    Do I want to run my new 40 TSL's with the 8" lift I've got on the truck now, or do I want to take it down a few inches, cut the fenders, and let it flex? Give me your suggestions on what works for you. And if it involves taking the 8" kit off, the springs will be for sale. Oh yeah, it's 8" front AND rear springs.

    I need good flex on the rocks. Sounds like a drink /forums/images/icons/grin.gif . I don't think the 8 incher's will cut it.

    Here is a pic of mine with 6" lift and 39.5" swampers

    On my web page is a video of me going over the Golden Crack and cutting the hell out of the front tire. Going to move the axle forward and a body lift for this.

    If I do cut my fenders, it's probably going to be like yunit or Mr. Fox's hack job.
