Lift finished! Pic

Well I finally got my lift finished at 11pm last night. Got alignment today and could not be happier. Still gotta pull mudflaps off but im really happy with the fabtech spindle lift. Tires are 31" BFG M/Ts, truck handles them pretty good for a 4 banger and 3.73s. Next project is to hunt down an 8.8 rear and swap it in. Here's a few pics, crappy camera phone. This weekend I was gonna go fishing and will get some better pics of the truck!

Well besides swap in a 8.8 I dont know? Go bigger! I'll prob sell it and get a 4x4 ranger and lift it big. I'm a poor college kid though so we'll see. It's fun just working on em.

Performance wise all I have is kn intake and flowmaster 40 on it. I am very suprised how well it does, it's honestly not that much more sluggish then when it was stock. It has 3.73s in rear. Im starting the search for an 8.8 with 4.10s to swap in the rear.

Ditch the flag mirrors
Get yourself 01-03 color matched EDGE front and rear bumpers
ditch the mudflaps

Lift and tires look great BTW
