Holy Crap! Well cleaning that up was fun. This kind of thing was the reason why this thread was closed before. I opened it up so people could post their lifts that didn't get a chance in the past. If conversations like this keep popping up, I am going to have to close the thread again, and most likely not open it back up again.

So lets follow the rules here guys. Keep this thread clean and only post up your lift setups.

Started off as a rough country 4.5" lift, the springs netted me at 6", RC nitro 3000 shocks, 3.5" leaf packs with another 1" of lift with BDS leafs, custom 1.5" shackle lift, overall about 5" of lift or a little more.

tires are 35x12.5x15 BFG KM2s on 15x8 Cragar Soft 8s.

ive trimmed up a good amount..tires rub up front, need to bumpstop.

overall i like this setup, cant wait to wheel with it!
