How does the 5 in. lift ride? Heard mixed opinions on it.
I think it rides well. I am getting the Radflo Coilovers though. The stock + spacer doesn't give me the travel and ride I think I could easily get out of the better coil overs. But as my daily driver it's fine. I have hit some sections off roading where I felt I could have used the better suspension

Looks good! How much did the dealer charge to install the lift?
It was already installed when I bought it. I have the sticker and it was like $4500.00 for lift, wheels/tires and yakima Skybox and Anklebiter. I am sure the guy didn't pay that. He was able to talk them way down since it was an 08 model while the 09s were coming out.

a dealer installed Calmini 5 inch body lift and some nice Yakima equipment for the roof.
Nice X, but change this to a "suspension lift" since there's no such animal as a Calmini 5 inch "body lift."

You'll love the coilovers. When I added mine to my kit I gained 4 inches of clearance at the skid/drop bracket.

After a couple weeks of street driving and one time in the dirt I am really liking the new coil overs. The difference is noticeable straight out of the gate for me, seems like I am tracking a lot better, less sway/roll in normal driving. While out in the dirt I did notice the bigger hits seems to be soaked up a lot better. Everything just feels more plush.

Now what to do with the tax return :dontknow: ?
