lift

i have to admit.. the subtle difference putting these 31'' muds on made has really got me impressed.

whats the max lift i can do with just sping/spacer/shock without regear, and kind of front end extras, or looking gay on 31s?

it needs shocks and im really wanting to just get teh spring/spacers done too

do a 2" BB. you can get a kit complete with spacers and shocks. you wont need anything else other then a couple hours of your time to install.

its always worth posting an add. You may want to purchase new shocks though, for preference. Take a look on craigslist, might see something there.

I just unbolted the bottoms of the shocks and let them hang to do the spacers. If their blown change em. Theyre easy to change. I have RE shocks and I like them. They are a bit stiff, but not bad. I put them in when I did my BB and didnt have to change them when I put the new lift in. Check websites around for best prices and look for free shipping.
