't the same either.
    The guy I got the bilstiens from said they might have 50k miles, but he replaced them with Icons. I know they can't be worse than the monroe that is up there right now.
