awwwwwww yes but there were no tree's involved! they can cause MAJOR harm..

i would leave the blocks in there....wont hurt anything....but you should wait and see were your front is when you get it done before you decide for sure on leaving them or taking them out...

i vote to remove them.

you can always install them if you think its too short later. but its freaking tall, its so tall that some 49s would prolly fit under there.

49's i doubt it.......gotta consider the bedsides......now if he flares them or gets flared fenders like the front, then maybe 44's but not with stock bedsides....

i say when you get it back in the garage, we put the 37's back on the rear, and jack the front up till its level. then decide if you want to keep the blocks or not.
remember you will have ALOT more flex now, front and rear. gonna need more room for the tires on up-travel.

if we do it during the DAYLIGHT, we could get a decent pic of you standin next to it also

I would put it at max lift. Seriously.

You'll regret it later man, I know I would. But I ride in fl, all there is is FLAT mud... No hills to worry about.

I would do shackle and block, then make it sit 1" lower in the front!!! THat will be badass.

Right now, your rear is probably 5" higher than me. I have 12" gap in the rear right now. From top of tire to top of fender. that was with the bfg at's, it hasn't changed much with the mud terrains


edit: I'm 43" from ground to top of fender flare fully loaded down.
