i have 33x10.5 on mine and it looks just fine. not only that, since they are narrow they have less wind resistance- better mileage. to each is own though. i'll take a pic at some point today or tomorrow to show you

well, ive never done anything like this and im learning as i go. the rear end was pretty easy!

i guess hard is relative. its not physically hard, just very tedious. not knowing the names of all the parts is probably what gives me the most trouble. plus the sheer number of parts doesn't help either lol. i started at 8 and finished up at 5 with plenty of breaks in between.

Yeah... I know what you mean... It's all about following your instructions if you don't know what goes where...

We did shane's with no instructions lol

Yeah, It's like with a bodylift.. i am pretty positive, that after doing mine the first time fully alone at 6 and a half hours.. I could bang one out in 3 hours if someone else is there to give a hand.

its all about the experience, and it teaches you stuff you didnt know about under your truck. Which is the MAIN reason I do everythign myself =)
