Alingment?

Installed my 3" lift and 33's today. Could I drive it 40 or so miles to work tomorrow without an alingment without killin the tires too bad? It drives pretty good, I just didn't get done early enough today

I wouldn't drive to much like that . I would run the stock tires till you get it done

So you think 40 miles would be too much? I could dig my other car outta the snow in the morning and take that instead but I'm trying to avoid that, but I'd rather do that then F up my purty 33's

You could put 5K miles worth of wear on your tires in that 40 mile trip due to your toe-in being excessive. The taller the lift, the greater the amount of toe-in that is created that that must be dialed back out.

If you didn't disconnect or change the tie rod, it'll still be very close. The steering wheel probably won't be centered, but that won't wear the tires. Do it when it's convenient - or do it like Jerry's posted here many times.

Look at the tire imprint in the snow - if it looks like the tread pattern is not not smeared, drive it till it's convenient.

Looks like I'm diggin out the Honda in the morning, at least It's better then screwing my new tires up. I'll get it dialed in when I get home and put up some pics for everyone to enjoy
