Total work time=12 hours of me putting the lift on, an hour at the tire shop, 30 minutes getting front end aligned....not a bad weekend. Now my baby sits 3 inches higher off the axles on top of 33x10.50 feet. She looks beautiful! I'll have pics up later today if I can get a digi-cam. And once again, Thanks for the advice!!!
congrats! did you lower the transcase? hows you rear shaft angle? any vibes? i like your choice of 10.50's instead of 12.50's. will be easier on your axles and tranny. how does the front end feel after align? yeah i'm full of questions cause i just did a lift also.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
I did lower the T-case. The kit I bought (Rough Country) came with the drop for it wich was basically 1.5x3in steel tube with holes drilled for the skid plate mounting bolts. It helped the shaft angles ALOT. It lowered the shifters and now going into 2nd, 4th and Reverse takes a little more muscle. I'm going to drive it for a week or so and see if it's a real problem then work it. The front end alignment helped only for wear on my tires. My Camber was off a little and the steering wheel was cocked. The guy at Les Schwab (didn't want to go there but it was the only place open) couldn't get the steering wheel straight so he only charged me half price. I'm going to put a GT steering wheel on it so it's all good. I have a little rubbing at full steering lock wich I'm going to fix with new rims and a different back spacing.
Today is the day! It started raining an hour ago so I'm off to hit the mud after I mount my tow hooks.
