    Yea but what I did to mine would only take you about a day or so...it took me 4 or 5 days over 3 weeks. And I'm wondering if I screwed someting up or not and worried about driving it to work tomorow /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Mine moves at the same speed as the Kubota 4x4 tractor pushing it in and out of the barn...and probably won't be much faster with the 6.2 I'm installing/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    The only lift I did was the 1" ORD set, but as shot as my bushings were I'm sure the poly ones helped. I've still got zero rates to put on to loose the rear droop /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    The tires are 33/12.5/15 Pro-Comp A/T's on 15x8 and they measure a full 33". I'm not like the other people on here, I don't know how to fix it when I break it and it's a daily driver so I figure I'll keep it mild for now /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    Before it was on 32's that measured 31" so its sitting about 2.5" taller. (Did I mention the old body mounts were shot)

    I haven't exactly broke any records for speed on my latest epic project either. Not that I care to either...I'm more concerned with doing it as best I can afford to. That means waiting sometimes.../forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif (I hate waiting...)

    Also I have the truck in a friends barn which is really good for what I'm doing, but it's a 30 mile drive. I also cannot work Sundays there out of respect for my friends parents and their beliefs. That is a small price to pay for a good place to work on my truck...but cuts my available time to work on it in half.

    I'm sure you did a fine job on your truck...it looks very nice.

    I checked your profile for more spec's on it but i guess you haven't updated it in a while. So spill big guy...lift? Tires? We want details...
