So I am planning on getting a 7'' lift over the summer hopefully and I'm looking at the 37'' Nitto Mud Grapplers as my tire of choice. I am wondering:
a) because it is a bolt-on lift, would installing it myself be a good idea? I don't really have any experience with this stuff but I definitely want to learn as I go and have a few more experienced friends with tools willing to help.
b) with tires that big, should I upgrade my gears (I think I'm running the 3.55's, 1997 1500 4X4 5.2 V8) to either 3.92's or 4.10's? I will do some highway driving (maybe even a trip from Chicago to North Dakota where I go to school) and I don't tow anything, I'd just be lugging the 37''s around.
c) Has anyone else installed their own lift and can give me some pointers or have any pictures of the progress?
Also, any comments on this lift? yay or nay? (the 7'' slyjacker on the bottom)
Thanks a ton in advance
