Beautiful truck! I mean this with no disrespect, but why are you doing this to a 2WD truck? Lift and sliders for what? You have done a great job planning the build, but with the money you've already invested in the truck, why didn't you drop the extra couple of grand for 4x4?

Because the chicks at the mall dig lifted trucks.


Seriously though....I personally have no need for 4wd so why spend for it. This is my daily driver. I like the look of my truck lifted with bigger tires and really that is what it boils down to. I've had this truck 10 months and it has not seen the dirt once...that should be changing this weekend.
My plan is that when I need a 4wd i'll pull out the towstrap and hook up to one...way cheaper and it makes the 4WD guys feel like they have bigger penises.

Fair enough. Though sliders don't seem to make much sense as they don't really change the look of the truck. To each their own.

If his truck is an OR edition, then youd be surprised what that E-locker can do. I've done some crazy shit in mine..

It is the OR edition with the e-locker.
The other thing is the sliders do have a function....no more door dings almost every car door will now hit the sliders instead of the body. I also think that it does look better with the sliders...now when walking up to my truck it hides the frame that you could see clearly. But to each his own....now lets slam those beers!

A 2wd can't damage the underside of their truck therefore sliders are pointless

The sliders look good and are in fact functional. I've had several 2wd and 4x4 trucks and sliders are always good to have.

Somewhat of a silly comment IMO, but to each their own right.

did you have any problems with your alignment? Thinking about doing this setup I could use some help though I have Billies set at 1.75 with stock springs now.

This setup is actually better than having your billies set at 1.75. The spindle lift allows your geometry to stay exactly as it was when stock if you set the billies to 0. I have mine set to .85 with the spindles and my alignment was not even an issue...it came out perfect. spindle lift is the way to go if you are 2wd.

As a DD I see no need to trim anything. only time i've ever rubbed is offroad.

I did the method where you use your floor jack under the LCA to support the coil while you take off the top nut. Let the jack down and the coil decompresses, remove the shock and spring from the truck, move the snap ring where you want it on your billies then reverse the procedure....very very easy to do.
