    Finally got around to removing my 3" body lift and installing new body mounts. Body lifts had a time and place, but it ain't the 80's anymore /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif The cutting starts tomorrow to make sure there isn't any sheet metal in the way of the tires. So 4" lift and 35" tires, sounds good to me /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif This is the start of my 4x4 projects this year, next is winch install, and am real close to ordering a 10 point cage from s&w.

    I went 5" (4" + 1" zero rates) and will be running 35s...fenders shouldn't need trimmed but I'm gonna do it anyway because I think trimmed fenders look

    actually I have zero rates in the rear, so thats another 1", and I'll probably add them in the front.

    the front will likely need to be trimmed, especially if you run without a sway bar, I cut up my tires before I trimmed the fenders and that was with 7"'s of lift. I kinda like the cutting anyways, lets people know this isn't just another pavement pounder, built for the purpose of actually 4 wheeling. I also want to keep the center of gravity as low as possible, so small lift, more cutting /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
