i tried these ones first but they had a narrow beam angle so didnt really work worth a damn. the normal bulbs have a much greater angle

Well got my new to my truck leafs in. They aren't arched as much as the stock ones so I didn't think I was going to gain any height but I gained 1/2" at The wheel wells and 3/4" at the hitch.

Look like im going o be lookin for a set of 2 possibly 3" blocks for the rear to go with the 2" front spacers.

Also thinking about a 3" body lift. Haw hard are they to install?
What's a average time to install a full kit?
I am a millwright with a full shop of tools at my disposal even forklift if needed.

I'll post some pics when I get to a computer, can't on the iPhone

3" blocks are $60 here in town and then just ned ubolts. Probably around 50 for those so $110 ish for the rear 3"

And was $80 for the 2" front.

$200 isn't bad for a 2-3"lift lol
