Lift & Wheels Done! (pics)

So finally after a long wait and 10 hrs of bloody knuckles and sore bodies two buddies and I got it done.

TeraFlex 2.5 lift with Billstein 5100's, exhaust spacers, Pro Comp 7069, Kelly safari TSR 315-75-16, Smitty oversize tire carrier.

Learned a lot, and had a great time!

Looks nice.

Did you decide not to go with the center caps on the wheels?

To be honest i forgot to put the center caps on but I kind of like the industrial (raw) look, plus I have gorilla black lugs on the way and I think that will complete the look I want.

looks awesome, pictures are kind of blue but I get the gist!

x2 on the ride vs stock, what were the biggest differences you noticed?

Crappy photos on the phone I will post some good ones later to do it justice. Ride is noticeably stiffer and can feel a difference with the larger tires ( I have 3.73 gears). Keep on being paranoid that we left something out or did something wrong but it drives true (after much tinkering to get the steering wheel aligned).

Looks great, BTW I don't think that paranoid feeling will go away for a while- it's been hanging on for over 3 weeks now with me lol

You have any planes on regearing? How's the tranny shifting with the 35's. I'm thinking of 35's also and from what I read the 2012's with the new transmission. The 373 is like a 410 on the older transmission. Thanks for the info and post.

I have a 6 speed and I do feel the effects of the 35's. 6th gear is only good on level highway or of course with a decline. Otherwise it has plenty of pull and no problem keeping up with traffic. I do plan on re-gearing and at the same time installing lockers. If you want to the 35's i would get them I considered 33's but i knew that as soon as i would have had them installed i would kicked myself for not getting the 35s.
