I finally had some time this weekend to install my 2 inch BB it took about 5 hours. The hardest part was trying to get those front springs back in after the spacers were put in. I would recommed spring compressors to anyone who will be attempting this! The best part of it all is when I went today to get the wheels aligned I forgot that I had purchased an alignment package. That was a nice surprise, now I have unlimited alignments for the next 3 years!!

I was itching to hit lost creek today with this nice weather. Hopefully soon! Let me know if anyone is going out that way soon.

It's been about a week and all is well, the only complaint is that it is a super stiff ride. Do you think if I replaced the stock shocks that it would help?

I've heard shocks can definitely soften the ride, I've heard Rancho RS5000 are softer than stock , but I guess it's trial and error to find the comfort area.
