Yes, plus a Tbar crank. The AAL gave me right about a 2 1/2" lift, and the T bar crank did as well. They're not maxxed out, so my ride really wasn't affected.

Looks good, just need bigger tires. How many turns did you do to get 2 1/2"? It took 4 full turns to level mine out. 1"

That, I can't answer. The dealer I use, cranked them for me to level, and did the alignment for free. He did say there was some turns left on them. Obviously, I'm on pretty good terms with those guys. I don't always have a lot of free time, so sometimes, I just have them do it for me. I'd rather do it myself, but like I said, my time is pretty limited, especially when the weather is good.
I can say, that the truck has really never been abused or neglected, and not run down crappy roads as fast as possible, so the suspension, even with 111,000 miles on it is in pretty good shape. I tend to baby my vehicles. I still have the original shocks, bushings, tie rod ends, etc. on it, and everything is in spec. I will be replacing shocks this spring though.

That's great^ cost me $100 for an alignment, but I needed one anyway.

Nice tint. I only did one coat on mine because I told myself that I wouldn't get carried away and I'm happy I did. However, in bright sunlight, you can hardly tell they're tinted. I don't know if I want to do two coats, but I do like your red truck with the dark tails.

I will do 2 coats on my corners soon because those things are too damn yellow/orange "stock".

How many coats did you go on your corners?
