    Now, the lift pics are all jumbled and not really good and some of them aren't even labled cause I forgot what I was taking a pic of [​IMG]. But there they are:

    Very, very niiice. I think it looks great just like that (with the 31s). Did the rough country lift come complete (w/arm and shocks) or did you have to buy anything else? I'm looking at a 6" Rough Country myself.

    Re: Well, I\'m finally riding high in my K5!!!!! Here\'s some pics....

    Ya....sorry, I had to steal your line [​IMG]. LOL!!!!

    The lift was very complete. It came with all the u-bolts and new washers and nuts, brake line brackets, shocks, bushings, arm, everything! You have to install the bushing in the shocks. It rides real nice! I was surprised at how well it rides. I messed up a tie rod end so I'll have to replace those. Also, I have real bad bumpsteer, but it's cause I need a drop pitman arm, but I think the 6" lift comes with that. I'm real happy with the lift. I put a superlift ez ride helper spring in the back cause I did blocks in the rear. As you can see, the truck is very level and the ride is nice. I'm very happy!!!!!

    Re: Well, I\'m finally riding high in my K5!!!!! Here\'s some pics....

    I damaged a tie rod end also.. trying to remove it from the Steering box... $32.00 for a moog replacement.. Not too shabby..
    I recommend only using Moog replacement parts... what good quality... and my steering has dramatically improved once I aligned the steering wheel and lock to lock turning...
    So now you want to go up Six inches? Damn.. you're just like I am.. I want to go a total of 8 inches with 38's...
    And I thought I was happy w/ just 4... [​IMG]

    Very cool, Did anything give you a hard time? The pics of the stocker flexed out are pretty cool to.

    I'd like to know what kind of camra your useing, My pics never come out looking that good! All of my pictures look like I took them from under 3 ft of water.

    NO, NO, NO!!!! 4 " is all I'm doing! [​IMG].

    Nothing really gave any real greif. The helper springs were the worst part, though not too bad.

    I'm using a digital camara from work that was about $800. [​IMG]. LOL!!! It's a Sony.

    Looks good , I tried to talk her into 35's and she said no go.Are you stickin' with the 31's or going to 33's? Some 33 10.5 BFG AT KO's would look sweet!

    D@mn skippy! No 35's yet. I'm definatly going 33's this time around. I'm leaning towards general mt's. I've got to replace some tierod ends first [​IMG].

    The whole me being dirtier than the other two....well, first, I wear my dirt better than they do [​IMG]. Also, I used shop towels to wipe my hands off while they used their clothes. And I'm mad at them for that cause guess who got stuck doing the laundry....[​IMG]
