You gonna provide close up pics of what you did?

So far you're the only 1.5" BL gen 2'er I've seen.
I think the factory skid plate in the front would help hide the gap in the front:



And nerf bars on the side hide the frame there...



I think with the 3" coils, 1.5" BL, skid plate and nerfs you still come in under a grand and have a 4.5" lift for a lot less $$$$$

Right now, my truck is essentially stock. I plan to eventually throw $$ at it, but not yet. I picked up a set of 255/85/16s. Does anyone know if these would fit under my 2012 base model 4x4 with a 1" BL? Thanks.

I don't have any pictures currently... I have a 1" and honestly you cant barely tell. 1.5" might be noticeable because the lip under the tailgate ends. but 1" is fine. and I am super pickey about that shit.

p.s. if you were unaware the 4crawler 1" kit does not include brackets, they are unnecessary, neither bumpers move, and the front bumper can stretch up one inch without structural failure.

I simply cut my rear plate bumper brackets in half, moved them down 1.5" and re-welded them. 1.5" extra gap looked awful and I imagine a 1" gap would look just as bad. Also note, getting your spare tire out from under the truck with a 1.5" BL takes alot more work and possibly cutting a very small insignificant part of your frame off. I can take pics if needed. If your have a plate bumper in the front there is no "stretching" steel. Something to think about. Front plate bumper had to be rebuilt to match as well. Feel free to pm with questions
