4" TC EZ ride front springs and rear blocks
Much better! That's one sweet looking ride. Looks vaguely familiar to mine, shown here. Mine is now sitting on 35's. I guess I need to get a few newer pics posted.
Errr.....blocks? I didn't think that anyone did that anymore.
Big difference, looks great.
what size tires are those?
ride looks sweet by the way.
nice looking burb that the way they should have come from the factory
Beauuuuuuuuuuuutiful, my favorite style wheels also!
wow, looks good man
Seriously. I thought that that was a big tabo and only for big dumb show trucks.
Um no, blocks are completely fine as log as they aren't two feet tall.
FYI, most 3/4 and 1 ton 4x4 pickups have blocks in the rear. My '01 Dodge Cummins 4x4 has a 4" block in the rear. I wouldn't put them on a hardcore trail only truck but a 4" and smaller is fine for the average weekend wheeler and driver. Most show truck guys do use blocks because they look good, are a cheap way of achieving lift, and doesn't need to be super strong. Makes sence to me.
The tires are 285/75/16. Im going to be putting 315/75/16 on very soon.
I'm using 2" blocks on my rig. I see nothing wrong with it since it doesn't give me axle wrap and I am too broke to buy new 3" lift 64" springs for my setup. By using blocks, a home-made shackle flip, lowering shackles and used 64" chevy springs I have a very cheap, very effective lift for my K5. Blocks are fine if they're under 4" and not made from aluminum.
I spy an RDC steeker on your Sub.
