Need some advice for the truck!

I was thinking that I need some new mods. I am not into all the interior stuff...and I pretty much just want more lift for some 35's...sooo..

Should I get a body lift with 35" BFG All Terrains...

or..

Leave it alone....

Oh boy, well everyone here is going to tell you to lift it, but it all depends what's important to you...

looking at your sig, it looks like most everything is already covered, so go for the 35's if you have the cash.

I vote leave it as is, I think the truck looks very good that way. If you wheel it, I'd stay away from the 35s because of the wear you'll be putting on various parts.

how much do you drive the truck? want your gas mileage to go down?

you gunna correct the speedo? regear?
these are all things that will either help you out..spend more money..

or not do it..and have less power..less mpg..speedo off..

Yeah, I think that's what I am going to do. I have had my truck for about 6 years now and I think it needs something new...

Kasey I live a couple hundred yards from you and you haven't even asked me yet? You're breaking my heart! Must be sociology class gettin' to you.

Really though, unless you feel compelled to do something to your truck, I think you should leave it as it is! Your 3.0 will have a hard time turning 35s without regearing, and I think your truck looks pretty good as it is!

If you do decide to lift again, let me know. I can help you out with install and cutting and welding those grill guard brackets.

Well they're not on yet! You parked in MY part of the parking lot today, and I noticed the funny autozone lights =)

Do those autozone lights still work? I may want them for the samurai.

nice, i love the stance of yours now ... plus you did it right in the first place ... suspension lift for 33s rather than just a bl .... so it looks awesome right now imo ... but the double lift is awesome too haha ... id be fine with both so sorry im not much help lol


and zach i think ppl were telling her that a double lift is a bad idea cause majority of places will not install a BL with a suspension lift for liablity reasons ... to top heavy is what they say i think ...
