Installed RC 2.5" lift

Finally put in my RC 2.5" spring lift. Seeing how it was sunday, i couldnt get my 35"s mounted (using my stock rims), i put my stock wheels back on. Leaving now to get my tires mounted. I will update with that pic when i get home.

Before:




Lift (stock tires):

I meant to ask if there was one closer up. I see pictures of lifted with bigger tires. I'm tryin to get an idea of stock size with a lift. Most pictures are when everything is done.

Murphy's Law #1063a:

As soon as the loctite on your wheel spacers reaches maximum bonding strength, your brake calipers will go belly up.

Murphy's Law #1063b:
However if you forget the loctite said brake caliper will function perfectly well, until your wheel falls off.
