    So do you have any idea what your bumper height is gonna end up at? You know even with those truck plates on what VA considers a passenger vehicle, max bumper height is gonna be 31" for you. I imagine they are pretty strict up there in NOVA...

    yea theres definitely going to be trimming, im going to try to make it as clean as possible tho. i bought the 8" springs before i knew anything. eventually i will go with 4" lift 56ers and 4" shackle flip in the rear, then 4" 52s up front. wish i had done that the first time around....im still learning

    Just be careful even with small tires on it you could be at risk... In my years working at the shop Ive seen a few trucks failed because of "suspension alterations".. Some inspectors use this part of the code to fail trucks with big lifts..'No part of the original suspension system of a motor vehicle shall be disconnected to defeat the safe operation of its suspension system.' Just watch out for the pricks that look for stuff to fail.. :wink1:

    Just so you know they cannot reject your truck for being to tall . There is no height limit for state inspection
