so... its back on the road and looking good! apperently every tire place within hours of me is closed on sunday... so im still on 33's untill tomorrow after work. but it still looks ok, but it looks out of proportion slightly. rear bumper isnt on yet. the bolts were to annoying so i said f*** it, i can wait for another day. so some minor details to work out still but will be done within the week.

*on a side note, to anyone who has done their own body lift..... my hat comes off to you. by no means was it a hard job, there was just so many little things involved. i can honestly say i will prob never do one again.*

Have fun with the bumper..Took me hours doing it by myself. Had to pry bend and even cut some of it off. Be a good idea to have a helping hand.

On a side note that thing looks HUGE, even on the 33's.

So pumped to see it on 35's man. You have one of my favorite rigs and you live close to me so I can always come check it out. Im thinking of putting a 3" body lift on mine to, but sticking with 33's for awhile. I like the taller look just cant afford tires and gears and broken parts right now

used to know a guy who worked at that kaltire, it's on hiway 10 isn't it?

how high was the grill to the ground before the lift? i'm going to guess you are going to gain 1 more full inch... no more

we need more pictures though! from many angles!
