    Nice, those Sport wheels look good but have a street feel to them. These Ray 10's have a more aggressive look.

    Do you mind telling me the wires on the stock amp that you tapped into LC2I? Wanting to do the upgrade but nervous about tearing into it. Want a strait understanding before starting.

    I have spent years fiddling with and installing car stereos (20 to be exact). To be quite honest, I had the dealer install this one. Since it was being tapped into the factory harness, I didn't want to mess with it. If I were replacing the entire system, I would have done it myself. I can look at what they did if that helps. Just let me know what pics you need.

    I know there are a few threads showing what it is and what not but yours looked very simple. From the pics, it looks like they tapped into a few wires from one side of the factory amp and hooked them into the LC2I. Then ran RCA cables from LC2I to the new amp along with power wire from battery to new amp. Then speaker wire from new amp to subs.

    Truck looks great! May I ask why you went with 5100’s vs 6112’s, stock UCA’s, height of rear shackles, and any rubbing of trimming necessary for those tires?

    I went with the 5100 leveling shocks back in June since I wanted to level it. I had no intention to go higher. I also chose the 5100s in the rear. I didn't want to spend too much money on the suspension since I'm not off-roading hardcore, not even mediocre. The 5100s are perfect for my application and uses. I'm mainly hitting fire roads, small trails and hills, going to and from dirt bike riding areas, etc... Now If I was going somewhere like Moab, I would have chosen a different setup.

    I ordered SPC UCAs from @BOSS4x4s yesterday since my alignment adjustments are maxed out and the driver's side caster is off. I was hoping that I wouldn't have to with the 3" lift up front; not so lucky. The rear shackles are also from @BOSS4x4s and are adjustable and set at the highest setting. It gave me a 2" lift in the rear. I removed the small forward mudflaps up front and I did have rubbing on the inner fender well. I hit it with a heat gun but still have a bit more to go. Nothing major, no body or cab mount chops required.

    Thank you. Sounds like I need to hold off on the Led headlights and opt for the UCA’s.

    From the 5100's in the middle and stock tires compared to your current setup what are your overall thoughts on how it drives? Significantly harsher, worse turning radius, or any other negatives that accompany getting your truck looking that sweet?

    Thanks, much appreciated! The turning radius is the same. The ride is about the same; figuring the front is at the top setting and shims added w/18s compared to middle setting, no shims and 20's. It just rubs slightly on the inner fender well behind the bumper. I got it all heated up and taken care of.

    I had an issue with one of the lights (driver's side) upon arrival. One of the LED side markers were not working and the other was pointing in the wrong direction. The seller sent me a replacement and it too had problems. One LED side marker was out. I got a full refund and still got to keep the driver's side. Other than that, they are still going *knock on wood.

    This thing is sweet, I thought I finally made my mind up that I was going to get a TRD Off Road but the Sport looks bad a$$ after mods!

    So many "clean" pics of mods done. Here is a pic of my truck in the snow of suburbia. These Falken Wildpeaks work well in the snow, slush, and ice. Stopping performance is Fantastic!!
