Nice, those are good quality kits. I would pass on the CAI, these trucks flow well from the factory and you won't really notice anything. At least on my 06 I didn't with the Airraid or the Volant.

Ok, good to know. I have not really researched them yet.

Nice truck!
I would have tried to talk you out of a 2.5" leveling kit but it sounds like I'm too late. lol
The intakes are a waste though, Trent is right. My AEM just makes noise. I got it for $80 and had custom tunes made for it so it would cost me to get rid of it. So it stays...

Did it come with 3.55s or 3.73s?

nice truck, congrats! the autospring kits are supposed to be the best, i believe they are offset so the UCA doesnt hit the coilover.

I have the autospring 2.5" kit on my f150. It is indeed offset but my upper arm still hits the coil sometimes. Not that much really but I can hear it when it does it. If I did it over again I'd probably only go with a 1.5" or 2" kit.

I think you guys talked me out of the cold air. You are a little late on the leveling kit, ended up with a 2" instead of 2.5". It's got the 3.73's.

Oh nice on the 3.73s. Seems like more of the new trucks have the 3.55s in them stock.

20s are actually cheaper than 18s right now. Its a more common size for some tires.

X100000 I LOVE the 20's. I want to find a set of those. But I think my 18's would look pretty sick with a nice set of BFG A/T's.

Good job on the 3.73s and 2" leveling kit. I'd go for less still if I could. Better yet a real lift. Every time I have money though I buy something else.
