    Re: my new 33\'s

    I'm anxious to see some pics...I just picked up my 33s and can't wait to get the old 31s off. I'm running 3.08s as well so, again, anxious to see the difference. Did you have any rubbing? I've got no lift.

    I'm up to number 4! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
    Number 5 I have thought about nipping the front corners
    and Number 6 3/4 ton stuff with 3" springs (replacing 3.08s for 4.10's /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif)
    and instead of Number 7's locker I'm wanting an Auburn
    Man I'm shooting up the list! /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    Re: my new 33\'s

    Probably not the right place for this question (don't want to hijack the post...maybe you can PM me)...how did you do your 2 inch lift? Did you buy a lift kit? I've never done a lift, read a lot on here about it though, but I'm still a bit confused as to what my options are for a 2 to 2.5 inch lift. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
