I used Rough Country 2.5" springs and Zone shocks. Nothing else. My bump stops are not right yet. I need to install my MCE flat fenders then set the stops.

My bump stops are still stock and the tires would hit the fenders the way they are if I went off road. I need to install the flat fenders and other parts then I'll set the bump stops.

Before, with standard wheels and tires, no lift, and after, with 2.5in RC lift and 31in Duratracs. Nice balance of meatiness and wheel well clearance, IMHO

Well, you have a choice - I don't know anything, and am mechanically challenged, so I'll be paying someone! Thanks
