I agree with above posts, looks good but bigger tires and wheels will make it a beast.

x2 return they keys get your $$$ back and just max out your stock keys. my keys are at the same height as maxed key would be, that way you still have somewhat of a good ride.

If you do use the keys make sure you still have suspension drop after!

truck looks good, it will look great with some 33's!!!

Shane ran 35's and just a body lift with a torsion crank... It doesn't look bad, but doesn't perform all that well offroad. I think it's sweet looking. But don't use those keys. Your front end will need new components soon there after. TRE's, Ball Joints, alignment issues...

Dude, forget the new keys, just tighten down the stockers. Mine maxed out at 6 full turns. Started out at 33 5/8" (from ground to top of front fender flare), was able to get it to 35.9" or something like that. Makes the truck look SOOO much better with it level. Looks meaner, and I havent even put my BL or 33's on yet.

After


Next to the neighbors 2001 XLT 4x4 4.0 Manual (all 3 of them are... Mine is in the middle)




The Picture doesn't show a whole lot, but the truck does sit at a slightly different angle than the stock white one.


And, sitting next to my friends (leaning...) avalanche... My Ranger'll kick that trucks *** all over the place if we ever go off-roading together lol.
I hope that helps! Happy modding :)

Truck looks good but I agree with others ditch the keys and just crank your bars.
