Talking New to me lift

I finally got me a lift!!! one of the members on here was selling a black dimond 3 in lift used, so I figure why not go cheap for now untill I can get a real job (college no free time nor money). none the less I got the lift in on friday and saturday afternoon me and my dad put it on. What should of been about 2-3 hours of putting this on took over 7 hours because of all the rusted parts and broken bolt that had to be drilled and tapped,but we got it done. This morning i took a ruler out and measured i know that the body was 17 1/2 in before the lift now it is 22 1/2 so I gained an astonishing 5 1/2 in but only like 2 1/2 to 3 over stock, but that is how bad my old suspension sagged. well here are the pictures of before after and a few during.

here is the front before,

and this is after

Looking good, and it looks like it was much needed. I like the way the original springs were sagging, I think you got all you could, out of them. Your ride should be much better now....... Nice shop, too. I am jealous of your work area.

Looks great. Love the forklift. I had the chance to get one once but didn't think I had any use for it. Now I know what I would have used it for

Yea, There is a huge difference and it rides a whole lot better. as for the trails, I am going to Superlifts 4xadventures and if I am lucky I will be pulled for a trail guide for the guided trail ride that saturday. Also when I get the money I think I am going to get some 32's maybe 33's if the fit well enough. and blue that is actully the machine shop my dad works at, they build massive airplane parts and normally that area is covered with the frames and tools used to make the parts. so I lucked out on the time that i wanted to put it on. this is also the place that i made the 2 in TBS, and the Lightbar that i am going to put on as soon as i get the lights. but none the less thank for the comliments.
