lift pics

I got the lift completed a while ago but some of the before pics where on another computer so it took a while to get them posted .

First i did shackles and t crank which gave me an inch . Then i did a 1" body lift for another inch. Total cost of lift about 150 dollars , cut up knuckles , alot of cursing.

stock with 265/75/16 tires


shackles on low setting ,1" t bar crank, 1 " BL



shackles on low setting 1" t bar crank....NO BODY LIFT


stock


1.5 " t bar crank i lowered it cuz the ride sucked


stock


shackles on low setting ... high setting is to rough for daily driving but takes 10 minutes to switch it before offroading.


shackles on high setting with no crank and no BL






Hopefully now i don't see as many of these cuz my step bars are all torn up on the bottom so are the skid plates etc




the total lift for me was 2 inches but you could make it 2.5 pretty easily by cranking the bars more and keeping the shackles on the high setting but the ride gets a little bit more rough.

also one should note many trucks will be higher in the back cuz my camper shell compresses it about an inch or more.

So far i have zero problems with the lift except it needs about 4 more inches and 33's !

Looks nice! Good job, I'm still trying to figure out how I can get away with the 1" bl and not have my twin shifters bind up.

Yeah bob says that the transfer case shifter will have problems but you should be cool on the other shifter. I had to trim away some of the bezel for second, third, and reverse, but your interior is different i think. someone around here has a solution for the transfer case shifter and a 3 " bl but i forget who it was .

You mean the gap? That can be easily covered up.
