T Bar Crank + Shackles Finally, New pictures!

Finally cranked the front up an inch, and got 2 inches in the back from the shackles.

heres some nice pictures i took today.







Also iso ideas for me to do, as of now, paint rear axle. Tint Topper darker so you can't see in it. maybe nightshade tails lightly along with the 3rd brake light on topper.

what else guys?

Yeah, no nightshade. The cap will look real sweet with that dark tint. Sweet truck man.

i was going to body lift, but this is perfect how it is, it didn't rub at all before this, so i should be good on mild stuff.

and if i do lift, its gonna be a smaller SAS nothing huge.

Those tires look uncomfortably stuffed, but otherwise it looks good.
My suggestion is to re-balance the tires with the weight inside the wheels, spray the axles/hubs black where you can see in the center of the wheel, and use nicer lugnuts. Maybe center caps on the rear wheels?

Even with the torsion bars cranked a little, the front is going to compress to the same spot. It will still rub.
There rear should be slightly less likely to rub, but probably still will.

Great looking truck! Looks awesome with the topper, I know I love mine. I also agree that you shouldn't do a body lift, it looks perfect.
