Took it down a notch

Well I guess my A.D.D. kicked in, got bored with it where it was. I've been wanting to lower is so I decided to take baby steps lol. I pulled my TEI spacer out and then replaced the 3.5" blocks on the rear with factory 2" blocks. I'm exactly 40.5" on all four corners with the 275/65/20's. My rear sits a little lower than most because I have a very heavy toolbox back there. Here's a couple of pics I snapped before it got dark:

Looks good man. I drove mine for four years lifted 6 inches on 37's before I lowered it back to stock height last year. Never again will I own a lifted truck.

Well it felt like it was sitting a little nose high. I pulled my toolbox out (cause I sold it) and gained almost an inch out of the rear!! I think it sits perfect now. Snapped a couple of pics while I was at the gas station today:

That thing looks soooo much better in stock form. I too am with the no lifted truck thing, level the front, and keep stock rims with a nice tire.
