Looks great! Was it as easy as you thought it would be? How was the quality of the Rough Country kit?

Re: Finished Lift! Got Updated Pic\'s

Good quality, nice fit.

The install went real smooth, even without any help what so ever. (working in the yard, instead of on concrete was a PITA)

The 4inch lift is deffinetly closer to 6inches, if not more.

I had to cut my exhaust pipes to get the rear springs in.

It made my 33's look like 235's. But..I guess thats a good reason to put on some 35's. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

The ride is alot better now, smoother on the highway, no bounce, and I really cant tell that the sway bar is missing.

The truck sits level again, thats a big plus.

The brake lines were kinda of a PITA too, especially trying to bleed the system by myself.

All in all, good stuff, smooth install, smooth ride. Add this to the list of things that I'm Glad I've done. [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Congrats............you bastard............[img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]..............sigh[img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img].......

The springs will settle some, they all do that. From what I hear Rough Countrys do stay right around 4". I know Rezzy Joe has them on his truck. He likes them.

Jeez, 2 leaf spring packs, oy, car makers sure can be cheap.[img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

That lift makes a big difference! I am purchasing a lift next week but I'm not sure what size. After seeing yours I probably will go with a 4". Beautiful truck.

I'm going to re-route the exhaust to either run straight out the back, or just turn down somewhere in the area that the spare tire would go. They deffenitly have to be moved from where they are now though. Glad you like it.
