His truck stands at about 6' tall now, I'm about 5' 11", and it was a tad bigger than I am.

That sucks about the tread riser though.

I realize it's a typo... but I thought that, with my engineering background, I should point out to other readers here that painting a Fram oil filter will not render it into an actual, useful, oil filter -- it'll just be a painted piece of crap.

I didnt even put gap guards on my truck lol looks fine with the gap, I don't even notice it. I bought the stair runner so I'll probably make some eventually. Dood put those hellas on man they make the truck look much sicker, I want to get a set.

well, i put the Hellas on today.. i didn't wire them though i had a ton of crap to do for Management class so i will wire them tomorrow around 3. glad you guys like the truck.....began to wire the hellas and couldn't find out why they were not working...my friend pulled out the DMM (digital multi-meter) and we found what wire wasn't getting 12 volts and it was a damn fuse that they come with so i have to buy a new fuse and we will wire them up tomorrow

- Kumhos ride good...not too loud but still buzz i just hate how i washed it yesterday and the truck is filthy now lol its because they are wide but i like the tires....handle well even on the highway.

- I FOUND SOME STAIR RUNNER AT A HOME DEPOT IN NEW HAMPSHIRE! :-)

- Exhaust hanger will be fixed tomorrow and maybe ill put the bed liner back in if i feel up to it haha.

....oh and my gas mileage is pretty much the same...i don't drive like a true "[email protected]" anymore i drive like a normal person haha

I have a question about the body lifts. I have a set of 33x10.5x15 in the garage. I am waiting till I get a set of better rims to go with. Now i am thinking about buying the pl 3' Bodylift. My question is the radiator. I heard you have to lower it. I do not want the radiator anylower than it is nor do I want it exposed beyond the valance. Could you clue me in on what to expect fron this lift.
Your truck looks sick btw

The radiator stays in the same location as it is now, what gets moved is how it mounts to the body. Since you're lifting the body 3", you need to lower where the radiator sits in the body to keep it where it is. It doesn't change the location it is at from the stock setup.

You'd be raising it about an inch and a half from where it is now, so it may be about the same height as you.

99offroadrngr, did you have a compressor to use or did you do it with hand tools? Also do you remember what size the nuts for the body mount were? Mine are all rusted so I can't get a good read on size.

you dont have to lower the rad. you can just turn your plastic fan shroud upside down. here is a thread that has some pics.
