The J10 tires are 33x12.5. I am going to measure the tires once I finish the install and see what they are at with the height.

I am taking a break from the install to eat and will get back on it. Got to do the rear install still.

They will come soon enough. Taking another break. Working on the a-arm right now and then the rest of the rear suspension should be done.

After that is adjust the track bar, discos, torque everything to spec and test drive.

Ok, here are some picture of it about 90% done. Still have to install the track bar, discos, and torque stuff down but I am tired and am going to call it a night. Will go finish it tomorrow morning.

Thanks guys!

It is 5" front and 4.5" rear. My old lift was 3".

And yep, I have all adjustable arms.

I will get more pictures tomorrow once I finish it and can get it outside.
