So I put on my lift and my wheel spacers! The truck looks way better and just the right amount of beef! I will post some pics another day. No internet at the house right now! Next step, wheels and tires!

Thanks! I love the tougher look and the ride height. I thought about keeping the wheels but they are 18's and I really do not know alot about tires, but I am not sure if there is a decent 18" all terrain or mud terrain tire out there. If you have any ideas or suggestions I am open to them! I also really want some nice all black wheels, the chrome on these ones is starting to peel....

Supposedly with this set up I can run 32" tires...there are a set of black wheels in the classifieds I would buy, but I am not sure what backspacing and offset I need (not a real wheel and tire guy like some on here) so I will have to go to Les Schwab or something....

check out the official tire fitment guide in the offroad section... and those black procomps won't fit without wheel adapters

Before you go buying new tires, etc. Read the off road forum. Regardless of lift and spacers you still have othe mods that have to be done depending on how big of tire you go and wether you go at or mt. If you want to go offroad, you should deffinately try and get away from those 18's and please to not go with any bigger then that. Its hard enough for people to take an offroad style TB seriously without seeing a lifted one with 20's:weird:. There is a chart and exactly what needs to be done when you go bigger, if you havent checked it out i would look into that for sure.

I like the lift on your TB. How many inches did you lift it?

Brandon used a BDS kit I believe, 2" all around.

Member markmc makes 2" lifts for ~$130+shipping. Best price out there, and the quality is just as good if not better than the big corporations.

Too bad Brandon sold his TB before I could buy his lift off him...dang it!:duh:

The pictures aren't working. :sadcry::sadcry: I really want to see how this looks so I can decide to do this to mine or now, even just a small lift would look nice I'm sure.

you can post the pictures here by doing this
