Well after all the threads trying to decide what to do....I finally got all the parts in and all of it put on. 3/4 shock bolts broke....but we welded in new studs in place, and just put a nut on from the bottom. Should be plenty strong, probably stronger than what was there before. Bigger wheel's/tires would be nice....but I think it looks great compared to stock.
Here's a pic of the finished product, 2" spacers, new Rancho 9 ways, 32x11.5 Pro Comps....Rock Crawler wheels.
I know it needs an alignment badly now.....but does anyone notice their steering wheel turn alot easier after a lift and bigger tires? Getting used to the way it handles differently now....seems to wobble a little when turning, could just be alignment maybe?
Oh, and as soon as it was done, what better way to make sure everything was re-attached and snug up than hitting the construction site in my subdivision and getting just a little mud on the brand new tires
