I know the Novak cable shifter is a great upgrade so I won't recommend against it, but I will say that I didn't have any TC shifter/linkage issues with my 1" body lift. I also did a 1" motor mount lift with it. Looks like a cool build, I'll be ordering a bunch of Metalcloak parts in the next few weeks as well. And with the MC fenders you really won't need a lift with only 33s and the BL, I'd just upgrade to some quality adjustable control arms. Metalcloaks or Currie/Savvy. Keep it up!

Also, pics of wolf dog?

OP, excellent color choice.
Whats it to you? It sounds to me some on here some are jealous of other's rigs or feel its their sole purpose in life to tell others what they need to do or don't do. I tend to think its a little of both. You might need to calm down some because I was just showing the guy and it would be no different if it was the other way around.

Actually, it's not jealousy, it's that we came in here for the OP's build. You have a beautiful rig as well and I'd love to subscribe to a build thread if you had one, but it gets cluttered with more than one poster with frequent pictures. That's all!

OP, I'm excited about this build!

So rarely do people start off with this kind of direction. Too often people just lift immediately before they get a direction and an idea of what they're doing both in terms of wheeling and wrenching and have to replace half of what they did when they either break it or outgrow it.

Armor up, good tires, and belly-up will all serve you well even as you start lifting later on. Looking forward to seeing how this goes!

Oh, and awesome on the lots of pictures!

Wow, someone got a little butthurt from a harmless comment. CrawlingForward is exactly right. Certainly not jealous. You just need a build of your own. And if it was the other way around I'd say the same.

I already have the 1" brown dog mml so I shoouldddd be ok with out the adjustable tc parts is what everyones saying.. I watched the rokmen video on how they installed a 1" body lift and 1" mml anyone else seen/installed and have advice besides they say to do one side of the body lift at a time and remove the whole motor mount in stead of fussing with ac compressor or something their in the way.

That is a heck of a pile of parts ! Its going to look awesome once you get it all installed . On another topic I love that area of the country . I spent a few months in Corry and Titusville ,
beautiful countryside with lots of backroads to explore .
