I finally got my lift and wheels on. I put the A arm and coil 3" Fabtech lift and 30x9.5 BFG A/T. It took me about...7 hrs :brickknoc I was wrenching it the whole way and had cheap autozone spring compressors and was my first lift ever installing. Overall it was easy except getting the coil compressed enough to fit on my arms. I left the stock shocks on because the idiots at 4 wheels parts gave me the wrong ones. Anyway I love how it looks and how it rides...heres a few pics!

Thanks to dx-r for the wheels, trtle for the lift and to everyone who helped me out with noob questions I had. :waytogo:


Before



After

You should also paint the dust cap black. It will look much better. It will blend in more with the wheel instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.

Yeah it is gonna be higher...as soon as I get more money haha I went broke making it look like that so I just have to wait a lil while longer.

Yeah the dust cap will be painted...these pics were right after the lift was done and washed.

And yes I still have my sway bar on. You took yours off right? Whats the difference?

The removal of the sway bar allows the front suspension to travel more independantly side to side; it will handle better on rough terrain. The down fall is that you will experience more body roll while cornering, but with the fabtech coils being so stiff I doubt it will make much of a difference.

If you remove the sway bar, take corners more easily until you get use to the way your truck handles without it. If you don't like the way it rides without it put it back on... it takes about ten minutes. :waytogo:

Looks good man. Dont listen to everyone else.... Its a mini, I say you stay with 3" and save your money!! :waytogo: I think it looks perfect all leveled out:headbang:

Im go to be installing the same lift you have, and was wondering what are the dimensions of your wheels and tires? (diameter, width, backspacing?)
