Drives awesome too. Love your build alludc, wish I had the balls to go that big!
I'll have to experiment with the chalk test. However, BFG recomended 47 psi for my tires and not less than 37psi for on road use. Before hearing that I had them at 33PSI for better ride and the often baja style driving I like to do next to the railroad tracks lol. I'll have to measure my tires again bc I only measured one that I had to take off the vehicle for a flat repair but it looked to me I had virtually no tire wear in the 2000 miles I've had them except maybe a little less than 1/32" on the outside of the tire.

Re: RRO 2.5" lift + Bilstein 5100(front)

How is towing with this setup? I am looking toward the RRO 2.5 with Bilsteins 5100 in the front with 275/55-20(terragrapplers or ko2's) tires on a 14 Altitude. Which I will tow a camper/light-rv a few times every other month. The reason I ask is because when I went into a local 4x4 shop here in Northern Virginia and asked them their opinion they pretty much busted out the holy water and told me they would never suggest doing that to the GC with the load leveling in the rear. That and their general attitude with RRO products were negative to say the least. He said something about the rear would never stop adjusting because of the lifted front.

P.S. I have found that you can replace the nivomats and mounts but I would like to keep them for towing
