Body lift is a go

I got my tires and they look so sick. I have pictures in my truck but at the second i am to lazy to go get them. They are a little bigger than 31 inches but I think it will look fine.

I know i have read this a million times but this is all I need right. They even lowered the price more.

Yeah thats what you need, if you have a manual transmission you'll need the shifter extension too.

You need at least 32s but 33s would look better IMO

I dont think it looks to bad either. You can always get bigger tires when those wear out.

Taking the blocks out would drop you 2.5 inches, and lowering the torsion bars that much (if they will go) will eat your ball joints. So, pay $110 for a body lift, get .5 inch of lift. Either wait until you get bigger tires to lift, or just lift and get tires later, don't lower your suspension...

UHHH what. If I took the blocks out I would put a 1 inch block in and return the bars to normal and that would not wear out my ball joints. I just ordered a BL.

I was imagining running no blocks. I still don't think it looks bad enough to lower, but go for if you want.

It would look better with bigger tires, but it dont look terrible. I would rock it then buy bigger tires when those wore out.

Dunno running 31's on my body lift looks pretty good.. I do admit 32's would be nicer, but these tires are brand new, I'll wait till they wear out to get something bigger. On a coil sprung 2wd though..
