Icon14 Finally joined the Body Lift bandwagon

Well this weekend, my neighbour and I put the 3" BL in my truck... Love how it looks compared to before...
This is what I started with:






And here is a couple of "in progress" shots:







Half way done!!!




Finished product:






I still need to get gap guards



Let me know what you think!!
The exhaust doesn't look as bad as I thought it would.
Back bumper is a little crooked, but we got it as straight as the brackets would allow...

Thanks!! Yeah 33's are on my to-do list and of course different rims once the stock tires are shot.
I bought the grill on ebay...
Not too sure if I like it or not though.... Its a t-rex billet grille

Maybe its the pictures but it looks like a small 3" lift. Still looks good just seems smaller then most do for some reason.

Maybe I just need more coffee.

New rims and tires eventually




Part of the reason it may look smaller is because of the angle of the pictures. It is a drastic change in real life.

Congrats! Looks good for sure. Some tires and flares would dress it up real nice. How long did the install take you? And was your front end lower before you started? On my 95 the front is white a bit lower than the rear and I'm curious how just a 3'' BL would look.

Didn't raise the front bumper?

I take it back. It's raised. Looks good.
