    Just found an '05 DC with only 55k.

    First up is a leveling kit, then tires, exhaust and intake.

    Any lessons learned would be great.

    Just installed 1.5" wheel spacers to eliminate some minor rubbing due to the size tires I purchased.
    BeforeIMG_0541.jpgAfterIMG_0543.jpgNo more rubbing and look great!
