Lift is done-ish... dont like my rims/tires though

Well decided around midnight to start the lift... finished at 3am with spindles up front and lift blocks in the back.



I am looking for some different rims and new 33's right now. Debating doing fiberglass fenders, tube bumper just needs to be welded on later this week. Traction bars and chevy shackles are going on probably early next week.

Nah... his wheels look good....lol

I'm not sure what these are and I didnt even take the measurements but I think they are a 15x12 with very low backspacing. They just look really funny to me.

I got the wheels and tires for $150 so I couldn't pass that up... I probably should have

Looks awesome! It appears that your front brake disc is even with the back of the rim. LOL

I'm not diggin the wheels, but why did you put it back to stock and then lift it again? I was dissappointed when you put it back to stock. You get the Mike seal of approval.

Spindles were easy to do because this is the 3rd lift spindle I've had on my truck, not including the camburg stuff.

My room mate came home, looked at the tires, looked at me and said jokingly... "so are we going to do this now?" So I said ok...lol

Yup....I like to change it up every once in a while. At that time it was better for me to have the stock truck.
