    Finally, never thought I'd see the day this thing got lifted. Now I need bigger tires. [​IMG]

    Re: 6\" lift

    I'm running Tuff Country 6" front springs with an Echobit flip in the back and an ORD zero rate in the back. The zero rate was also used to move the axle back after the shackle flip. I was afraid the stock rear springs were going to be sagged bad in the rear causing it to sit low, but it sits nice and level. It's got some vibes so the rear is probably going to have to be shimmed. Putting a spacer on the front shaft and the crossmember for the t-case might need to be trimmed so the front shaft dosn't hit it. Yes, those are 33s. They look even smaller than with no lift and the fenders cut! I'm going to be running custom grooved 38x12.50 TSLs. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I like your trim job, did you have to remove your inner fender to get the front fender trimmed that far? Looking good! /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    No, I didn't have to remove the inner fender at all.
