Another leveling kit/35" tire install thread

Threw a Readylift Stage 2 2.5" leveling kit on yesterday and 285/75-18 Toyo M/T's installed today. Tires are equivalent to a 35x11.50. Alignment was still spot on (had to adjust the toe to get the wheel centered again). I almost opted for weights on the inside of the wheel only, but they were pretty far off and I'd rather have them balanced correctly than "this was as close as we could get". Pics below...

Not much to the kit, some spacers, shock extenders, new bracket for the brake line, a track bar bracket, and bump stop spacers (not everything pictured):

Very nice Matt. Your truck looked sweet before, even better now. I been kicking around a front level kit and F350 spacers to raise mine up slightly.

Thanks guys.

The 2wd valance (which is shorter) is on the to-do list, pretty inexpensive ($65) and should make a pretty big difference. 2wd is 4 3/8", 4wd is 7 1/2", pretty significant.

Looking pretty good. The 35" tires look better with your 2.5" lift than my 3.5" lift. I might have to go up to 36" or 37" for my next set of tires to get the look I want.

Looks great ! Makes me think twice about just using the stock rims instead of getting some after market types. I have 17's which I think would still look good with the toyo MT's in 285/75r17.

Do you happen to know how much your pkg raised the overall height of your truck? I am looking at doing the same thing but I'm limited by a low parking garage at my work....

Nice combo setup! Really sets off your SD...

So...do you have any driving expressions yet? How does it handle / ride? MPG's?
