    Ultra Drifter 16 X 8 with 285/75/16 BFG AT KO's....

    First drive we rubbed on the front mudflap on hard turn....as many have....popped off the mud flaps....a little shaping of the lower fender inner edge where there was a slight rub and walla....no more rubs!!!!

    Probably going to trim up the inside of the mudflaps and reinstall.....

    Sweet, i just installed the TOYTEC Billy coilovers and AAL this week with Diff Drop. Went with 265/75/16's because of rubbing but i think next set will be 285's and i'll suck it up and do the trimming! Your truck looks great! Thanks for the pics. How long did the AAL take you? i didn't clamp my springs hard enough and the holes ended up shifting on me. Spent about 2 hours on the first side, 45 min on the second haha.

    Did you throw the 3 degree shims in back or leave them out?

    Once we got the jacks in the right spots it wasn't but 30 minutes per side...use jack stands on the rear crossmember...you'll have to move the floor jack back and forth to get the pressure on and off to set the springs...we had to cut a slit for a screwdriver in the centering pin to back off the bolt also....

    About $1500 for lift, $1500 for wheels and tires.....

    Yup, $3000...I also owe my nephew a few bucks and my brother in law a bottle of wine.the blue truck in the background is my Nephew's show quality F150 with a six inch lift on 35's.....he's pretty savvy for 18, I see him having his own shop some day....

    We put the shims in....Toytec recommends them and they weren't too much trouble once we had the center pins aligned...
