Talking New lift, New shoes, New look!

Had a good amount of issues right after my Zone 3" lift, all is resolved and I couldn't be happier!

Zone 3" lift
TC drop
Rock Crawler front track bar
Drop pitman arm
15 x 8 Cragar Soft 8's
33 x 12.5 GY Duratrac's
Removed milk jugs up front

Let me know what you think!

AFTER

You can fit 12.50 tires on 15x8 wheels? What's the max for 15x7 wheels?

I'm pretty certain that you can fit 32x11.5. But don't quote me on that.

Looks good! If it were me, I'd hit the flares with some paint now, and maybe lose the step. Either way, it turned out good

Painting the flares for sure. I'm still on the fence for the step. I mean I'm 6'5" so I don't use it haha. So I may take it off if I get rock sliders.

I think if you take it off itll make it look taller, plus there wont be as much to rip off on the trail. Rock sliders is a good option though.

Good point. Time to start pinching pennies for sliders.
