Trailing vids

Headed out to a new trail with a friend. Crappy cell phone vids but they're vids none-the-less! Water in one of the vids you can sort of see was over the liscence plate most of the time and above the headlight for a split second. These were all in 2wd.

Enjoy!

Buddy said the exhaust was under water

Headlight at around 10secs

This spot was VERY awkward. Went down 2 feet, then back up with a big boulder in the middle (hit my skid plate), then back down to the bottom of that hill covered in mud and boulders. All this, was within 10' so the hills were super steep. Coming back I was super scared of ripping the front end off. Anyways, onto the vid.

I'm just going by what my buddy said lol but it makes sense. Lift is in the future but for now it'll be Prekey, shackles, Preblock THEN BL. I just have no idea how to go about extending the brake lines.. 33's even later on when my 265's wear out.

I would just do a torsion bar crank and shackle's. DONT do the torsion keys..there junk!!! and what is preblock? and why would you have to extend your brake lines?

I have my bars cranked right now and AAL. But the keys are the stock ones from 07 and older models, they lift 08+ about 1.5". The block is the same concept as the keys, 07 and older model block are 1" higher.

Dont you have to extend brake lines with a BL?

the only thing a body lift does is LIFT the BODY from the frame any nothing else goes up everything stays the same but you will need to extend some stuff like fuel neck, rad etc but that is all included with the kit(or should be) but there is no need to extend the brake lines because there is no change is suspension height.
