    I got some pics of my truck on the new lift posted up now. Here is a list of all the new parts I installed: Front: 8 inch Skyjacker springs, Skyjacker Nitro shocks, ORD Swaybar Disconnect, and ORD Steering brace. Rear: ORD Shackle flip, ORD Zero Rates Springs, Tuff Country Add a Leafs, Skyjacker brake line, and Skyjacker Nitro shocks. Everything is working great so far except the front driveshaft is a little short and the steering is a little funny but that will all be fixed at once when I put my Dana 60 in with crossover. I should have some 37 inch tires mounted this week, if not then next week, and ill post some new pics with them on. I would post them here but it keeps screwing up so heres the link to the site with all my pics: http://chevytruckworld.tenmagazines.com/mygallery.ten?id=5340 Tell me what you think everybody!

    That looks great. It is hard to believe that they still exist with only 50,000 original miles.

    That's a good looking truck :waytogo:

    How much lift in the middle pic with the 35's ?

    How much backspacing on the new rims and how much $$ ?

    What changes did you have to make to go to the 8 inch lift ?

    Actually you missed the newest pic, the last one you put up is 8 inch lift on 35's, my new pics have the 37's on. I wish I could figure out how to post a pic lol. The middle pic is 6 inch lift on 35's. The wheels in the middle pic are American Racing Outlaw II's that my cousin is buying from me this week along with my old 35's. My new wheels are 16x10 Pro Comp 1069's, I think they cost about $530. To get the 8 inch lift I put Skyjacker 8 inch springs in the front and installed a shackle flip, Zero rate springs, and add a leafs in the rear, which actually makes it a little over 7 inches of lift for the rear.
