Yokev, it looks very nice. How does it ride after the lift? Any problems? I'd like to bring mine up a little, maybe 2" max.

Thanks guys. No problems..I just picked it up last night and drove it straight home, but it ride like stock and i didn't notice anything weird going on with the truck afterwards. I aligned perfectly, and that's definitely a good sign about the lift..

I have 'Squatch Arms?
So dude ended up doing the Zone for $1700 installed
I told them to just remove the air dam instead of cutting it, and I gotta bring it back today to have like 1/4" of the indoor/outdoor carpeting in the front wheel wells trimmed.
Other than that, seems to ride more or less like stock, which prolly is the same yours does since everything's dropped and the stock (front) shocks are left in their OE position on both lifts.

****, I think they would've had to make some strategic cutting on my air dam so it didn't rub if they didn't remove it.
I brought it back today for them to trim some of the indoor-outdoor carpeting in the front of the wheel well.
I told them to just use some shears on it, but they cut back that plastic honeycomb **** behind the carpet instead so the 'trimming' stayed hidden.
Plus, there's now a solid 2" more of clearance there now, where if they just trimmed the carpet like I suggested, there would've only been 1/2" more.
Your tires didn't hit your air dam? I coulda swore you have at least as 'big' of tires that I do..?
Then again, you also have a shell, so that'll pull the front end up a smidge, yes?
As far as the 'waxing' goes, I 'removed' the hair on one of my arms via a small gas bbq explosion(you know on a gas bbq with an electric starter and said starter doesn't light the gas right away..) about 10 years ago, does that count?

LOL, but you're still looking. Do you also read those magazines for just the articles?

I did a bunch of trimming on the weekend after the 2" spacers jacked everything up. No trimming needed before that. I also pulled the honeycomb plastic shield and trimmed it like you did...definitely made a big difference.

Right on. No, you didn't mention it but there's a sneak peak in one of your pictures that show's the shops name.
Btw, is there a warranty for their install? Did they perform the alignment and was that included in the price?
I need to get this done soon. That setup looks pretty darn sweet.
