LOL - Freudian slip that applies..... It's your money - if you like the look - that's all that matters.......

 

MPG be damned......

I'm actually curious to know if you noticed any MPG difference with the leveling kit and lowering shackles. I got a 2014 regular cab, and I'm planning to do the same that you did to yours... btw I really like the look

I don't know about this thread, but i'll add input on the drop shackles. I lowered my rear with drop shackles. I think it dropped the rear 1.5"

I didn't notice any change at all in suspension or MPG's

The rear is still a little higher than the front, but closer to level than stock.

Which drop shackle kit did you use? I’ve looked at bell tech and Mcgaughys both say 1-2” drop. I like yours at 1.5
