Now I just need to figure out how I can afford a lift and sneak it on there without the family noticing...

don't forget about an alignment, unless you want to wear those tires out real fast and get bigger ones :)

Hopefully getting bigger tires after Christmas and. I have an allignment scheduled for Wed., the same time as getting the Exhaust put on and the tires rotated and a brake adjustment. I test drove it around the block after cranking the t-bars and it hasn't moved since then.

I have a quick question. Lets say I crank the t bars 2 inches, and the tires get out of alignment. Then I decide to crank the bars back down 2 inches. Will the tires go back into alignment, or will they still be out of alignment from when I cranked the t bars?

I would very much like to do that, but I'd have to rebuild my rear bumper and get brackets made for my WAAG Bar. Unless I sold the WAAG Bar and bought the BL.... You wanna help me put it on?

Not to thread jack, but how hard is it to install a 3 inch body lift? I have been thinking of putting one in, and Im not sure if I have the technical savvy to put one in, even though my dad would be helping me out, who has a fair amount of knowledge about vehicles.

how did you level it out? is it just like a trial and error? or did you count the turns or what? and will it stop turning when there maxed? i was thinking about going til there maxed then come back a few turns.. would that help from wearing very quickly? also how can you tell when your torsion bars are worn? sorry noob lol

I haven't leveled it out yet. I will be ordering an AAL to level it out. It will stop turning when it's maxed.

I sold the WAAG bar already, sorry. I was planning on using it and some other money for a lift, but I will be using it for gear installation and the AAL.
After Christmas I should be getting it leveled out with the AAL, Getting my 4:10's put in and some 32's or 33's.

Jack up the front end so the tires are off the ground. turn the bolt to the desired level(all the way in my case). Lower the truck from the jack, drive it aroud for a few minutes(around the block will do the trick) and then go get it alligned or it will eat up your tires.

looks good. You can also get some new torsion keys and get an additional 3" of lift.
