More bumper pics, new off-road lights, spindle lift

Just posting a couple new pics up of the pickup.

Just added the off-road lights, they are 100w each and I also installed my spindle lift in the front. I have rear shackles coming for the rear to bring it up a little.

I know i need bigger tires! but as most know, those suckers are cheap. But i do have my eye out for a set of 33s and 15x10s.

Looks great! The stance will be great once the back end is up and level!

Awesome man! I like it a lot! I like how you kept the upper bumper piece on there instead of taking it off like everyone else does. Looks way clean! Good work.

i'd like some glass up front, wish they made a 34" tire that wasn't stupid expensive or a style of super swamper. i'm torn between 35s and 33s!

It'll tend to take a landing better, and also handles better on the dirt. When i go wheelin in CA, we do shift a few times while running the trails. It helps


and THANKS! everyone else, like my 'ol Ranger these days. Hair over 60k old now, runnin well.

Looks really good Mike! I wouldn't do 15x10's, your gonna kill wheel bearings and stuff jumping with them and you'll probably rip off the flairs with them too. I'd do a 15x8 with a 33" tire.

When I was looking at all the long travel kits and stuff I posted on DR asking about the 15x10s since thats what Ive got and they all said to stay away from them. Read up and post on DR, you'll prob learn a lot.
