Denver parking is the worst. Talk about soulless miscreants.

Came down hard on my lower control arm, climbing over a rock on my way to my hunting spot, now have a clunking sound whenever I hit a bump, I need a bigger lift! Lol

Those are pretty nasty. Lol. My bushings are good, but the control arm itself is bent and now hits on the mount

Mtr/k's do run tall. I've ran 35s for about ten yrs and never rubbed. Well I'm rubbing now that's for sure. ..

My 33's run 32" exactly at 22psi. No too bad IMO. I was just wondering if those 285's hold truer to 33" than mine do.

Picked up my latest project from my neighbor. Time for a proper HID retrofit! Got the whole headlights from a Nissan murano, and they even came with the ballasts and bulbs!

I put the same lift on my '03 several months ago! I've been very pleased with it. (Mostly road driving... very light-duty off-road stuff.)
...but I 'm running 33x10.5 BFG's.

I look at your screen-name, and your location, and I can't help but wonder if your boss's name is "Jeff". (I have more derogatory nick-names I prefer to use, but I'll keep it nice for now.)

Sucked it up and spent 40$ on a 40 piece ratchet/socket set for his tool box. Made by Stanley... Anyone have experience with them? Wish i had the cash for some snap-on goods

What's the deal with Jeff? Is he a jerk? European?
