    What can I do to get more height out of my truck without getting crazy?

    I went with the Toytec 2.5" level up front with a differential drop. Truck was looking juicy until I put the fender flares on. Almost looks like its back to stock height. Kind of pisses me off lol. Im almost considering taking them off now. That'd be such a waste of money though.

    I do have new wheels coming that should flush out the wheels with the flares, and maybe that will help get the aggressive look back.

    Is there anything else I can add to get any more height out of my truck? Shackles maybe? I cant justify getting rid of the toytec level already and going to something completely different....

    That's a nice looking truck! Looks very aggressive I think. And does tires look aggressive too! What kind of tires are does?

    So it looks like Toytec also offers a .5" top spacer plate that can be used in conjunction with the 2.5" level.

    So I guess if I purchase that and also 1" rear shackles, thats essentially a 3-1 lift, right? Any concern with UCA at that point?

    Good looking truck. Not sure if it's the angle of the pictures, but yeah, kinda see that, doesn't look as raised with flares. But I do like the look with the flairs. I think the 3/1 would be perfect. I've been back and forth and researching and think I've come down to that setup. Even thinking about flares too. You got a side view pic with flares?

    Are those 18" rims on there now?

    When I jump to new wheels, I'll be going up to 295/70 or something similar. Got a while to go before my tires wear out.

    Wheels will be here tomorrow and on by Saturday. That'll help determine my next step. I'll either be keeping the flares on and adding spacers/shackles, or removing the flares and sticking with what I have.

    Im not sure with a +12 offset if losing the flares will even be an option. Might look too stupid

    I have +18 offset with 33x12.5x18. Sticks a bit out but it's ok.

    Any chance you could post a front shot so I can see how far out it sticks past the fender? You could even text it to me if its easier. Id really really appreciate it
