Looks bad ass throw some 285's on there and your ready to rock.. What kind of rims and tires your putting on? I have the same set up but I went with the TC UCA's as opposed to camburg.

Why did you go with AP swaybar links? I broke an OEM link when putting on my lift, so I decided to "upgrade". After one winter, the heim joints on the AP links are completely rusted.

No reason in particular. I thought they were decent, but guess I was wrong. What did you go with?

Looks good, man. I like it.

How high did you lift it?

How much (ballpark) did a setup like that cost you?

I'm starting to do some research. Trying to figure out how high you can go until you start running into problems with ride etc. Also trying to figure out what the max size tire you can go as well. I want it to be capable for off road use, but still ride somewhat decently.

Your setup looks like what I'm going for. Dig it!

Still running them. If the heim joints seize up this winter, I will replace them with better nickel-plated or stainless ones.

Only barely rubs on the drivers side at half turn like barly barly.
Only does it at one point when wheels are turned. Turn more it goes away turn less it goes away. And only at lows speeds ?
I have no idea why only on drivers side? Both shocks are set at factory length.

Figured out why it only rubs a tiny bit on drivers side. Because they are both set the same. I nead to set drivers slightly higher.

Now I got to get a center punch and a spanner

BINGO

Yeah it sucks the FOX C/O's don't come with a spanner wrench.. I ordered mine from a website downsouth gave me.

Are your C/O's maxed out in terms of length or did you keep them the way the came? I believe they're set to 2.25-2.50 in length when you receive them.

Good looking truck man, check out the old Toyota in the background. Mid 70's model maybe?

I kept them the way they came yes they come about 2.5 just depending mine were both right at 2.5. I didn't go any higher as I was told the ride would be stiff.

Tires are Toyo open country MT 275/70R18

Did you notice the TRD BBS center caps. . I have the stock silver BBS ones but ordered the TRD ones from TRDparts4U
