Well, I have not finished my lift ( I have the 3" springs on, but the 1-1/2 from spacers/shackles is still on the bench). But I couldn't wait any longer a few weeks ago and I took my rig on a trail ride with a local club with 33" tires on only 3" of lift. I kept the sways connected, and bypassed most of the tough stuff, but at least I got out in the sunlight
Here's me waiting for the line to move.
And here are a few others: I actually did hit SOME of the rocks, I just didn't have a photographer with me and these were the only shots anybody got of me.
With the 33x9.5 BFG AT-KO's on stock rims I can turn lock to lock and not rub. (Now there's Less Than 1/8" between the rubber and the LCA, but there IS daylight between them.)
With skipping the bigger stuff and being carefull, I only rubbed a few times while pointing down hill, and turning at the same time. I rubbed in the center of the rear of the front inner fender.
I bought adjustable front spacers, and 1.5" lift schackles. So the front will be fine either way; I just hope I don't need any more in the back to clear the rubber once I start really flexxing.
- Can't wait for the rest of the lift; weather and work schedule permitting, that will happen tomorrow
