Bars are cranked. Rear Load leveling shocks lifted the rear almost 2 inches. Then on top of that a 1 inch bodylift

That's really what I wanted. I just couldn't afford it this time around. Couldn't find anything under 850. Hopefully next time I buy tires ill be lifted more and get a nice set of 33s.

Dang that sucks. I'd hate to tell you I paid 600 for my 285 nittos before I was lifted so I won't tell you. Looks good though

Great price on the nittos. I paid 500 for my 31s nittos. I hated them though. Never stayed balanced. Cheapest I could find on the nittos in 285s was 800. Total ripoff

ya thats one of the reasons I went with the nittos but after about 5,000 miles I started having problems with them. I must have gotten a bad set or something but I shoulda know it was gonna be bad when it took 6oz to balace them out. No 31 should need that much weight.

They dont stick out past the fenders maybe an inch sucked in I would guess.
