Finally got my truck lifted!!

So after months of wanting and waiting, I finally have my truck lifted. After 7hrs of install last Saturday and tires on Thursday it's all done.
Here's some before pics

That's Donahoe coils up front, Downey AAl in rear, Bilstein 5100's, American Racing 23's, 32x11.5 BFG M/T
I love the way it looks and rides. I can't thank my brother enough for everything he did with helping install and with the tires. It wouldn't have happened without him. Comments are welcome, as long as they're not badClick the image to open in full size.

I got my coils and the bilsteins from Wheelers Offroad, it was like 1069 shipped. Downey's were 97, rims I bought used for 210, and the tires were 600 (I got a sweet deal through my brother). So all together around 2000 , which is a lot looking back at it now. But I'm very happy with the result and there didn't seem to be really any power drop either.

well it looks really good....

did you mean 500 for the tires? typo...I got 33x12.5 BFG M/T's for Mr Tire (tire place) for about 600 mounted and balance...but that was for buying, mounting and balancing 5 tires since I had a spare on the back (it was a Wrangler)...no discounts...

No, they were 600 mounted, balanced, and replacement package. They retail at about 152 each without any replacement. I got these through Discount tire and the guy said that for everything that I was getting should cost around 800. So I'm pretty happy.

I love them so far. When I got them I was expecting a stiffer ride than what I got. I have yet to take them off road, but should be fixing that this coming weekend. But from what I hear, people have been very impressed with how they handle off road.
