you can get away with making no changes to track bars or other steering compents. 3inchs you are going to want to start considering maybe an adjustable track bar, extended endlinks.

No a 2" won't hurt anything. Just lift it already!

2" lift

Easy arlo, at the moment i'm sitting in close to 2 feet of snow and have to work in the driveway. It's snowing and will be for some time to come, 2 weeks, a month, until it feels like stopping, so this is a good time to do a little research.

I turn wrenchs for a living and doing the jobs not a problem, ... laying in the snow is. In order to make this as easy and fast as possible when i do it, i came here to see what everybody else has done, that way i can spend my time in the rig, .. not under it. Any help toward the posts i need makes it better for me and the others who are interested in doing the same, and for that matter, any help finding the best deal on a good budget 2" lift package would be very much appreciated, thanks, blue.

By the way, ... nice spidergear, ... theres a cure for that now.

Was regearing my front axle, opened up the front diff and found chunks of metal hanging out in there. Shreaded the pinion shaft spider gears. Just replaced them with another set of spider gears. In the rear I removed the stupid spider gears all together

So what did you use to lock the rear up? And where is louisville? I get out to the western slope once or twice a year, good wheeling between baggs and the million dollar highway. blue

Aussie locker in the rear. Louisville is ~15 miles North of Denver or 4 miles South of Boulder.
