New Mods!!!

Well i finally got around to cranking my Tbars...got about 1 3/4" lift out of it, i love how it sits now! After the Tbar crank i was expecting the ride quality to suffer, but i was surprised that it didnt really change at all. (sorry bout crappy pics)




Also i picked up my tires today, 285/75/16 Nitto Terra Grapplers, and ill be getting them mounted and balanced on monday....cant wait!!!!! picked them up from onlinetires.com for only $145 a piece and did local pick up so i didnt have to pay shipping!

LOL Seeing those pictures of the tires reminds me of how I was when I got mine. Except I took all kinds of pictures of them LOL Looks good though. Can't wait to see it once they're all mounted up.

Sway bar rub is nothing though. That's not hurting anything. It's metal, let it rub.

Put an ad on craigslist and see what kind of offers you get. Never know, you might be able to upgrade.

I've been thinking that when my tires wear out I would get the 295's and cram em in there with no body lift.

Do not do it. Even with my 3in BL I rub at times. I couldnt imagine them in there with no BL.

LOL You never know. I don't have rubbing now so I think I'd be ok. I have a good bit of time to think about it though so I'm not worried.
