Looks good man, guess you didn't need any help. Get some 33's or body lift and 35's.

Looks nice! Glad you went with 33's. I also like the classic look of the AR23's.

YES!


It's very true....it's never big enough. Probably 3 months after I double lifted mine, I felt it was too small...still think it. Though at times, I think it's too big and wanna downsize it. It's a sickness. We're all additcted!

I thought I would want more height too, but I'm happy where I'm at. I would not want a bodylift anyway.

Did you get the front driveshaft?

drive shaft

No A friend of mine owns a drive shaft Company about 30 miles from me going to go down and make my own, Stopped by there a few weeks a go with a picture of the Sl shaft he laughed at me and said if the used slip yoke over there on the floor would work it would cost me about $30.00 not $400 and I said used was fine with me will post up some pics when I am down there

I'm not sure how his idea is going to cure what happens to these stock shafts when installing a Superlift/RCD. The rear CV joint on the shaft needs changed because that's what goes. Gets put into a bind being the differential is dropped down. Only way around it it using an adaptor to convert the CV bucket to a normal yoke.
