Ya the keys give you about 1.5" of lift then I just cranked them up to make the truck level 32's fit no problem even at full lock and full flex no rubbing but ride got really rough so I installed rancho RS5000 they are gas charged shocks built for key leveling kits helped alot with the ride oh and I took out the front swaybar that helped to it's a 4x4 not a Ferrari lol

Nice truck, but you'll grow to hate the keys. Lift keys put added stress on the CV joints causing premature wear and sometimes failure.

They're the equivalent to the cheap coil lifts on the older trucks. You can add taller coils or spacers to the truck to lift it up, but your camber is severely affected, causing premature tire wear.

Ya I got an alignment right after the lift but I chose the keys over the suspension cause it was about $2000 cheaper and yes It changed the cv angle but not enough to cause any worry and with the suspension lift you have to replace the front drive shaft cause the angle is to much for the stock shaft and will vibrate till malfunction and the shaft is another $500 but it's only opinions cause in the end the only real way to go is solid axles IFS is for high way use lol but thanks for the heads up
