Talking NEW 2.5" leveling kit,Wheels,tires installed 18x9 VROCK Overdrives 305 65R18 Falkens

Hey everyone,
Some of you guys know Im deployed to afghanistan right now , but my wife needed the Armada to drive back to Arizona and the tires we had on there where going bad so a buddy of mine put on the 2.5" leveling kit(Billet) and had the wheels and Tires mounted and balanced for me. The Wheels are 18x9 VROCK Overdrives +0 backspacing. Tires are 305 65R18 Falken Wild Peak A/T.
My friend had to shave a small about off of the coil bucket lip but was minimal and he said he bounced it around a little and no CBC so thats a plus! The stock End links did work but I ordered the RC links anyway and the wife wont be driving it until those are put on and the alignment is done and those will be done next weekend. Once I get back to the states , Ill be putting on the RC UCAs or PRG but havent decided yet which ones. The wife says it only rubs slightly on the sharpest turns but doesnt affect driving at all. This is confirmed by my friend who put on the leveling kit. Also the ride has improved from the 22" wheels and tires we had on there before. no shimmy anymore evidently. Also waiting on the Bump stops, no one had them in stock so I had to order them. Those will be on next weekend as well. I should be back in the states in about 90 days and will do a more in depth review. Hope you guys like the pictures and notice the difference! The 22" wheels and Tires will be up for sale soon, they are Milanna *****in 22x9 with 305 45R22 Falkens. Let know what you guys think.

Keep us posted on the first person review. I'm planning on doing a similar setup with the only difference being a 305/60-18 Cooper STT tire and the PRG 2" kit.
