You may wanna take up some of the slack in those brake lines. Looks like they could get snagged on something.

...and please take those rims back! lol
Thanks!

Yeah, I plan to run the brake lines differently so they aren't just hanging there.

You don't like my wheels?

I think you'll change your mind with the full truck shots. I like them myself, but like everything not everyone will.

They are from James Duff. They are supposed to be made for a 4" lift, but they are much longer than needed. I plan to mount them differently, which will take up the slack. They are good quality though.

Yeah, I did not want them that long, but they work. The drop bracket delete will help alot, and then I just plan to run them a little differently from the top to take up the slack. I'm not sure how long they are though.

Upon further interrigation of the pics, It looks like someone joined me in the replacing all Superlift bolts with Grade 8. KLC, you've joined me with the too long of bolts on crossmember club too! lol.

Guilty as charged, the lengths for the crossmember bolts listed on the instruction sheet are too long. I'd rather have them a little too long than too short anyway.

Me too. I just don't like the digging out of the seaweed and grass and sticks out of 'em when I eventually clean the underside of the truck. lol.

I think I went 1.5" long? when 1.25 would be perfect? Or maybe it was 1.25 and 1 would be perfect. Blah. lol.

Can't wait for full truck daytime pics.
