I don't know what happened. The app screwed up and won't show the pictures. But here is when I leveled my truck and put 31's on. image-1532375299.jpg image-895200727.jpg

I also have a 97 4x2 and was wondering did you use leveling springs or spacers? How much did the camber change after you did it?
