My WK is finally lifted

Well, after 70000km and 2 years I finally got it lifted . OME HD front and back, Pintlers, 265/70/17 Silent Armours, and Jeepinbyal UCA's. I wimped out and had a suspension shop in the city install it, took them 6 hours including alignment. Ride is great, does not feel too rough and handles quite nice. Fuel economy, well it is down, but that was expected.
Couple of pics with the cell phone, gonna go have some fun this afternoon, so more pics later.

Excellent.

It's like a whole new vehicle, right? I remember the shock the first time I got behind the wheel after the lift.

Yup, that I can now relate too. When we picked it up from the shop, the missus and I both looked at each other wondering if it was the same truck. It actually felt bigger. You can really see the difference with it leveled out, looking over the hood.
I may have to take it and recheck the alignment, it seems a bit twichy. Another problem, we went out and had a bit of fun on the back roads around home, found some mud and a couple of big wet holes to play in (pics coming), well afterwards, driving home on the highway at speed, all of a sudden the back end started to shake violently, turns out the back pass wheel nuts backed off, they were only hand tight. I did put a torque wrench on the yesterday too, actually going around the truck twice to make sure. I think I will leave the torque wrench in the back for another few hundred klicks, just in case.

Couple of more pics from yesterday. And yes, jumped right on those UCA's, had the lift on the way, so why not do it all at once.
