That looks great!

Do you mind if I ask what you did suspension/tires wise to get it there and an approximate cost?

Thats EXACTLY what I'm looking for!

Also, did you do that yourself or have it installed?

I'm not going to be able to install it, so I'm sure labor is going to be a large chunk of the cost.

As it sits there it has a 3" body lift that the previous owner had put on. I am replacing it with a 1" body lift and a 2" budget suspension lift (about $225) to maintain the same height. Wheels are 33x12.5x15 Goodyear Duratrac's mounted on 15x8 Cragar Soft 8's. Tires ran me $1225 for a set of five and rims were $300 for five.
I also added wider fender flares to fully cover the wider wheels, those ran about $160.

As for labor, a 1" body lift and the budget suspension lifts are pretty easy to do.
