    Pics of my 88 Jimmy with the 6\" lift and 36\'s

    First I would like to say thanks for everyones help with this. I know I asked some newbie bluebie questions, however I allways got a good answer and I really appreciate that. Also...sorry for the parking lot poser pics, I just got this finished on Wednesday so I havent had a chance to try it out yet offroad /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Its a 6" all spring RC lift with ORD greasable shackles, hydros, SS braided brake lines and 36x14.50x16 STS on 16x10 Chrome Trackers. Still have the factory 10 bolts but Im working on locating the 14 bolts.

    BTW....I signed up for a year membership, as soon as paypal goes thru I will no longer be a blubie /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Man that looks GOOD!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I almost put those tires on my crew cab but at the last minute I chickened out and went with 35" BFG's. I see now I should have gone with the STS's, next time. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    How do you like the tires? Are they radials or bias? Are they quiet, good in rain?

    I have to say, it looks great. You nailed the stance. Looks really good. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    From these far away day time pics it doesn't look sagged in the rear. It looks awesome, now you just need to cut the fenders slap some 42s on some 1 tons and put them under there. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
    Looks great the way it is though /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thanks guys /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    The tires are the radial STS, they ride great especially in the rain, they have a center tread groove that reminds me of aquatreads and they throw up a helluva spray. I had these on my old Z71 before I sold it and bought the Jimmy. This is my daily driver (100 miles round trip) so I like an all terrain, but I may switch to TSL radials when these wear out. They have about 10k miles on them right now. Also, they still have that swamper hum which is fine by me /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
