Talk me out of putting a rancho 4" lift on my less swab account, its getting to the point were I cant hardly wait, so I think thats what Ill do in the next week or so, right after I pay off my tires. 1200 bucks over a few monts doesnt seem that bad, plus haveing a taller truck the whole time.

later

How many guys have lifted trucks in the town you live in? I'm saying this because if there is a lot, the ladies won't care as much. Unless you find those shallow girls who just want to ride around in your truck you'll just be a dude with a lifted truck.

PS. You are weird! Why the hel* would you want us to talk you out of that!/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif

Rancho sucks canal water IMO. I just put in a BDS lift and love it... other brands that I looked at were Skyjacker and superlift... both were pretty close.

The women lined up before the lift.... and they lined up after the lift... But I will say a 6" lift is great w/ no stepbars... You gotta help them up into the truck /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

Your idea on the ladies isnt bad, but I doubt it will happen

only problem evan - is that you will have 7" of lift with only 33s. they will look kinda small. i would wait till these tires wear out, then do it all at once - with new tires

RJ your probably right the monts almost half over though so I may go into next month.
I want a 1/2 impact before I get the lift, itll make things much easier on me dureing the install

I hear you on that man. I did the front of my truck with pneumatics, but I didnt have access for the rear ( my compressor blew up long ago ) and tightening those f---ing u- bolts with a deepwell and ratchet was hell.

If you want to come get them, you can borrow my air tools.

Well you guys didnt do very good on talking me out off the lift I think Im going to have them order the lift tomorrow, then Ill borrow RJs air tools And Ill have it made.

One question though, do I have to torch off the existing bumpstop brackets on the frame, or will the kit just come with a extinsion, I was looking at it today and it looks like It will be in the way of the top control arm drop down brackets, hopefully they build there brackets to so the go around the bumstop.

Thanks
The Kid
