cmaggi2 I'll probably be cutting my fenders soon too. Im just worried the 33s will look too small.
07-10-2013 05:28 PM
Adventurejeep I plan on cutting my fenders. And here i have the rear coils but not the rear shocks yet.

cmaggi2 If you use bigger than stock tires or disconnect, you will definitely need longer bumpstops. I was rubbing the fenders like crazy all weekend. This isn't the best pic, but it gets the point across.

MarkinOhio No need for bump stop extensions, stock sway bar links work fine, even now that I have added a Daystar ComfortRide 1 3/4 inch lift.

Adventurejeep Nice. This is my max travel pic.
05-19-2013 07:42 PM
JKBrad Suspension is at max travel when it's hanging upside down. So of course it'll look taller.
05-19-2013 07:23 PM
Adventurejeep Idk how to flip it but maybe yall can tell.
05-19-2013 07:22 PM
Adventurejeep Hopefully this works. I think one is upside down.

I also got some rubi shocks slightly used for around $100 and added a TF leveling kit. Shocks helped the ride. I do have some pics next to some stockers a few pages back. Totally happy with the results. Post some before n after pics love to see 'em.

Serious? Do you know what your spring rates were before? I replaced mine 14/55 with 18/59's. Gained 1.5-1.75" in front and about 1" in rear.

I used stock until I added leveling kit. Stock bumpstops as well.

I still have my '97 F250 Heavy Duty. I'd get rid of my wife before I'd get rid of that truck! It's a beast.

I'm wondering if the 60s will beat me up if I install them. Anyone else have them on a 2dr?
