Once I got the caster dialed in to ~5 degrees, its been very good on the road so far. The shocks are a bit stiffer than the stock ones (running rocksports) and don't soak up the minor bumps quite as well but they do a better job with the bigger stuff. Body lean and fading under braking are almost entirely gone now though which is awesome. Won't get a chance to wheel it with the stock tires so can't comment on that.Since your driving it with just the lift. How does it ride/handle with the lift being the only dfference. Tires can change everything one way or another depending on load rating, width, size, etc.
