Well I finally got my lift finished at 11pm last night. Got alignment today and could not be happier. Still gotta pull mudflaps off but im really happy with the fabtech spindle lift. Tires are 31" BFG M/Ts, truck handles them pretty good for a 4 banger and 3.73s. Next project is to hunt down an 8.8 rear and swap it in. Here's a few pics, crappy camera phone. This weekend I was gonna go fishing and will get some better pics of the truck!
and how is that 2.3 handling those 31's? What gears do you have in the back?
Performance wise all I have is kn intake and flowmaster 40 on it. I am very suprised how well it does, it's honestly not that much more sluggish then when it was stock. It has 3.73s in rear. Im starting the search for an 8.8 with 4.10s to swap in the rear.
i can tell you something right now tho... ditch the steelies as fast as you can... personal experience they weigh a fouackakck load.... my 32's and steelies weighed 85lb i beleave it was... my alum wheels and 32's weigh 62lb.... thats alot of rotating mass... and my MPG jumped up a little too, and thats coming from a 4cyl big tire owner
Ya I honestly shoudle have bought some nice alum wheel. Ill have to weigh my tire/wheel but I know their heavy. Right now my concern is finding an 8.8 to swap and then maybe ill think about new wheels.
