At least you have the expensive lift out of the way. BL is cheap. Bigger tires are sweet. Re-gearing is awesome. Hearing your woman ***** about your truck being too high is priceless. What more convincing do you need?

Make sure you get gap guards when you're done. I hate seeing huge gaps between the frame and the body
