lifting a 91

Hey guys im new here. i have a few questions for you. i looking to get about two inch lift and 31" BFG mudders. will this be a problem. i was planing on getting the torsion bars weazle was talking about and some blocks for the rear. If i went with a 3 inch body lift as well could i go with 33" BFG mudders. Last question what muffler sound the best on the 4.3, i want a low rumble sound. thanks

Re: lifting a 91

I would recomend staying away from blocks(can cause more probs than there worth)besides
if your trucks axles are like mine it will lower it not raise it. As far as 33" go sheet metal trimming
will be necessary(WeaZle would be the man on that one).Mufflers, I would go with Dynomax or
Flowmaster. Troy is probably the local expert on t-bar replacement too.

WOW...Now Im an expert....Sheesh....This is easy...Now down to the biz.... Im not familliar with the old body style but I'll help as much ads possible. I say go with the 2" body. Less modifying hoses and lines and it looks really good where the 3" shows too much frame I think. The 31" BFG MT's are the best choise in tires you can do. Too much to fit the 33"s without A LOT of fender cutting. Really don't think you could fit them without a suspention lift. The SAW t bars are a really good idea for another inch or two and a really good ride. For the rear you want to flip the axle under the spring pack but you will need a new plate and shock mount on it and new u bolts also eliminate the bar pin style shock mount up top with a bar pin eliminator. Call an off road shop, they will have what you need there. YOur going to need some good, longer shocks too. I recomend getting the Rancho RS9000, Bilstein HD's, or Doechtec make a good line. The better shocks you have the better the ride but can get expencive. The last is muffler. Do you want that rumble inside the cab or out. Really loud everywhere go with the FLowmaster 2 chamber. A nice mellow rumble go with the FLowmaster 3 chamber. If ya need tips on cutting fenders give me a direct mail. Try pulling the rear bed sides instead of cutting the ends. Looks really cool with them pulled out.
