Re: ready for the lift
Skyjaker makes a 2 inch drop PITMAN arm, which is the arm on the box, not the one your thinking of which is the steering arm that bolts to the axel tube.
I would go with a 4 but i hear that the rear shackle flip only truly nets about 3.5-3.75 on the rear, and the front sees a more drastic lift because the front springs wear faster then the rears (motor is on them 24/7) so im mostly afraid of having the front higher then the rear.
I think a 3" would keep the rear a tad higher so if i put a load in it or tow, it will level out.
what do you think?
XJer, the springs are in real real good shape and the truck was an old farm truck. they have plenty more life left in them but that was a good point to bring up.
