3" BL, 33's, wheels installed (pics)

Front:



Rear:



Side: (looks kinda bad because the rear bumper was not put back on when I took the pic).



--

All in all, took about 8 hours to do...By no means would I consider that an easy job...and the pictures in the PA instructions are pretty bad.

I had to get 4 bolts, 8 washers, and 4 nuts because I couldn't find any in the kit to put the rear bumper back into place...but the brackets that the kit came with relocated everything nicely.

Looks good, now you need gap guards to hide the space under the bed

Thanks guys. Yeah I've never been a fan of the clear corners, but I plan on maybe giving the tails one or two light passes with that nightshade stuff.

Also, I was going to remove the spare tire, but that part you stick in there was missing lol, so I'm just going to remove it one of these days.

I'm going to also get some 3/4" hose to insulate that AC line that hits the alternator just incase...slice it down the middle and zip tie it in place.

Future plans: Repaint grill, repaint front bumper, sand down lower part of doors and bedline or repaint (haven't decided yet). I have to buff out my driver side bedside because someone (must have been a big white van) rubbed against it pretty good about a week ago some time during the night infront of our town house.

I've also got some issues with rust patches on the roof which I plan to sand down and repaint -- although one rust spot goes under the windshield molding so I'm contemplating what I want to do with that. Other than that, she's in good shape.

Oh yeah I still want to replace all my fluids -- I have some royal purple saved up for the diffs, get some new tranny fluid in her, maybe extend the breathers on the axles...and replace the fuel filter.

lol just realized in the second picture you can see my wheel chocks if you look closely. I strongly suggest against using rotors as chocks, but they were nearby.

lol nice man. I'm thinking of giving the torsion bars a little crank -- maybe an inch lol.

Where'd you get that skidplate, that doesn't look like the factory ones.
