    I am not sure about the lift, when I bought the truck 3 years ago it looked like it had maybe a 2 1/2" lift, then when I added the winch the front got too soft so I added a leaf to the front. I can't lift it anymore because it won't fit in my garage, because of that I decided to cut the front fenders to fit the 35's. I cut a big chunk out of the inner fender as well and it actually stuffs the tire really nice, I haven't been able to get it to rub yet.

    If it is 2.5 inches of lift, that's exactly my plan for later on...35s and 2.5 inches of lift. Thanks for posting the pic, gives me a good visual on how it will look. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thank you. While I was preparing mine to send to the painter I saw pictures of your truck and it really inspired me. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
