Going for the lift
Ive waited for my tires to be toast and now that one is slashed (and im single so no expensive GF to eat up my pay check) its time for the lift and tires
Im debating on one of two things, and need input.
option one: a set of 285/75 (33/10.5) and a 3 inch lift up front, two inch in rear. It would give it a better stance and id keep it on stock rims. thinking im gonna buy a set of Kenda Klevers M/T off ebay ($650 free shipping) and coil spacers and blocks. Im just not sure if it will be what I want but I wont know till I do it.
The other Option (2) is to go 6 inches. Pretty much take out those body lift blocks taking up space in my closet and sticking them under my truck on top of the 3 inch suspension lift. then I have a friend that said he could get me a new set of 35x12.5x16.5 that have been sitting un used in a garage for $350 i just need to buy rims (priced at summit $280). my only problem is this. If I do the body lift can I still use my bed as I have been. About 3 weeks ago i moved 3 yards of top soil (yard a shot) and I dont want to give that up. one friend said to take steel pipe that is a little bigger than the blocks and put them over the rear but im not sure how good that would be. I just dont want to give up my hauling ability.
So I ask the Comunity for input and your opinion
On a side note I was gonna put in a 5 inch RC lift but I bought another Commuter car so I could do this work to the truck and not be out a car (about a $2800 investment) so the $800 lift kit is out of the question especially since im heading back to school
