    I have read mention of waiting until 20k miles before lifting a truck?... i guess to let it settle? Is there any truth to this or should I go ahead and lift it? i don't want to wait!!!

    You can lift when you want. Most of the time you are putting new parts in anyway.

    Justin, I am certified in this area and if you need help breakin' that baby in, you let me know. We have a special circuit out here where we can break that baby in in less than 4,000 miles! :)







    I did it as soon as I could get the parts!

    I'd even add that it is a great way to get to know your new truck.

    If you are going to do it and you can afford it (while keeping money in the bank too!) - do it when you can.

    Otherwise if you are putting it off 'cause you haven't decided what or how to do it, or you will wipe out your savings - wait! It still can be a lot of fun and depending upon what you want to do with your truck - you may be good with it the way it sits! You can get to a lot of places in a stock truck than you can in a stock Civic!

    While we're at it...

    What model?
    How do you plan on doing it?
    4? 2? or 6 wheel drive?
    TRD? Off road? Sport?
    What type of lift?
    What brand components?
    Are you doing a self-install? Shop?
    Where?

    And that kind of mistake/first take, was why I asked the OP what he was planning so he might be able to save the first take and do the 'right thang!' :)

    Yep, there's nothing that needs breaking in pre-lift.

    Like they said, make sure you do it right... or at least the way you want it. I guess the only break-in time is the time it takes you to break-in your lift knowledge.
