add me to the lifted club...

just picked her up. got my body lift installed, and i love it. just need some 33s now. also exhaust needs fixed and gap guards for the back. my front bumper dosent seem as sturdy as it was before, anyone else have this issue?

looks good for some reason i thought you were already lifted ... also if youre still on 4.10s i wouldnt reccomend going bigger than 32's without a regear due to the loss in fuel economy.

I have 33's and 4.56's :-)

But really I would have had 4.10's but the gears in the used axle I bought were toast so I went with 4.56's

youll be fine with 4.10's!

On the bumper if you would have seen the brackets there thin as heck so yes it can only support the weight of bumper and valance your prerunner bar is to much add supports to it or make thicker steel brackets

aight ill shut up about the need of a regear ... i just remember jeweler saying he went 33s on the black truck and when he got the red fx4 he went 32s cause he felt like he lost too much power

bah it isnt even noticeable with 33's. go to 35's then you have a small problem



and it looks good man, fill up them fenderwells!

and yeah the bumper isnt gonna be as sturdy. the brackets that are used with the BL to mount them suck. just get a custom bumper built

You know there's a member on RF here, that makes custom THICKER brackets for sale..... I think I just might know his name.

I also am the one with the bumper supports on my body lifted bumper that support my fabtech bar, that come off the back of the steel portion of the bumper and are welded to the frame. But at the bumper, the bolts are removable, so if I have to take the bumper off, it's just one extra nut/bolt per side and boom, it's off.. But still have extreme extra strength. People can stand on it without it moving now.

What are you looking for pics of? My brackets I make, or my support bars? The people that run my brackets, don't usually need to have support bars.
