    After ordering the lift and tires three weeks ago I finally got it installed. We ran into a few problems after the install. The rims were the wrong offset that I assumed (of course I didnt measure them:der:) so i had to overnight all pro wheel spacers in order to mount my rims and tires. Even after the wheel spacers the tires rubbed the sway bar mounts. So the 2 options were to order new rims or take the sway bar off, so the sway bar came off and now the tires dont rub at any point but im sure ill be corrected once I get the truck off the pavement.

    Nice looking truck! I've always liked the white with black accents together, I should show my dad this, he has a stock version of yours.

    Does the skid plate cover the sway bar if you had it installed?

    Thanks man Im really happy with the way it turned out

    The shop that installed the lift told me not to make an abrupt turn over 60mph :crazy: so im trying to refrain from that ha. but to be honest i havent spent much time driving any truck with a lift on it so it feels different. but im not sure if its the lift that makes it handle different or the sway bar removed.

    it in fact does, and since they had to remove mine three different times its beat and bent to sh*t so im on the market for a new one. Any input would help.

    x2 ha ha
