BB + BL +new wheels and tires

Just wanted to share what my new setup looks like. To keep this post technical...i'll share how I relocated my 3rd brake light.

I bought 4 3 inch long bolts and 8 1" nylon spacers at Lowes's and put the spacers under the brake light assembly. Worked like a charm. Below are pics of my new setup.

Looks good, tires look good not hanging out past the flairs alot. I used the stock bolts with mine as they were very long and put 10 thick washers on each bolt to raise my brake light up, and i had to go higher as i have 33x12.5 on mine.. good job..

Are you saying you have 2 spacers on each front coil?
I ask about doing the same thing. My local 4x4 guys said that's a NO-NO...can you get a shot of the two spacers on one side.
thanks


by the way, your set up looks nice

HMMMM.... looks like the date is set wrong on my camera. Oh well. I just took some pics for you.
This is the front with one 1.75 inch spacer stacked on top of one 0.75 inch spacer. The stuff you see inbetween them is just a little grease i used to hold them together when i was putting it all together.

enjoy!!!

Not bad, I think I'm going with 3" rusty's springs in the front when I get a winch and a BL/MML when I do mine though. Along with new OME shocks and I should be pimping hahaha. 33's will come soon after(Kumho's cant beat em for the $).

I like the idea of a 2 1/2 or 2 3/4 inch spacer in the front, but not spacer stacked on top of spacer. Does anyone know if a 2 3/4 is made by anyone?
And would it effect the RE shocks, that are built for the 2 inch spacer?

Nice set up, I'm going to eventually do the same thing, except I think I'm going to use the OME kit. How does that setup ride?

Looks like the weight of your winch is pulling down the front end muscle-car-style.
