    Hello,
    I thought I would post here due to the fact that I have had been a serious user of this site for the last three years. Just logging on, getting answers, logging off. I've never had an issue that wasn't easily solved by reading previous post's on here! Anyway, I just got my lift kit installed today, still pretty amped about the whole deal. At any rate, I'll get back on here and post my thoughts about the old man emu and the overall ride, feel, look etc. Hopefully, someone will be able to benefit from my post in some way. As far as I can tell, it's going to be awesome, i'm having an alignment done in the morning, but as of right now it was such a new feeling that I can't even really describe it. Steering is very different than before. I don't want to rush to conclusions, but i think after my alignment tomorrow, it's going to ride so smooth, and so nice I'm going to be very happy! It'll be like butter.

    I really love the look of your truck. Perfect stance and gait. It is exactly the look I'm hoping to achieve when I lift my reg. cab in the next few weeks. I know you said you put the biggest Goodyear Duratracs you could on the truck but you didn't mention the size. If you don't mind my asking, what size tires are you running? Are they 265's??

    Hey brother I appreciate that. Although I have done some things differently since I originally got the lift and posted these pics. Please contact me before you go through with your modifications at kuykencl@gmail.com I have some vital information for you:) I originally installed too stiff of springs and a spacer in the front, didn't install an adjustable upper control arm and a couple other things of vital importance when it comes to how the truck handles after lifting it.
    I hope you have a great day
