Got the itch...

... to play in the mud a little. Couldn't find much to get into, but here's pictures anyway. I should also mention that this is the first time I have been out in any mud or really even on a trail in about a year. That means also first time wheelin with the lift. Enjoy.

Oh, see if you can spot the new mod...

Looking good!

are those the stock shocks in the rear? I know nothing about shocks except that my superlift came with 4 new shocks which were about 4" longer than the stock ones.

How much are your TB's cranked?

Can you put a winch on that ARB bumper?

Also, it almost looks like you could fit some 35"s!

Nope, not the headlights, I've had them for at least two years. As for the crap, you see all the mud under the truck in the parking lot.

Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner! Haven't wired them up yet, but that's it.

Yes stock shocks.
T-bars are maxed.
I can put a winch on the bumper, just don't have the money for it.
I could fit 35's, but 32's and 3:55's are bad enough. I won't put 35's on unless I BL it someday. I'll go up to 33's w/ some BFG KM2's.

Your truck almost looks weird with a real lift, not as much frame showing. Almost everything else is bodylifted.

If I had done a BL I would have had to redo my front and rear bumpers, exhaust and sliders, it would have been more work than the suspension lift. Maybe some day I'll add a BL.
