    Like those tires. I went with 275/65R18's since they fit stock. Didn't have any leveling at the time.

    Since then I put Bilstein 5100 struts on and installed the front at 0.58" of lift. Which replaced the saggy originals so I'm about 1" above where I was before. Hoping to go bigger on tires next set. What kind of mpg are you guys seeing with the bigger tires?

    In the future I want some upgraded upper control arms to keep the arms off the bump stops with more leveling. After that I'll bump the front up another inch or so.

    I'd love to put the 5100's on her truck, it has 80k on it right now and the shocks still seem pretty good shape.

    Just put them on yesterday so not real sure on the mpg, which in all honesty I have never kept up with the mileage since she drives it 90% of the time.

    Planning to do some exhaust work on it next and most likely get it dyno tuned.

    I bet if you took those shocks and struts off you'd be surprised her shot they are. Mine had about 72,000 miles on them and the fronts were definitely on the way out while the backs were not doing a whole lot.

    I want to put a 3" Magnaflow muffler on the stock pipe. Just haven't had a reason. With the kiddo I now have to justify the expense of things. So it, along with a tune, upper control arms, bigger tires, etc is off in the future as needed.

    The beginning of this thread was bonus points for axle swaps now it's frowned upon? :crazy::doah:

    I ended up cutting the muffler off and putting a piece of pipe in place of the muffler, sounds great and is alot cheaper than doing an exhaust system. lol
