Tires r Bald... LIFT TIME!
 
I have an 06 GC crying for new tires

I was thinking the following for a lift:

265/70/17 Nitto Trail Grapplers
Front and Rear bilstein HD's
Daystar 2" lift
Moto Metal's 951
spidertrax spacers


edit: Just have to figure out if everything will work in collaboration or if i will need spacers or pinch weld mod or both.

Lift it, lift it! You won't be disappointed! I love the black wheel idea too.

yes, http://www.offroadunlimited.com/orus...idCategory=760



Boychiks, I think I got around 6000 miles on my forteras, but I accelerate as fast as possible all the time, so my fronts are worse then my backtires. I really don't want to rotate them And would rather just go with my lift : )



with my setup, I'm wondering if i need any spacers??? like 1.5" any suggestions?

You'll def want the spacers. I have the 2.5" rough country lift w 1.5" spidertrax wheel spacers. You'll want the extra width and it rides much better w the spacers. Plus looks meaner! If you go up to 265 tires, you may want to do the pinch weld mod. I have a tiny amount of rubbing when I make hard lefts and I'm running 255s. Gl and can't wait to see the final product!

PS the Bilsteins are the sh!t!! You may also wanna look into getting a SRT rear sway bar. Thats my next mod. You don't "need" it but it'll improve the body roll. Hope this helps

Doesn't the daystar 2" lift already include spacers like spidertrax? it Includes Front Strut Spacers, Strut Plates and Rear Coil Spacers.

Am i getting confused?

No clue cuz I have the rough country lift. But if it says it "includes" spacers, then you're all good!!

I have the OME MD lift and 265/70/17 BFG KM2s and I needed the pinch weld mod.

Just ordered everything except bilsteins. I will wait to hold them off with the sway bar and such.

This should take about a week and half to get shipped and installed. I will place the finished product in my top post.

Hope it is not as hot and humid as it is Bmore, Maryland! :headbang:
