normally not a fan of edges on the street wheels with out a drop but this still looks CLEAN. my brain says no dont like it the specs are wrong, but then my eyes deceive me and say its at a decent height and can stay like that.

flip your shackles and keys, probably get you close to where you want.

its only a 2wd with an open diff... no need for me to be going offroad plus I dont have any tow points... Im sticking to the pavement... plus I like keeping it clean and not have tree branch scratches all over it... just my way of thinking... I love lifted trucks but if its only 2wd then it needs to stay on the road.

Mud flaps will stay until I figure something else out with the exhaust... 275's + gravel = dented, scratched and chipped chrome and paint

and these are not Bullits

Looks decent. Still unfortunate about torsion bars though. Tires are way too small for the fenders. But still looks decent none the less.


I assume de-blocked and de-cranked? Got some wicked cool camber right now btw....typical of de-cranked trucks. Find yourself some '08+ keys and toss 'em in...good for a 1.5" or so drop on an 07 and older. Then flip the rear shackles. Do those are that's about another 1.5-2" of drop and it'd look alot better. Or do the axle flip and then install Belltech 6400 shackles to get you 3" drop.

After looking at it more I think you should of just leveled it out at the current height and bought a little bigger tires. I don't know that I'd want it any lower than it sits now. That's just me though...

Forgot say..... the wheels look EFFIN AMAZING!!! But a 25-26" tire does not belong on the truck...just looks out of place. Okay...I'm done with my nice friendly flaming. lol.

Tire/wheel combo is to small. Besides that it looks great.

when i had the 5in flip kit on the rear it looked great but if I go over a speed bump it would hit the fender... so Im trying to get a good livable height to it... Im hoping flipping the hangers and keys will do the trick, the wheels and tires look much bigger in person than in the pics... kinda odd for some reason.. guess thats what i get for using my moms digital camera

Only thing I'd do is, lower the back end and put some bigger tires on those sick Bullits.

1015002108.jpg?t=1287365381

no problem for me to drop it more Im just getting everyones opinions so pretty much its going to be like the pics I took today or like the picture above. Which im pretty certain everyone is going to lean towards the pic above lol.
