Pics of my 3" Teraflex lift build

Well, after 6 hours my first suspension lift is complete! 3" Teraflex with 35" Duratrac's. Everything went smoothly except for a little bit of trouble with the new brake lines. Finally decided to give up on using the old brake line brackets. Here are the pics!

Man. Installing a lift upside down. That had to be difficult.

How does it ride and take highway expansion joints and small bumps at speed? Looks good.

It rides very smooth. Not like a dump truck! After we installed it I had to drive it home 60 miles on the freeway, and it surprised me by how well it handled. It sways a little more, but that is to be expected. Small bumps are no problem. Very smooth ride

Looks great! I was looking at the 3" Teraflex as well. Are those 33s? or 35s? I think the tire read 315/70/16 and I think that's a 33 right?

Now all you need is a 1 inch body lift, get rid of those puny 35's and get some 37 inch man tires
