hahahahaha Well at least to some extent. Too much higher, I wouldn't like the looks. Sometimes it's funny seeing full size trucks lifted really high with tires that are big but the truck is lifted so high it makes the tires look tiny. Some might consider me in that catagory though. I gues it's all preference and personal opinion.

Yeah ill try to find out what gears i have.
and i've heard and read that some people prefer lifted 2wds over lifted 4wds. i've seen some that look damn good. i've took my 2wd stock through som mud before and its handled pretty good.

Just did

But the only pictures I have of my truck are sitting in the drive way.

Here's a .gif picture that changes from the stock pic to the lifted pic.
I added it to the album but it doesn't change.

well you can run 33s with just the BL or just the spindle. Spindle is much easier to install and can be done by yourself.

I bought mine for my 04 years ago here:

http://shop.suspensionmax.com/Shop/C...id/0/SFV/32526

Of course when I bought them they were only 250...

Body lift you can get at summitracing.com. the body lift is definitely cheaper, just install isn't as easy, unless you can get some buddies over to help.

so from what i understand that if i want to do something like the op wants...then i am okay because my axle is a 97 which translates to 4.10?

i also plan to do 33s, but i am still going to be towing and all that, i just want to make sure i wont lose the power i need to get up those hills!
