Finished my lift!

Well after much backache, frustration and ultimately...joy... I finished my lift:
2" Rough Country with Bilsteins all around and and a nice new set of 265/70/17 Hankook Dyna Pro ATM RF10's!

I love her!

This is before:


This is after the lift but before the tires:



And now, with lift and tires!!!

Good luck on your install, I hope you don't encounter the problems we did...rust!!!! ugh!

Yes it does look higher, we did put the "Front Strut Leveler Spacer" on as well...but with that and the lift, Bilsteins and the bigger tires, I had to have gone up a good 3inches or more!

I am looking for a great way to determine if it really sits higher. Right now, my best guess knowing We did nothing different than what I stated above, it is level now but the front wheel well is actually cut "Larger" and the hood is higher than the chrome along the bottom of the windows..so maybe its giving the illusion of sitting higher? I could be way off and it is sitting higher, but....I LOVE IT! and with all the work we did and troubles we ran into...yeah not reversing it for ANYTHING!
