Umm, I'm sure they should be. I only got a 3" lift so I'm not to familiar with the 6"s.

As far as I know, yeah. Im having 4wp do the install because I have no idea how to install a lift on my truck. So Im assuming they will do everything that needs to be done? Hopefully. Haha

Are you running 6" with 35's?

The 35's will severely rub on your body mounts which is on the inner fender closest to the front door. (just if you've never looked.) You won't be able to turn very much. So what some people do is hack them back and plate them to gain extra clearance.
That makes sense...well I guess Ill have some work to do once I get the truck back! How long did it take you to cut them?

Update: I went to 4wp on Friday to talk about when my order would be here, and I am dropping my truck off on Tuesday. So I should have it back by Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning

Just picked my truck up from 4wp this morning! I am so happy with the set up! I took a few pics with my cell phone because I couldnt find my usb cord for my camera...but at least youll see what it looks like! let me know what you guys think. I blacked out my taillights last week too, so it looks clean

Looks awesome man. I will be getting the exact same lift next friday the 12th. although i will be running 33s. Congrats on the lift hope mine looks just as sweet. Pics never do a lift to much justice i think. its always better in person.

On another note, if i wanted to run 37s some day what would i have to do to make that work...would just cutting around clear me enough? how did those Icelanders do that. I promise i'm not trying to high jack the thread The icelander thread never answered the question. the tires on this pic are 37s and i can pretty much get ones that have been deemed "bad" for free from work. they are not bad really so i am gonna start stocking up for the future. they are actually 325/85/16

Thanks man. Youre right about the pictures doing injustice, definitely looks better in person!As far as running 37s with a 6, I dont think it will work. Unless you do a body lift on top of it. Thats just what Ive heard though! I have 35s and when i turn sharply around corners, they rub a bit. But not much.

good to know. i figured as much though. i will be running spidertrax spacers with my tires. that should help a bit but will still need the body lift i figure.
