I get what ur saying, but wouldn't the added lift be nice so you could flex out more?

Come on just dooooooiiiiiitttttttttt

I agree with him. I wouldn't like a 6" lift either. That's also quite a but of money.

I can flex as much as possible with 31's.

However, 'flex' is a term not familiar to me with my leaf springs. I don't do the kind of wheeling where crazy flex is needed. I like to keep the waggy mostly stock but more capable, which is what I hope to achieve with the body lift

Only in the front to level it out from the bumper and winch. Rubis sit a little higher than non-rubis do.

His sliders take up a good five inches of clearance away from his underside. He'll be happy with a lift next month.

when i did my paint restoration (rubbing compound and polishing compound then wax) i got one of those shaggy buffing wheels at harbor freight and used it on a 7" sander or whatever, worked like a charm, i've thrown it in the wash a few times and still as good as new.

They do and don't. They don't stick down below the frame level, but they do take away quite a bit from under the rocker panels. I've come down on the pretty hard several times, and only lost coating. No dents! I'm very please with them, an they work remarkably well as a step. I've done SWAT style standing and shooting from it(I know, it technically a drive by and illegal to shoot from a moving vehicle) it was fun, but could have been better if my driver knew how to drive a stick in 4LO. It felt like I was in a rodeo! Rofl. He kept stabbing the gas and letting off! It was pretty funny, and I still hit my target! Lol

Came by Khris' place and helped strip the rear of his Explorer. Also picked up a new CC piece.

Pretty good. New Kahr CM9. Picked it up for $440. Need to send some rounds down range with it still but it is big enough caliber to put a hurting on someone and small enough size to conceal easily. Keep an eye out on backpage if you are looking for an LC9. When I was buying this, there was some guy buying a Beretta Nano to replace his LC9 with. Said his LC9 would be up after he got to shoot his new gun.

Good to hear, I am considering the XDS .45 right now, it felt pretty good when I fired it and it felt pretty comfortable IWB carry when I gave it a test drive. I shot the LC9 but it just didn't feel right in my hand + I didn't want to have to buy another caliber of ammo.

Was the old starter covered in oil?
