Ok, so i will have pictures up soon for everyone to see. I have a few questions. During install i was to put the compression bars snug to the new rear cross member, then mark on the transmission cross member where to drill the holes. Where they sat on the tranny crossmember was different from side to side. I measured from outside of crossmember into the bar mounting edge and it was 1" difference. Instructions said drill where they sit, so i went ahead and did. I dont know if this 1 " if bad or not? Also does anyone run wheel spacers with their lift in the rear end. its such a difference from front to back, Like im talking 2.5" difference sticking out in the front. I was thinking going with 1.5" spacers to take away that look. Ill get pics posted within a couple days.

Looks good. They lift kits definitely push our fronts out about 2" as you described. I also run 2" spacers without any issues.. makes the truck look great

I don't know if I would go with the aluminum ones in your application then.. the steel ones may be the better choice. I only haul with my rig every once in a while. I just make sure to take my wheels off and re-torque them frequently just in case. (haven't had a loose one yet). And yes in my opinion 2" is perfect, no where near too much :drink
