    Took me three years but yesterday I finally lifted my truck! It's a ome complete lift with dakars in the rear. Wheels are wheelers type A steelies wrapped in 285/75/16 duratracs. It was snowing and I put it on outside so it was a bit more of a pain in the ass then normal! Anyways drives real nice, no vibes so far (keeping fingers crossed) but I do have some trimming to do. Anyways I took a few pics with my phone, I'll get some better ones when this snow goes away.

    Too much, thanks TW.
    Looks great! You are one tough mechanic doing that work in the snow. :crazy: You are going to really like the Goodyears. I am thinking of the dakars myself. Keep us posted.

    I didn't put any spacers in the front, so it's on a pretty good rake. My measurement from ground to fender post lift are:

    Passenger rear: 41 1/2
    Passenger front: 38 1/2
    Driver rear: 41
    Driver front: 38 1/4

    Dakars might settle a bit, I'll have to wait and see

    I like your style. I got the same set up and love it as well. I did not get the top spacer too and have some rake but I did hear the Dakar's will settle. But it does not look to bad. Great looking truck.

    Looks good. Is that the 2" or did you add for the 3" lift?

    Very nice, I have been looking at the same lift for my truck. I love the looks of yours, I like that the rear is higher than the front. Did you put on new upper control arms?

    It's just 2 inch up front and no, no uca yet. I can't get my alignment 100% in spec so I think that will be next on my list. Truck wanders on the highway a bit and I'm told the uca should fix that.

    Oh and thanks by the way!
