    Dan, is this picture before or after you removed the 3" body lift for the 1" ORD body lift?
    Before or after?
    I'm trying to decide whether I want to run an 1" or 3" body lift to clear the 38" Swampers I have in mind. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Wes-

    Look in at the front bumper on the driver's side... you'll notice the silver spacer... which is ORD's 1" lift. I personally don't like the 3" kits because it allows the body to have too much leverage on the mounts/bolts.

    Just my .02! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Oops! /forums/images/icons/blush.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Figured it would be faster to get a reply from you instead! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    So the total amount of lift is 7", correct?

    Correct. And I've got 36's with the fenders MILDLY trimmed, and I get close to rubbing on the trails!

    After viewing the pics again, I think I'm gonna go with 6" springs, 1" zero rates on front and rear, and 1" ORD body lift for a total 8" lift.

    Should fit 38" Radial Swampers just fine, but if necessary, I will trim the corners of the fenders where needed. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
