    Hello everyone,


    been browsing the youtubes for some inspiration on what I want to do and i stumbled upon this guy:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THPQXOQpUGE

    Details: 6" Fabtech Lift
    18" XD Monster wheels
    35/12.50-18 Nitto Trail Grapplers

    He mentions 2-3" of extra lift (im guessing to the body?) for the tires.


    Would this be practical for some good trails? Hell it looks like a monster..

    What I would add:

    ARB Front and Rear Locker,(I have a Sport)

    Another add-on question, and this will probably become the laughing stock thread (cheers to me being the new guy), i DID search this but can't find a appropriate answer.

    If I have a 6" fabtech lift, how would i increase the front to 8" and back to 9"?

    If I remember right, he had that work done so he can "drive on the beach." Not sure why one would need a 9" bro lift to drive on sand :crazy:

    Aloha,

    If you order the fabtech lift with the new fron coil-overs you can adjust them (ride height) to match the back. I ended up replacing the rear stock leaf springs with new ones that were 3" higher than what fabtech did. (6") So when i replaced the rear leafs, the back sat 9"!! So the only way to fix that was to crank up the front another 2" to give me 8" in the front and 9" in the back so the truck looks correct

    For the comment about the beach, Your right there is no real point, however I am sure you prob understand now why I did it...

    I hope this helps some..

    This is with 8" front 9" back

    In this picture you can see how much heigher the back in vs the front before adjusting it...

    I hope this helps......
