The final two steps of the installation were a precise front-end alignment and testdrive. We retained the stock tires so we could really evaluate the lift and installation during the next 700 miles of our road trip. The front end was a bit stiffer than stock (expected with multishocks and arched springs), but the truck essentially rode and drove like it did stock. Tuff Country recommends 35-inch-tall tires with a 6-inch lift. We’ll be going well over that, but thought we’d give Tuff Country the legal nod by mentioning its recommendation. We did not need to lengthen the truck’s driveshafts with this lift, and we got a full 6-inch lift at the front and 4 1/4-inch in the rear for a level ride.
