No problem. I definitely recommend doing it to your truck. Though 2" doesn't seem like much, it makes a world of difference in terms of looks, and it is definitely noticeable.

btw, you can unclip the rear brakelines and abs lines if the lines dont have enough slack for you.
Yeah, that's the only thing I was worried about concerning the install, but surprisingly there was plenty of slack so I didn't need to leave any of the lines disconnected.

Wait till you get bigger and beefier tires than the crappy stock Long Trails. You'll spend hours of your life just staring at how much more awesome your truck will look. Trust me. I grew a full beard in the time that I was staring at mine.

Actually no, the stock shocks work fine, and I haven't really noticed a difference in ride quality.

looks good, i'm only a month away from getting my 2" lift from prg. i'm amazed at the difference such a little lift can make in how the vehicle looks. do you have any coil bucket contact or noise from the leaf springs?

So, all you needed to do was install the lift and thats all? If its that easy I will order one in the next couple weeks. Did you need to do any camber adjustments? Thanks.

It was a fairly simple install, and the directions were pretty good. Luckily we have an auto hobby shop on the Air Force Base where I could get the entire vehicle up on a lift. If it's possible I highly recommend doing it this way rather than using a manual jack. Also its a good idea to have someone else with you especially when trying to slide the blocks in rear. As long as you have some decent knowledge of cars and a decent supply of tools you should be OK. Luckily I had a friend that knows all about that stuff or else I would have had no idea what I was doing. But hey, it only cost me $17.00 to rent a garage stall with full use of all their tools for 3 hours which was pretty sweet.

As far as adjustments, I'll probably take it in to have the alignment checked and adjusted just in case and then I'll be good to go.

Nice - same lift i did... Wish i had the extra 50 bucks at the time to do the deavers - Who wants a set of 1.5" blocks? The deavers will be on there way soon...

The ride quality definately did not change, and with the addition of the 33" tires - i noticed a marked improvement in ride quality because of the bigger sidewall of the tire.
