Bought a drivers side window crank and a rear wiper arm while I was there. Went home painted the wiper arm (and both front wiper arms), replaced the arm and crank, and then pulled all the body moldings off. It gets bedlined tomorrow am and my dads buddy is a body guy so he is repairing the only rust/rot on the truck. Right above the windshield has a few spots and at least one of them leaks.


I'm also now considering trimming the fenders when I get the lift so I can go a little bigger than 31s. With a 3.5" lift can I run 32's or 33's?

With trimming you can easily run 33's with a 3.5" lift

Sweet. Thanks

Now, does anyone have any recommendations for the cheapest way to do the lift without sacrificing all the quality? I am pretty new to this stuff. I've had lifted trucks before but I bought em that way. I want to do this one all on my own.

For the lift you want and for great ride quality is Rubicon Express here the 3.5" super flex kit with monotube shocks for a decent price. http://www.4x4groupbuy.com/store/rub...ocks-p-34.html

If you trim big you should be able to pull off 32's and still be able to flex pretty good.
