So i just got my alignment done after my lift I installed. When I walked back into the shop to pick up the truck, I was greeted my the sales associate by "You alignment was TWEEEAAAAKKEEDDDDDDD" hahaha gave me a good laugh but my goodness, what a difference. I was told it was over an 1.5" out of alignment and he got the casters and everything else all squared away for me.

Down side of this is that I will be needed new front tires sooner then I wanted due to the fact that I was too busy to get it done earlier.... Looks like im getting bigger tires now!

Click on my old '95 build in my sig. I had 31's with Icon midtravel all around.

Thanks, your truck looks just like my truck, except a lil taller, it's even the same color. That looks fine.

Looked good. Maybe, i'll just keep the 31"s, so I don't need to worry about re-gearing it, unless I find it needs the extra clearance with 33"s

You shouldn't need to worry about gearing for a while just going to a 33"

That's probably true, if I didn't tow, anything. But, I tow a pop up trailer and haul a couple of dirt bikes at the same time with it.

I'd hit that with a light sand paper, just enough to kill the rust, and just hand apply oil to all your shafts.

There's a double drainage thing by my house I hit almost every day, I can get a little speed hitting it and usually almost bottom out.

I've done light wheeling with these and have gotten them close to bump numerous times

so it's not that

and I drive within feet of salt water/directly in salt spray daily... but I rinse my suspension every time, because im scared shitless of rusting my new MT


but...........................................

Any MT guys jump their trucks? Even small stuff, whoops or whatever just light stuff... not like LT guys can do. LT is so sexy but MT is so much more practical I feel like.
